The Government has confirmed that all schools in England will reopen in September this year.
However, the decision to end school closures has sparked concern among pupils, parents and staff over whether certain coronavirus precautions will be possible.
Schools Minister Nick Gibb spoke to BBC Breakfast about the policy, but prompted online outrage as he failed to clearly answer many of the questions.
Steve Hyett tweeted about the interview: “Nick Gibb blustering and not answering questions on BBC Breakfast. How do these people sleep at night? Would it kill them to honest for once?”
Rob was equally unimpressed: “Dear me, Schools Minister Nick Gibb making it up as he goes along re: schools reopening. Pie in the sky.”
One user wrote: “Nick Gibb totally clueless and out of his depth, wittering and babbling around the issues, and ultimately saying nothing.”
Another added: “Nick Gibb, of course, with awful predicability, fails to answer the question.”
