PETALING JAYA: Schools nationwide will open as usual on Monday (Oct 26) after the haze situation improved, says Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid. 

"School sessions throughout the country will carry on as usual tomorrow (Monday), 26 October 2015. No schools in any state or area will be closed. This is due to the improving Air Pollutant Index (API) and haze situation," the Education Minister said in a Facebook posting Sunday.
