The organizations Science in the Crisis and Parents for Safe Education have opposed the education ministry's decision to resume in-person training for children up to 4th grade in schools and kindergartens on Monday. 

"Such a decision in the conditions of the epidemic situation puts at great risk the lives and health of a large part of the citizens," they wrote in an open letter to the Minister of Health and Education. 
According to both organizations, it is not true that children do not have a major contribution to the spread of Covid-19 and that the opening of schools does not pose a danger. These allegations can easily be refuted by the information accumulated so far, the letter reads.
