Distance Education Is The Baby Of The 2020/2021 School Year: This is the key announcement, Prof Nalova Lyonga, Minister of Secondary Education, made to the Education Community during the ceremony marking the solemn pedagogic resumption and the official launch of the 2020/2021 school year.
On the occasion, all top-ranking officials of the Ministry, including the Secretary-General, Prof Fabien Nkot, the Inspector General of Education (IGE), Prof Nsata Awoundja, the Inspector General of Services (IGS), Mr. Akat Fidelis, all Directors, and Regional Delegates gathered around the Minister of Secondary Education at Government Bilingual Technical High School Nkolbisson, on Wednesday, 23 September 2020.
The 2020/2021 school year
As the Education Community braces up for the 2020/2021 school year, the Ministry of Secondary Education had to follow a longstanding tradition which is to provide both the balance sheet of the ending school year and the guidelines for the successful conduct of the upcoming one.
The balance Sheet
As regards the balance sheet of the 2019/2020 school year, Prof Nsata Awoundja, in a keynote presentation, browsed through the ending school year which suffered the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and witnessed an unusual upsurge of violence in schools. Despite this background that could deter the less committed ones, results recorded are praiseworthy.
Pedagogic guidance and follow-up of students, student-teachers, and teachers, as well as the preparation of official exams, were conducted with satisfaction, all but a few hitches and difficulties.
The unexpected shutdown of schools
Notwithstanding the unexpected shutdown of schools on 17 March 2020, as a way to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the insufficiency of logistics and infrastructure, the lack of cooperation from principals of some private schools, and delays in collecting data, the IGE was proud with the results attained.
The overall syllabus coverage
In this light, the overall coverage rate of the official syllabus over the said school year stands at 73%, while the hour coverage rate hovers around 89%, and the unconsolidated success rate is 63.35%. These efforts shall be sustained and improved during the 2020/2021 school year.
Distance Education Applauded
In a protocol-free address, the Minister of Secondary Education hailed the results obtained and acknowledged the Distance Education staff for their commitment to salvaging the ending school year. It was equally an opportunity for Prof Nalova Lyonga to thank the Government and all partners for their unrelenting support to the Ministry.
Distance Education with COVID-19-free campuses
To ensure smooth conduct of the 2020/2021 school year with COVID-19-free campuses, Prof Nalova Lyonga disclosed that schools having at most 50 students per class will proceed with the usual class pattern, whereas schools with huge enrollment and fewer facilities will adopt a system of shifts which shall be complemented by Distance Education.
School Shifts Readjusted
Practically, in these schools, classes will be organized in morning and afternoon shifts with distance teaching sessions in-between. This way, students enrolled in the morning shift will continue receiving teachings away from classes in the afternoon and vice versa.
The fight against coronavirus in school premises
In addition, the fight against coronavirus in school premises will be stepped up sustained by the Clean School vision. This justifies the huge consignment of kits, comprising 6 cartons of face masks and 4 cartons of hand sanitizers handed over to each of the ten Regional Delegates of Secondary Education present at the ceremony.
Thanks to these appropriate measures adopted to cope with the current health crisis, the Ministry of Secondary Education is set for a hitch-free back-to-school to come October 5, 2020. Prof Nalova Lyonga invited all the parents to bring their children to school and gave assurance to the “whole population of Cameroon that Cameroon is ready to welcome our children […] and that we [MINESEC] shall not fail the population of Cameroon.”
