By Zoila Palma: Almost 12 million students in Central America are still out of classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Prensa Latina reports.
According to the data collected by the Central American Integration System (SICA), their council of Education ministers shared that the ongoing situation creates disadvantages for the most vulnerable communities where they are unable to access the internet to do virtual classes.
SICA Education Ministers have since called on member countries to promote dialogue between educators, students, and parents to support the urged reopening of schools at all levels.
UNICEF’s Director for Latin American and the Caribbean, Jean Gough, said that Central America cannot afford to lose a second school year without in-person classes, because each day that schools remain close jeopardizes the education of those who do not have access to the Internet and do not have their parents’ support at home.
UNESCO’s Esther Kuisch said that it is vital to prioritize and protect education in emergency responses from all aspects.
