IPOH, Sept 18 -- All 303 schools in several several districts in Perak which were closed today due to very unhealthy Air Pollutant Index (API) reading will resume classes as normal tomorrow.
Perak education director Dr Mohd Suhaimi Mohamed Ali said all the affected schools in Manjung (102), Hilir Perak (71), Bagan Datuk (67) and Perak Tengah (63) were reopen as the air quality has improved.
