Prolonging studies from home
Nadiem added that online classes will also be the order of the day for primary and secondary schools. “94 percent of all schools [in Indonesia] are in yellow, orange, and red zones, which are not safe enough for face-to-face learning,” he said.
“Face-to-face learning is approved in the six percent of areas designated as green zones. Even then it will depend on the authorities, parents, and other criteria,” said Nadiem. “But if they changed their designation to yellow zones, those classes will be made online as well.”
Limiting classroom numbers
Nadiem said that classroom number will be tightly controlled. “The classes will be at 50 percent or a third of their normal numbers. In primary or secondary schools, that will be a maximum of 18 students, down from 36 pupils.”
“Preschool and kindergarten will have five students, out of normal levels of 15 and eight respectively. All will be subject to health protocols, social distancing with distances of between 1.5 to three meters, as well as shifts per classroom, .”
Nadiem added that extracurricular activities as well as sports will be curtailed until further notice.
