BASIC EDUCATION DEPT “MULLING OVER” FULL-TIME TEACHING IDEA

The department said this could happen in the second term due to the severe learning disruptions suffered as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The basic education department said on Sunday that it was considering the possibility of returning all elementary school students to attend daily.

The department said this could happen in the second term due to the severe learning disruptions suffered as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Spokesman Elijah Mhlanga said that a proposal is now being considered by all partners in the education sector.

The Council of Education Ministers is expected to discuss the matter this week.

In the meantime, Mhlanga said that schools will continue with the rotary approach as they are set to reopen tomorrow.

“The Department of Basic Education is ready to welcome students and teachers back to school for the beginning of the second semester. We are happy that things have gone well and that students are returning to school, but at the same time, we want students to continue to comply with current health and safety regulations. “

At the same time, the National Organization of Professional Teachers in South Africa (Naptosa) said it felt that its concerns were not being adequately addressed by the government.

With the second term scheduled to last until July, Naptosa raised concerns about the safety of students and teachers amid fears of a third protectionist wave, which could be exacerbated by the impending winter season.

While the department has assured South Africans that measures have been put in place to address the potential spread of COVID-19 in schools, Basil Manuel, of the union, said schools can afford to be complacent.

“Naptosa’s teachers had a very, very difficult first period and, although they took a short break, they are concerned with the quality of teaching and teaching; especially because of the disruptive nature (of the pandemic), but at the same time they are also concerned with the third wave that is telling us that it is on our doorstep. “
