The Ministry of Education will be moving ahead next week with at home learning for student across the country, utilizing tv, radio, online and social media.
Education Minister Priya Manickchand today said no date has been set as yet for the reopening of schools as the number of Coronavirus cases in Guyana continues to climb.
She explained that in the coming weeks, students will be able to access school work while at home through a number of platforms as the Education Ministry and Health Officials continue to monitor the situation in relation to the coronavirus.
The Minister explained that no timeline has been set for the conclusion of the at home learning experience but teachers will be trained to ensure they are fully prepared for the new way of teaching.
Manickchand said she knows it is important for children to get face to face learning experiences but with the current situation, the safety of teachers and the students is paramount.
She said she is hoping that family members will be supportive of students and everyone will step in to offer help.
The Government has set aside $300 million to assist in the roll out of the blended learning initiative. The Learning Channel is to be expanded under the current budget and private radio and tv stations are also likely to be brought on board.
