‘2020 School Year Can Run Into 2021 And Start 2021 In 2021 And Complete It In 2021’ – Majongwe

The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) has proposed that the government should consider reopening schools in spring when the country is likely to have gone past the peak of coronavirus infections.

PTUZ Secretary General Raymond Majongwe said another option is to run the 2020 school year into 2021 and start 2021 in 2021 and complete it in 2021 as well. Said Majongwe:

Like we have said the most important time to reconsider reopening is when we have gone past our peak when we have conditions obtaining such that we are in control of the disease but preferably when we get to August, post-August when it is warmer and we want to believe that would be the best time for schools to re-open, this is a sovereign country we can do as we please with our time, we can never say we are losing time.

… The 2020 school year has been problematic across the world, Kenya, for example, has cancelled it, while I’m not proposing that we cancel the whole year, we could actually go back and say we can run our 2020 school year into 2021 and start 2021 in 2021 and complete it in 2021 as well because I want to believe that once we put our modalities in place, we would be able to deal with this particular matter.

This comes after the government on Tuesday announced that the reopening of schools will be deferred beyond 28 July, the date that examination classes – Grade Seven, Form Four and Form Six – were scheduled to resume lessons.
