The government has resolved that school pupils should continue learning and has invited teachers to submit prepared recorded audios and video lessons which can be used during the lockdown period.
Primary and Secondary Education Minister Cain Mathema sent a notice to teachers inviting them to get in touch with ministry officers. The notice read:
