It's about time.... Schools To begin Re-Opening In Stages

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Only 15 students to a class. Is that going to be enough to be viable or will we expect school fees to double to compensate.

It would be interesting to see if those schools with poor facilities come under pressure to improve*.
One in particular (and one other that I can't remember the name of) had class sizes of 20+ in what are best described as sweat boxes. Two of those for kindergarten level, with a plethora of fans to keep the air moving, and one small window.

All it would take is to have two classes of 15 or less, and only one teacher, and I can see a creative school admin putting both in the same room- it's been done before when teachers were thin on the ground.

I have told my girls if they don't study hard I will send them to this government free school just around the corner from where they live.
