Education Minister noted that in the next stage, the upper grades were also involved in full-time education: “In total, one million and 300 thousand schoolchildren were involved in visual education. 2 million students and several hundred thousand educators are involved in the teaching process. Educational institutions are considered to be places that can increase infection cases. A risky situation emerged for the education system in Azerbaijan.
