“Compared to high school, the government has done everything it could and has kept its commitments thanks to the important work of the prefects and the school community.”
Interviewed from the Corriere della Sera, the Minister of Education Lucia Azzolina counterattacks: “many Regions have pulled out of the agreement on the reopening – she says – and it would be good for families and students to understand why”.
According to Azzolina, “the school closes first because it was socially placed in the back of the closet. They have to explain to me why, where almost everything is open, students can go for an aperitif in the afternoon, while they cannot go to class with a mask, sanitizer and separate desks. The point is cultural, not medical “.
“The government has done its part – observes the minister – some presidents do not realize that by closing schools they cause economic damage to the country, which will pay for the lack of competence of its young people. But it is also a human and relational damage. I claim the idea of ​​Dad, but it can never replace face-to-face teaching. I receive letters from students who are very angry, apathetic, disappointed, or who feel they are being treated by smearers. There is a very worrying investigation by the psychologists on the prolonged closure ”.
“I respect everyone’s opinion but school cannot be used as a political battleground. They must understand that the school is a lifeline for disadvantaged families – continues Azzolina – and if they condemn thousands of students to drop out, they will take responsibility “.
As for the proposal to vaccinate teachers, Azzolina observes that “the government and Commissioner Arcuri are doing an excellent job. The plan was decided by the Health and it is expected that in a first phase the health workers and our grandparents will be vaccinated. Then I asked and obtained that it is up to the school staff ”.
