Blue and White says it’ll demand broader opening of education system

Blue and White says it will demand a broader opening of the education system in light of low morbidity rates.

The party says grades 7-10, in particular, must be allowed greater access to proper classrooms, as they have been the most severely affected by restrictions.

“Agreements must immediately be reached between the Health Ministry and Education Ministry on a plan” for further reopening, the party says in a statement.

The party says it will not reapprove education regulations, which expire on Saturday, without such a plan.
