Moscow is to draft university students into primary schools to replace older and vulnerable teachers, as Russia reports record numbers of coronavirus infections but resists a fresh lockdown. Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of the Russian capital, announced on Wednesday that high schools would remain closed next week after an extended autumn holiday, with about half a million students moved to distance learning. But primary schools will reopen, with trainee teachers and recent graduates brought in to run some classes under the “remote supervision” of experienced staff. This would protect older teachers and those suffering from chronic diseases, Sobyanin said.
