Tough test ahead as Thailand considers reopening schools


The second semester in Thailand is scheduled to start on November 1. However, whether students’ classes are held online or onsite will depend on what schools and parents say.

“We are not going to force students to return to school,” Education Minister Treenuch Thienthong said. “If parents are worried, students can study from home or opt for other learning modes.”

She also made clear that COVID-19 vaccination would be voluntary for students. In other words, authorities will only give Pfizer jabs to children whose parents are willing to have them vaccinated.
