The Cameroonian government criticizes the option of electronic education in schools after the unprecedented break due to the COVID-19 epidemic, revealed the Minister of Secondary Education, Professor Nalova Lyonga.
Schools have been on a forced hiatus since last Wednesday as part of measures taken by the government to help fight the spread of COVID-19 in Cameroon where at least cases have been recorded so far.
To enforce the measure, the Minister of Secondary Education visited some schools in Yaoundé where she urged school leaders to respect the measures put in place to help fight the epidemic of the virus.
“I’m pretty happy, all the schools are closed. The ones we visited are all closed and the regional delegates have visited their own regions and we have received the same information from them. But I am very happy that the instructions are being followed, ”said Professor Nalova Lyonga.
Reflecting on measures to keep students occupied during this break, she said, e-learning could be an option and the government will seriously consider this measure.
“If it is that we are going to use the electronic means (of learning), that will be decided by the hierarchy. We will and teachers should not think that they are on vacation, no one is on vacation, ”said the Minister of Secondary Education.
She added that they now have the time to transform the lessons into electronic form with the help of teachers to ensure that students get the material and can learn remotely.
