By BBN Staff: The Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) said today that it is grateful for the Government of Belize’s decision to push back the scheduled August 10 reopening of schools, and appealed teachers to take the extra time to prepare.
The union expressed its gratitude to Minister of Education Patrick Faber for the delay and reminded teachers that they are still to report to work.
“Although a date has not yet been set, we want to emplore and encourage our teachers to fully engage in developing the continous learning plans and packages as COVID-19 provides us with no road map to determine if and when it will be safe for teachers and children to return to your classrooms,” the BNTU said.
The union also said that it looks forward to working alongside the Ministry of Education in assessing schools that are behind in their preparations and being a part of the dialogue in ensuring that those schools are prepared for the eventual reopening.
