All Bulgarian regions should switch over to distance learning, Dr. Julian Petrov from Education Syndicate with the Confederation of Labor Podkrepa said for BNT. “There will not be a zero academic year over the covonavirus pandemic, but I do not rule out the possibility that students would go to school in the summer”. Dr. Petrov said.

 "Online education can be very successful if organized properly. Parents must engage more to help young pupils. Students who pay attention in class and maintain high level during the in-class learning show high level during distance learning as well", Dr Petrov added.
