The government has instructed all schools and colleges in the country to remain open until 26 April.
"The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted in-person teaching for a long time hampering students' learning activities," reads a notice issued by the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) Monday (28 March).
"In this context, the educational institutions are being requested to continue teaching in the classrooms till 26 April," the notice, signed by education ministry deputy secretary Md Nazrul Islam, read.
Meanwhile, the ministry directed the universities to take necessary actions to continue classes in classrooms as per the decisions of their academic councils and syndicates.
