Photo Series: Reopened Schools in Chile Struggle Amid Pandemic

Less than two weeks ago, in cities across the country, schools reopened. Some opened only a few days a week, some allowed all students to return. The reopening of the schools was debated heavily by the Teachers´ College, who argued that especially for schools in lower income neighborhoods coronavirus measures are difficult to follow. On March 11, Health Undersecretary Paula Daza gave an update: since the reopening eleven days ago, 32 schools had closed again because of coronavirus, while ten other schools suspended some classes due to Covid-19. Chile Today visited two schools in La Pintana, one of Chile’s poorest neighborhoods, to see how the schools were doing.
