While government is hoping to have students in Forms One to Three join their peers in the classroom from January 2022, Education Minister Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly has yet to confirm this. However, she promised that an announcement will be made soon regarding the upcoming academic Term II, which is due to begin on January 3rd.
Speaking to media on Friday outside parliament, Gadsby-Dolly stated that she met with representatives of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA), who provided written recommendations and raised concerns about the operations of Term 2, the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) date and the management of COVID matters at schools.
She assured, “These issues were fully ventilated.”
Gadsby-Dolly said her ministry will now present recommendations for consideration to the Prime Minister, and it is expected that the final decisions regarding the operations of Term 2 2021/22 will be announced shortly.
