Students Forced to Breathe Smoggy Air as Lahore Schools Remain Open

Lahore Schools Remain Open

Despite hazardous air quality levels, the caretaker Punjab government has decided to keep schools open. The Air Quality Index (AQI) in Lahore has been hovering at dangerous levels in recent days, with some areas reporting AQI readings of over 500. This means that the air quality is so poor that it poses a serious risk to human health, especially for children and the elderly.

The decision to keep schools open has been met with criticism from parents and environmental experts. They have warned that the smog is putting children’s health at risk and that the government should prioritize the health of its citizens over the economy.

The government has said that it is taking steps to curb smog, such as impounding smoky vehicles and fining industrial polluters. However, these measures have so far failed to have a significant impact on the city’s air quality.

It is unclear how long the government will keep schools open despite the hazardous air quality. Parents are advised to monitor the AQI levels in their area and to keep their children home if the air quality is poor.
