KUPPET and KNUT Should Come Up with more realistic approaches to curb the spread of Coronavirus when schools open
I was puzzled by some of the prevention measures fronted by teachers’ unions to curb the spread of the Coronavirus once schools reopen.
Although some of them such as banning mass activities such as parades, PE lessons and pastoral programs may work, some proposals are quite impractical and misplaced.
One such proposal is the ban of congregated meals.
I am yet to understand how a school with over 1, 000 learners will manage to serve them while maintaining social distancing.
It is high time the unions sought some advice from the school heads for they do understand how the system works.
In such schools, learners queue, close pressed against each other, anxious about whether their turn will ever come.
Another weird proposal by the teachers’ unions is the restructuring of classes to facilitate social distancing.
This idea is great Mr. Sossion but kindly tell us how.
I wonder how a classroom of approximately 65 students will be restrutured in a few weeks’ time.
This means that the government will have to build an extra class for every stream.
The government’s 100 per cent transition policy is enough to facilitate the spread of the cronavirus.
Our appeal to the government is to reconsider it’s decision
There is no point of rushing to reopen shools. Our learners’ and teachers’ safety matters.
