The new academic year in Kharkiv will begin remotely.

Mayor Igor Terekhov said this on the air of the national telethon, the press service of the Kharkiv City Council reported on Friday, August 12.

According to him, on September 1, schools will not open for security reasons and training will be held remotely. Teachers are now busy developing an interesting curriculum for primary school students.
 
"The Russian aggressor stole an important day from children and parents, because September 1 remains in memory for life. Nevertheless, we are developing a program to educate children, perhaps in a playful way," Terekhov said.
 
The mayor said that about 7,000 children were enrolled in the first classes of institutions of general secondary education in Kharkiv.

Also, according to him, while Kharkov is under shelling, kindergartens will not be opened in the city.
