The All Pakistan Private Schools and Colleges Association (APPSCA) has announced the reopening of private schools from August 15 across the country rejecting the Federal Government’s decision to reopen them in September.

In a press conference, the association said that students had to go through an educational loss because schools have been shut down for the past six to eight months.

The APPSCA president, Hidayat Khan, added that the virus has slowed down and that cases are also decreasing.


He added that the association had tried to negotiate with the government but they did not listen. Khan warned that if the government does not listen to them, they will march to protest against the government. He also strongly criticised the federal government and called it incompetent.

“We will open schools in line with the SOPs. Madrassas have been opened, and they have even conducted examinations,” he added.
