Schools return from Thursday. | Luca Piergiovanni
The Balearic education minister, Martí March, has called on families and the whole educational community to collaborate with the return to school. Speaking on Wednesday, March said that he understood parents' anxieties but stressed that schools are safer than other environments. "We do not want to delay the school year. We have made the decision with the health ministry. Delaying school would not be a solution." He noted that all other regions, with the exception of Asturias, are going ahead with the return to school.
