From April, students in Singapore's primary and secondary schools as well as junior colleges and centralised institutes will have one day of home-based learning a week, amid enhanced measures to stem the spread of COVID-19. "Work and school go hand in hand. Once you close school, work cannot carry on. And if you're a frontline worker now ... I think (school closures) will weaken other parts of the system as well": Education Minister Ong Ye Kung told reporters.
