Iran’s Schools Begin to Reopen

On May 16, Iran reopened schools in 130 cities with low infection rates after nearly three months of closure due to COVID-19. Students were required to wear masks and gloves during class. But students were not required to return to school. Parents could choose to continue their children’s lessons at home using the Ministry of Education’s distance-learning application, Shad. Education Minister Mohsen Haji Mirzaee said that teachers would focus on preparing students for end of the year exams, which would begin the following week.
