(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 16 – Education Minister Patrizio Bianchi
said Tuesday that Italy’s pupils will return to school as soon
as possible, with around eight in 10 currently doing lessons via
distance learning due to COVID-19-linked restrictions imposed by
the government.
    “We’ll have the school back with pupils physically in class in
safety as soon as possible,” Bianchi told RAI television.
    The government has ordered all schools to switch to distance
learning in high-contagion-risk red zones.
    It has also changed the criteria to make it easier for regions
to be classed as red zones.
    This, coupled with the recent surge in infections, mean that
half of the country is current a red zone.
    Furthermore, the government has also given local authorities the
power to close schools in specific areas of high contagion, even
if the region as a whole is not a red zone.
    Bianchi also pledged that this year’s ‘maturità’ high-school
final exams will take place as normal. (ANSA).
