The Italian School

School and Education, It is a wrong start of the Italian School?

Face-to-face lessons resumed on the peninsula. But of the 8.3 million students across the Alps who are expected to return to school, only 5 million have so far managed to reach school. Delay due to severity of the new sanitary rules.

The fateful date has finally arrived. Since the beginning of March 2020, with the arrival of the epidemic in Italy, students transiting into the Albinians no longer enter the classroom. The long six-month wait finally ends on September 14, the first day of school.

School vs covid-19

The enthusiasm for this achievement quickly gave way to controversy, confirming the school system's unwillingness to face the health crisis. The lack of preparation is evident in the figures published in La Repubblica newspaper, which shows that of the country's 8.3 million students, only 5 million will actually resume classes.

"Twelve school districts will open today, while seven others have delayed the start of studies: 16 September for Friuli-Venezia Giulia, 22 in Sardinia, and 24 for all southern regions except Sicily," the Romanian newspaper, which continues:

In Sicily, secondary schools have reopened, but not primary schools or colleges, as it will be necessary to wait until September 24th. As for Lazio, 30% of institutions said they were not ready and postponed the start of lessons. "

The reasons for these delays lie in the government's stringent measures on schools, not all of which have been able to reach good status on time. The executive authority, for example, required that seats in classrooms be "one-seat" in order to ensure physical distance. However, not all schools yet have been able to get these new seats, far from that.

Students are "separated" at any cost

Another measure aimed at "separating" young people: creating new classrooms with fewer students. A demand that takes great effort to find new physical places to welcome them. To cover new needs resulting from the proliferation of classes, additional teachers have also been appointed. However, despite the efforts made, not all schools have yet found the necessary spaces to teach or the required number of teachers.

Thus these strict protocols are the cause of delay in some less prepared (less affluent, often) areas. As a result, as La Repubblica put it on its front page on September 14th, the start of the new school year looks like a "road full of pitfalls".
