Lucia Azzolina continues her political battle for the reopening of high school classes, but the Regions have made it clear that they are against it and that we will have to wait a little longer. Speaking at Uno Mattina, on Raiuno, the Minister of Education said that “the Regions will decide when to reopen: I as a Government have put in place everything that was necessary to restart the school, we have worked on public transport, sanitizers, masks . Concrete and real actions have been taken; when the governors decide that the children can go back to school they can do it, everything is ready ”.

The children, however, continues the minister, are suffering the consequences of long distance teaching. “Distance learning is a measure
which I wanted and believe in but which cannot be taken too long, it risks creating inequalities, it affects the weakest children because school is not just a place for learning, it is life, sociality, care for affectivity, even with respect to situations difficult family members. The kids are right that they want to go back to school. I don’t think we can think of recovering in the summer: we must recover today. It is easier to close the school because the school does not need refreshments “says Azzolina, adding that” I will be the one to ask for training refreshments today: there are also primary school children who have gone to school less but I know very well that they come from 3 previous year’s dad months. I will ask for training refreshments to make enhanced learning even in the afternoon, to educate on affectivity and increase psychological help: now we need to intervene, certainly not in the summer ”.

Azzolina explained that the training refreshments are used “to do remedial courses not only for high school but also for primary school. On January 7, 5 million went back to school, but they have been coming from dad’s months and we need to catch up now. I will ask for training refreshments and to give psychological support.
Fights among young people have become more frequent during this period, ”he noted.

On the school in the Recovery Plan “there are over 27 billion considering all European funds” underlines the minister, according to which “with this figure a 360-degree plan can be developed to revive the education that has been mistreated over the years,” put in a closet ‘and that must finally be raised “. It will be different if a government crisis puts these funds at risk: “something will happen: I avoid making predictions about the government crisis, but this weakens, in addition to the political class, also the country: in a moment of pandemic, in which we must vaccinating, reopening the school, where there are many businesses in difficulty – says Azzolina – what is needed is not a government crisis, I hope a sense of responsibility prevails. This should be the main point to look at when doing politics ”.

On vaccinations, “teachers were considered a priority category but after health care and the elderly. It is true, school is an essential public service, even Ata staff must be vaccinated as soon as possible. Italy is vaccinating quickly, the sooner we all vaccinate the better; I hope we get to know the health workers and our grandparents very soon and then get to school, starting with fragile teachers and those who have an older age to get to the younger ones ”.
