Nawaf Al-Ajarmeh, a secretary-general for Educational Affairs at the Ministry of Education, announced that teaches should attend to public schools across the Kingdom on August 21, which is four days than previously scheduled.

Classes will resume on August 31, when students will be back to school, Ajarmeh added, announcing the ministry’s calendar for the scholastic year 2022–2023.

But Khaberni reported that some teachers said  in voice messages that the sudden change scrambled their summer plans, as the teachers are abroad and not due back in Jordan before August 24. They said that changing their return airplane bookings will cost them hefty penalties.
