UK PM Johnson "really pleased" with work done to reopen schools

Tue, 25th Aug 2020 13:14

LONDON, Aug 25 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson said on Tuesday he was "really pleased" by the work
teachers had done to get ready to reopen from next week, a test
of his government after it failed to return all children to
schools earlier this year.

Johnson, whose Conservative government has come under fire
for how it has tackled education during the coronavirus crisis,
said it was "crucial" for all children to return to school and
that he would look at medical evidence to see whether he should
change the government's advice on wearing face-coverings.

"I'm really pleased by the work that teachers, schools,
parents, pupils have done to get ready," he said on a visit in
southwest England.
