By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “Making Education Work For Belize’ is more than our Ministry’s slogan; it’s our commitment to all Belizeans,” said the Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Technology (MoECST) Francis Fonseca on Twitter on Monday.

“Happy International Day of Education.

“Access, Equity, and Quality are central to our education agenda. From preschool to university, all our people, wherever they live, whatever their ethnicity, religious reference, political affiliation, gender, or economic status must have access to quality education. Making education work for Belize shall be a national priority for this government,” said Fonseca.

Education must be a priority at any given time but now even more so when so much has been lost over the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But not everything is bad as the pandemic has forced everyone, young and old, to become more up to date with modern technology as the online method is centered around the use of technology which many within the system had rejected prior to the pandemic.

But at this very moment, the International Day of Education comes as several countries around the globe grapple with how to handle the return to school. Many, like Belize, have made several attempts to restart face-to-face education just to take a step back when the numbers of COVID-19 infections rise.

Belize decided to return to in-person schooling but has had to settle for a hybrid form which is a mix of face-to-face and online classes. A number of schools, like Sacred Heart College in Cayo, have gone back to the online method.

One day we’ll see the full return to face-to-face education, but it can no longer be just the old way. Whatever has been learned from the online system cannot just be dumped and forgotten.

So, as we observe the International Day of Education, let’s ensure that, as Minister Fonseca said, “all … must have access to quality education”.
