Schools: to open or not to open?

Posted: Friday, October 16, 2020. 11:31 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Government continues to eye warily the issue of returning to in-class learning.

Distance learning has been underway since September for tertiary and primary schools and October for high schools.

While the division of the distance learning burden is along classes and socio-economic lines, opposition to an in-person return may be led by membership of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU), the Prime Minister observes.

BNTU National President Elena Smith had written to the NOC to ask that teachers be restricted in attending schools where they could be exposed to COVID-19.

He expects that the NOC will agree and thus delay reopening schools in person for a longer while.
