Portugal remains in a state of emergency, with several restrictions to stop the virus from spreading, including crèches and closed schools. On Saturday, Socialist Leader and Minister of State and Presidency, Mariana Vieira da Silva, confirmed that the missing definition for schools will begin, noting that the government, starting with the Minister of Education, had already expressed this intention. “I wanted to say that I see myself in this problem. It is no coincidence that we have tried to avoid closing schools as much as possible and that the government has also said that it is precisely through schools that the lack of definition will begin again, ”he said.

However, the return will not be made for the time being. “It seems premature to speak for these next fortnight without definition, and particularly in relation to schools,” he said at the end of a Socialist Youth (JS) sponsored forum entitled “Winning the Future – Make Your Voice Heard”. in who participated in a personal capacity.
