Teachers, students can plan for September start

Teachers, students can plan for September start

The National Recovery Plan has a clear structure that spells out the processes and targets to be achieved for the country to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, an expert said.

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Dr Anuar Ahmad said this included plans for the education system, especially schools, that would allow parents and teachers to make preparations.

Anuar is with UKM’s Centre of Community Education and Wellbeing in the Education Faculty.

Based on details of the four-phase plan, Anuar said schools were expected to continue adopting the home-based learning (PdPR) approach until September.

“According to the announcement (by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin), the social sector will resume only during the implementation of the third phase in early September.

“This means schools (a category) that falls under the social sector will likely resume in stages as early as September.

“This also means that learning in schools will continue to be implemented using PdPR.

“The announcement provides relief to parents, teachers and students, especially for 2021 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia candidates since it will enable them to make changes and preparation.

“Parents can make plans to buy devices and provide a more conducive home learning space for children to learn, and increase the success of its implementation.

“And since the duration of the PdPR is longer, teachers can focus on improving online teaching skills.

“Schools can also be better prepared to provide more PdPR learning materials.

“It will also provide the space and opportunity for the Education Ministry, education departments and district education offices to improve their education infrastructure and facility using DidikTV as well as implement training and PdPR skills courses for teachers online.”

Social activist Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, however, said there should be more in-depth strategies and plans to boost economic recovery.

Lee said people would like to know how they would be helped in the period between now and the end of Phase Three.

“For instance, there is no certainty that we will see the number of infections come down to 500 a day.

“We could not do this over the past six months, and so there is little confidence that we can do that in the next three months,” said Lee, the Alliance for Safe Community chairman.

Lee said while the NRP had the right intentions, he was not convinced it was a comprehensive plan covering all sectors, aspects, regions and expectations of the people.

“It also only addresses issues directly related to Covid-19, but there are many other areas that need the Midas Touch,” he said, emphasising the need to expedite the vaccination drive, which was crucial to reviving the economy. Nst
