MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. In Ukraine’s Donetsk out of 150 secondary schools 50 schools are offering only distance education, the Novorossiya press centre said referring to the city’s head of education department Andrei Udovenko.
“However, all the schools are working,” he said.
The official said “in the current situation, 45% of pupils either receive distance education or have left the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).”
“As for kindergartens, only 27% of the children attend the 181 kindergartens in the city,” he said.
The military actions have damaged 163 educational facilities - including two-thirds of schools and a third of kindergartens, he said.
“Four schools were badly destroyed and as yet it is impossible to reconstruct them; thus the pupils now attend other schools,” the official said.
