"We cannot afford to close schools for months," Education Minister Krassimir Valchev has told BNR. According to him, schools were targeted as the ideal scapegoat because the second wave of the epidemic coincided with their opening.

The order for the centralized closure of schools was not correct, the Minister added, saying that differentiated decision-making was the more responsible behavior. According to him, more than 1,250 schools have not encountered the coronavirus and according to decisions of the regional and municipal headquarters for combating coronavirus, 40% of students are currently studying in electronic environment.
