Morgan: Remedial Strategy For Displaced Students Under Discussion
Published: Dec 4, 2020
Robert Nesta Morgan, the state minister in the Ministry of Education, has said the ministry is currently discussing means to provide a remedial strategy for students who have not been able to adequately engage with the education system due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Morgan was responding on Wednesday to questions concerning whether the school year would be extended to facilitate affected students, during an online Gleaner forum on children’s issues during the pandemic.
“I think we are discussing all possible options as it relates to children who may have been [affected], as a lot of children have not had as extensive an interaction with the formal education system as they usually would, and there is some concern within the sector that some children are going to be left behind. We are currently in discussions with a strategy to offer some sort of remedial intervention for children in the education system to ensure they are not left behind,” said Morgan.
