Jamaica: NO FACE TO FACE – Principals Reject Oct 5 In-Person Classes

School administrators are opposed to face-to-face classes come October 5 even as the education ministry is contemplating whether some institutions could have normal operations amid a deadly wave of COVID-19.

The Fayval Williams-led ministry said on Friday that it was fashioning a vulnerability index to assess school reopening based on geoinformatics, demographics, and health data.

The plan, according to the ministry, would include varied approaches, including face-to-face class engagement and remote learning.

The Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) and the Jamaica Association of Principals of Secondary Schools (JAPSS) have representatives on the newly established e-COVID-19 Task Force examining ways for the education sector to function amid the coronavirus.
