Education officials authorise return of classes under ‘traffic light’ scheme

January 26, 2021

Original Article:

The Federal Education Council has authorised the re-opening of classrooms in educational institutions, subject to the discretion of each district, Education Minister Nicolás Trotta confirmed on Thursday.

The return of face-to-face teaching will be based on a system of epidemiological “traffic lights” measuring risk whereby only a green light can permit schools to reopen, the minister announced.

The council’s approval of the measure was unanimous, Trotta told the press following a videoconference meeting with his provincial colleagues nationwide. 

Effectively, the decision means that the national government will no longer have the last word in authorising the protocols permitting schoolchildren to return to classrooms. That responsibility now lies with each district, subject to the “traffic lights” scheme approved on Thursday by the federal council.
