Caretaker Minister of Education Prof. Nikolai Denkov stated, in an interview for BNR, that there can be no in-person school attendance without healthy teachers.

“It is our task to find a balance – maximum in-person school attendance but also healthy teachers,” he stated. In Minister Denkov’s words the reaction of the teachers is part of the reaction of the whole of society which does not “take particularly kindly to vaccination.” During the new school year the teaching guidelines will be different, enabling school headmasters to make decisions depending on the situation. “This does not mean that we are abandoning them to drown in deep water,” Minister Denkov stated.

In his words the academic year will start with in-person attendance provided the country is not in the red zone and all public events are not closed.
