While schools across the country are preparing to open online starting this week amid the coronavirus epidemic, younger elementary schoolkids will be offered TV lessons instead.
The Education Ministry said Sunday that first and second graders will be taught through programs provided by the Educational Broadcasting System from April 20. Accompanying workbooks will be mailed to their homes.
After more than a month of closure, schools will start to provide online classes in staggered order -- first for seniors at middle and high schools on Thursday, then grades 4 to 8 and 10 and 11 on April 16 and 3rd graders on April 20.
