The reopening of schools during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) period reflects the government’s concern over students welfare, especially those in the rural areas who have limited broadband service to enable them to participate in lessons conducted online, said Senior Minister (Education) Mohd Radzi Md Jidin.

He said that while the ministry looked for ways to address the problem, the government decided on reopening schools in phases with Covid-19 prevention standard operating procedures (SOPs) in place.
