Ministry of Education to review the 2019/2020 school calendar

The Ministry of Education issued a release just after four o’clock this evening saying that they are withdrawing the School Calendar 2019/2020 for Government and Grant-Aided Pre and Primary Schools.  According to the Ministry they will be reviewing the document further and a revised edition will be issued in the coming weeks.  (MOE VO)  The calendar was released about two weeks ago and had spurred concerns and protests in various quarters as it had the Christmas vacation for teachers and students being shortened by five days.  BNTU’s President had written to the Chief Education Officer requesting an explanation on the changes and was told that a response would be forthcoming.  That response came today in the form of a press release.///////
