Thai media TNN reported that a decision is expected today that will see Thai schools remain shut for six weeks longer than scheduled.
This will mean parents will need to be looking after their children 24/7 for at least four months since school broke up in late February, early March.
The schools should all be opening in May but the education minister is recommending to the government that they remain shut until July 1st.
Testing for P1, M1 and M4 entrance will take place in June if possible.
Nataphol Teepsuwan said that it was necessary to delay the start of term by at least six weeks due to the current Covid-19 situation.
