By BBN Staff: Since March 2020, students in Belize have been engaged in distance learning.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our daily lives, the ministry of Education has established a task force that will look at the guidelines and perhaps a tentative date for the re-opening of face-to-face classes.
President of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU), Elena Smith says that the Education task force is being guided by the Ministry of Health and Wellness.
“ We know that the ministry had put out a press release some time ago and they indicated that it didn’t seem possible for this school year meaning that we are expecting that maybe September which would be the other school year. So if that is the case, then it would be mean that we would be preparing for September. Yes cases are going down but we note that activities are still happening and we see people still gathering at various places, still having social events and while we are happy that cases are going down we have to ensure that we continually maintain the kind of behavior that will keep it that way,” Smith said.
While a set date is not yet announced, Smith says that they are preparing for when that day comes.
