Monday, the head of the Epidemic Assessment Committee Saad al-Kharabsheh called on the government to drop the school year for students in Jordan.

On Twitter, he explained that according to the Ministry of Education, approximately 100,000 students did not take part in distance education stressing that this is a good enough reason to drop this school year.

Notably, the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Education for Administrative and Financial Affairs Najwa Qubeilat had previously announced that nearly 100,000 students have not enrolled in the online education platform. She explained that it is due to the lack of equipment and tools needed to participate in distance learning. 

Qubeilat added that this prompted the ministry to open computer labs in schools to enable some students to benefit from the online education services, who would not have been able to otherwise.
