"Today, elementary and high school students begin their new school cycle, which has all the validity as it will be done with professionalism," AMLO said.
He thanked parents for making it possible to restart classes, teachers for guiding children, and television networks for broadcasting educational content.
Education Minister Esteban Moctezuma explained that classes will be taught through television, which 94 percent of Mexican families have, and through radio for remote communities with translations into 22 indigenous languages.
Some teachers in Mexico had to ride a bike and visit their students to continue classes. Others had the local TV channel or radio broadcast the class for the day.
