Physical learning remains a mystery to students in non-candidate classes as the government says that schools will remain closed for at least 3 months.
Today, Mary Okwakol, Executive Director of the National Council for Higher Education, wrote a letter urging vice-chancellors and principals not to let students in non-candidate classes return to school.
“The president has guided that all higher learning Education Institutions should continue studying online while using the ODeL system for at least three (3) months.
She also added that the reason for the delay is that the government is finding a lasting solution.
Early this year, the Ministry of Education and Sports inspected schools, recommended their reopening on January 18, and gave two options under which this was possible. The team said that either only pre-candidate classes of Primary 6, Senior 3, and Senior 5 return as the rest wait or to school with the rest of the classes waiting a little longer or have all the classes report back but be divided between studying in sessions on different days in a week.
The inspection team said by this the spread of coronavirus will be controlled since there was an emphasis on spacing during resumption. It should also be noted that some students have already started reporting back to school.
