What does it mean for students to return to school in Bucharest. Next week the incidence should fall below 1%

Students in Bucharest could return to school in the traditional format if the incidence rate of coronavirus drops to less than 1% per thousand inhabitants.

Theoretically, a return of children to class could be discussed next week, and Education experts believe that although there are only two months of school left until the summer break, students could seriously recover from the subject if the school is done in traditional format.

This is especially true in the context in which online education has demonstrated its limitations, rural students being deprived of a quality education.

Teachers: “Schools are ready”

“Schools were prepared even after the pandemic broke out in the beginning. It has been shown that the school is a safe environment, where there are clear rules that have been followed by children, teachers and parents. I lose a lot, school does not only mean that you live in an educational unit, it also means socializing, the child comes into contact with other children, and with teachers “, Marius Nistor, president of the Federation of Trade Unions, explained for Ziare.com Education Spiru Haret.

According to him, the two months of physical school until the summer could help students recover the subject faster than it would in an online system.

“It has been shown that in online education it is difficult to keep children’s attention for a long time. After a certain number of minutes it is a problem to be careful on a certain subject, especially since they are not in an environment where there are certain rules and they have various manifestations. Some cannot be controlled, otherwise you manifest in school, otherwise at home “, added Marius Nistor.

Parents’ Federation: “School is a safe environment”

Parents’ representatives also encourage students to return to school and that it does not seem normal for schools to remain open only for certain categories of students and not for everyone, regardless of the year of study, in the context of the new relaxation measures.

“We said that even when the incidence is up to 1.5 per thousand, not just below 1 per thousand, it would be ideal for all children to go to school, especially since there are currently many in the country. localities where the incidence is close to zero and children can go to school safely “, said for Ziare.com and Gabriel Chicioreanu, the general secretary of the National Federation of Parents’ Associations.

“It is necessary to go through at least a part of the subject in the classroom. In the educational units the social distance is kept, to some extent, and these rules for keeping the pandemic are respected. Yesterday and today, the children went in physical format “to take those national assessment simulations even though they were online. Let the authorities think about what it’s like to take the child to school all of a sudden to take an exam in front of the teacher,” the parents’ representative added.

Online education – a 100% fiasco

And he believes that online education has shown its limits.

“Distance education in rural areas was a fiasco towards 100%. In January-February, half of the schools in the country did not even have tablets. Online education in rural areas was an almost total failure,” Chicioreanu said.

“With sufficient investment from local authorities and the Ministry of Education, it has been shown that the student is safer in school than at home. We hope that the incidence rate will fall below 1, so that we can start school in the traditional format, face to face. Regarding Bucharest, a very good thing is the fact that many have been vaccinated and it is in the first place in the ranking from this perspective “, concluded the trade unionist Marius Nistor.
