All Pakistan Private School Association (APPSF) on Monday has announced the reopening of schools across the country from August 15.
In a press conference, the association chairperson said that the schools are no longer in a position to bear their expenses and if schools remained closed for more duration they are likely to get closed down, as schools’ administrations are unable to bear expenses any longer including utility bills, employees’ salaries, and rent.
APPSF chairman further added that if the government does not allow them to open the schools, they will stage a protest and start a long march to Islamabad.

“The date given by the government to reopen schools is too late,” the chairperson said, adding that the losses faced by students and teachers were getting worse with each passing day.
