Mexico City, Mexico — The Ministry of Public Education (SEP) has reported more than 1.6 million students returned to classes Monday. The SEP said the returning students filled seats in 24,406 schools from all levels of education.
The agency indicated that the states that have resumed face-to-face classes include Aguascalientes, Baja California, Chiapas, Mexico City, Coahuila, Durango, Guanajuato, Jalisco, State of Mexico, Morelos, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosí, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Veracruz.
The return to classrooms is completely voluntary and is in a mixed, staggered manner with certain grades attending on certain days. Days when students are not in classrooms, they continue to learn from home.
On Monday, Mexico City was added to the list of states that began its return to the classroom after being at home for more than a year. Students were able to return to school after the education sector was vaccinated and the state achieved a green epidemiological light.
