The danger of collapsing in many British schools

The danger of collapsing in many British schools

A few days before the start of the new school year in Britain, rooms and buildings must be closed in dozens of schools due to the risk of collapse. Yesterday, the British Ministry of Education said that educational institutions whose buildings contain a certain type of concrete were affected. Most schools will conduct face-to-face instruction on site where there is no damaged concrete.

However, the “minority” is required to move to temporary housing in whole or in part. From the 1950s to the 1990s, this material was widely used in the construction of schools and colleges.

No action was taken

In 2018, after the authorities identified the potential risk of collapse over time, the ministry alerted schools that measures should be taken to reduce the risk. Work has been done in many schools, but 104 institutions have not taken any action.

Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said: “Nothing is more important than the safety of children and staff in schools and colleges.” “That’s why we are now moving ahead of the new half of the year based on new insights.”

The government has pledged financial support to schools to do the most urgent work. However, trade unions and opposition parties, among others, have criticized the government’s handling of the issue. They accused her of acting too late.
