The Punjab government will launch a special enrolment campaign next week for children who have not been able to return to school due to the pandemic crisis.
According to sources close to the government, more than 600,000 students have left education due to smart bans in the country. Despite government efforts to accommodate schools and colleges during this time, many students, especially children, have had to leave school due to various unforeseen circumstances.
After due consideration and the lifting of strict regulations by the provincial government, schools in Punjab will shortly be accepting children as part of the special enrollment campaign.
In 2020, Pakistan was one of the first countries in the world to introduce widespread school closings due to the coronavirus.
Now, in 2021, schools and colleges across the country are reopening their locations to resume interactive learning in strict compliance with Standard Operating Instructions (SOPs). Students are not called to school on the same day and each class is divided into two groups.
