The impact of COVID-19 has been felt in all aspects of our lives and the conduct of school programs is no exception.
The year 2019/2020 has been turned upside down !!
Overnight, the courses stopped at the instigation of the government in order to limit contact between people.
The students had to learn to follow the courses remotely, the WhatsApp application has gone from a simple messaging application between friends to a work tool. Students, teachers and even parents have had to get used to checking their emails more regularly. Internet connection has become an imperative for pupils and students.
The direct consequences were the changes to the dates of the official exams. The written examinations of the General Baccalaureate, for example, which usually take place before the second week of June, took place from July 21 to July 24. Who says late passage of the tests says late results and therefore postponed the start of the school year.
The year 2020/2021 will be unprecedented !!
For generations, the start of the school year has been the first Monday in September. Holidays, activities, races are organized according to this date. This year things will not be the same. The start of the school year is scheduled for October 5th. COVID-19 has not stopped spreading across the country, questions are therefore being asked about the atmosphere that will reign from October 5. Will the lessons be resumed entirely in person? Should we give priority to holding courses at the risk of promoting the transmission of the virus? Do the institutions have the necessary resources to provide distance education?
