BANGKOK — The Ministry of Education ordered to close 233 private schools in Bangkok on January 23-24 due to air pollution that is blanketing the city for weeks.
According to Prasert Bunruang, Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Education, the move to close the private schools was due to dust particles. The unhealthy air quality covering Bangkok can affect the students’ health, he said.
Mr. Prasert also said that if any school has a reason to close for 7 days, the school must report to the Office of the Private Education Commission (OPEC) for consideration.
