On the day of the return to class, after the winter holidays, Minister of Education Adrián Quelca stated that the school calendar is expected to end on December 7th with 200 working days.
Quelca provided the consulted information about the versions that the classes would even be extended until the weekend in order to comply with the calendar.
“You are pure speculation. Of course, recreational spaces have been set up by the Vice Ministry of Regular Education and Alternative Education for the expansion of pedagogical rest, so we plan to complete them on December 7th and complete 200 working days, ”Quelca said.
However, he pointed out that, as in other sectors, the situation is “very flexible”.
He pointed out that there are two options for returning to class starting Monday, which are Distance and Blended. I think it would be inconsistent to give face-to-face classes given the cold front in the country.
Quelca made it clear, however, that politics on this issue is not one of coercion, but rather of conversation. He recalled that it is the responsibility of education and health authorities to protect students and teachers.
