Novel coronavirus pneumonia primary school in Japan novel coronavirus pneumonia conference was held in late February 27th, according to Japanese media reports. Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo asked at the meeting of the new crown pneumonia strategy meeting held in the evening of February 27th.

According to reports, the request has triggered a backlash in Japan, and many schools, teachers and parents have expressed no understanding of the sudden request. The education committees of Kyoto government, Shiga county and Jingdu City intensified their research on the response plan on the evening of the 27th. Among them, the Beijing metropolitan Education Commission decided, after discussion, not to comply with the above requirements, and all schools in the city continued to attend classes on March 2.

On February 28, the Red Star News reporter called the Beijing metropolitan Education Commission to conduct a telephone interview on the reasons why the Commission decided to continue the class on March 2 and the future measures.

It is not an administrative order. It can be executed according to the specific situation

There may be some misunderstanding, Mr. shuigu, media publicity director of the general affairs section of the Beijing metropolitan Education Commission, told Red Star News. All public primary schools, junior high schools and high schools in our city, as well as special support schools, will still be suspended, not from March 2, which Prime Minister Abe asked, but from March 5. That is to say, from March 2 to March 4, all our schools still have normal classes.

Shuigu explained that although the above requirements were made by Prime Minister Abe at the meeting of the response headquarters, but this is not an administrative order, it does not mean that all parts of Japan must strictly follow the time of March 2. Each place can make a judgment according to the actual situation, and then decide the specific time to start the implementation. We finally choose to start the implementation from March 5, with a certain transition period in between.

As for why it is not implemented from March 2, shuigu explained: before implementing the temporary suspension decision, we must fully consider the impact on students and their families. Some of our students come from double working families, and some of them are not free (disabled) students. If we decide to suspend school suddenly, it will cause great trouble to these students and their families. Every school needs time to investigate each students home, ensure their safety, and confirm their family status.

May consider learning from China and developing online video teaching

It is understood that Japanese students have three holidays a year: spring vacation, summer vacation and winter vacation. Spring break is from mid March to early April, about two weeks. In addition, according to Prime Minister Shinzo Abes request to suspend school temporarily for two weeks from March 2, in fact, all public primary schools, junior high schools and senior high schools in Japan will have one month off due to the epidemic.

Abe changed his tune on the House budget and Finance Committee, calling for flexible response from all over the country and schools. According to the production and economic news

When it comes to the teaching arrangement plan during the temporary recess, shuigu said: the school and teachers will definitely give students homework and learning tasks. Although its a suspension, it doesnt mean a complete holiday. Of course, we are also discussing various solutions. We may learn from Chinese schools and carry out online video teaching.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia is strictly enforced in all schools, and schools are required to guide students to wash their hands frequently and place disinfectants in the classroom entrance. In addition, we require both teachers and students to report to the school immediately in case of fever, cough and other symptoms, and the school will take measures to isolate them at home.

Japans Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made changes to the previous requirements at the house Finance Committee on the morning of the 28th, the Sankei Shimbun reported. I just expressed my basic ideas at that time and hoped that all regions and schools would make flexible judgments, he said
