BEIJING, June 1 (Xinhua) -- June 1 marks International Children's Day. As countries around the globe start to gradually reopen, children are heading back to school. But in some countries, school is still out for most children. However, even as students may return to classrooms, life won't likely be the same after the pandemic. Social distancing will likely be the new normal for most children.
