In Tokyo, where the state of emergency has been extended, Adachi Ward has resumed school from a temporary closure on the 13th of this month, and all elementary and junior high schools in the 23 wards have started school.



Among them, there are different ways to proceed with the lessons, such as the ward where you can choose between face-to-face lessons and online lessons, and the ward where you can shorten the lessons.

Schools will be reopened in the midst of a state of emergency, and 15 of the 23 wards of Tokyo will be reopened from the 1st of this month. I am advancing the class.



On the other hand, in Adachi Ward, the number of children infected with the new corona increased during the summer vacation, so all elementary schools and junior high schools in the ward will continue to be temporarily closed from the 1st of this month after the summer vacation until the second grade, and the school will resume on the 13th. have become.

In Adachi City, as an infection control measure during this month, each family can choose whether to go to school and participate in face-to-face classes or take classes online at home.

In the 6th grade class where the class started, the tablet terminal was placed in a position where the blackboard could be seen for the children taking the class online, and the teacher occasionally talked to the children who participated from home while proceeding with the class. I did.



Takanobu Hosoyama, Principal of Nagato Elementary School, said, "Since we have secured class time while taking advantage of the lessons learned from last year, we do not think that there will be a burden such as going to school on holidays. I want to do my best while exploring what I can do for that purpose. "

With this, all elementary and junior high schools in the 23 wards have been reopened, but in the 23 wards, Koto Ward started classes online from the 25th of last month after the summer vacation. Came out.

In addition, in the two wards of Nerima and Adachi, the school management is divided according to the ward, such as continuing shortened classes during September or while a state of emergency is declared.

Expert "Reducing the burden on teachers so that they can concentrate on their lessons"

Regarding the fact that each local government responds differently to how to proceed with classes, Professor Hiroyuki Tanaka of Waseda University's Graduate School for Teacher Education, who is familiar with school education, said, "In a situation where infections are suddenly increasing, it is unavoidable that the responses will be different. However, it should not be the same as it is now. Some local governments do not attend online, but as a consideration for children, I would like them to be unified, such as treating them as attendance online. "



On top of that, he said, "Even if it is said that it is okay to go online, there may be some troublesome situations where parents have difficulty taking time off and there is anxiety about infection, unlike when they are closed all at once."



In addition, the school side also pointed out that the burden on teachers would increase if a hybrid system that combines face-to-face and online is introduced, and said, "The government will put desks and chairs so that the burden on teachers can be reduced and they can concentrate on their lessons. It is necessary to back up by hiring people to prevent infection such as disinfecting. "
