It enables us to successfully maintain continuity in CS, but the quality of teaching is certainly questionable and that is what we are working on now,” said Krivic.
He added that he is in constant communication with the CS Crisis Staff and the CS Public Health Institute, saying that they expect the first signals from them regarding the closure of schools.
