President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the All-Ukrainian Online School project will start across the country on April 6, as part of which 11 classes will be taught remotely for students from 5th to 11th grades, in line with the balanced curriculum of the Ministry of Education and Science.

"Another important point during quarantine is distance education," Zelensky said in a video address. "Our task is to provide each child with free access to knowledge. To this end, on Monday, April 6, the All-Ukrainian Online School project will be launched."

The president says 40 Kyiv teachers will be teaching classes to all Ukrainian students via YouTube, Facebook, and on TV pending quarantine.

"Students will be able to study remotely on Facebook and YouTube. And also, every morning, lessons will be broadcast by Ukrainian TV channels, which gladly joined this important mission. Each class will be assigned one or more television channels. Their list, as well as the weekly schedule, will appear very soon," the president added.

Zelensky also urged parents to follow the news and encourage children to watch.

"Actually, the whole family can check out this educational content. Therefore, let's stay at home. Let's study at home," the president concluded.

As UNIAN reported, last week the government extended the all-Ukrainian quarantine until April 24 and introduced an emergency situation across the country.
