Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites, says it would have been a bad idea to close an entire school district in order to contain the outbreak of hand-foot-and-mouth disease.
The suggestion came from Opposition Spokesperson on Education, Senator Kamina Johnson-Smith.
Senator Johnson Smith says that strategy was successfully employed by the JLP administration in 20010.
Minister Thwaites explained the justification for closing affected schools.
