Why Universities Should Be Reopened In August While Primary and Secondary To Be Reopened In April (Opinion)

The academic calendar of the country changed with the onset of Covid pandemic in the country. Adjustments were made to the school calendar and the 1st term for the primary and Secondary schools was to begin on April 26

The Covid 19 upsurge of cases in the country however seems to complicate the whole situation of school reopening in the country with the April scheduled date edging by.

Primary and Secondary schools should continue with the scheduled date of reopening and strict adherance to Covid 19 protocols observed. If possible,the government should ensure all learners are vaccinated.

This would ensure that the new academic calendar for primary and secondary Schools remain intact without having to plan for another calendar if the dates were to be pushed ahead.

The first semester for most universities and colleges normally begins in September. Uhuru's March directive to close schools came only a few days before most universities could begin their main examinations.

When the universities are opened in August, the 1 month duration to September is to allow them to administer the examinations before the first semester activities can begin in September.

With this plan,the academic calendar for universities and colleges will remain intact and so does that of primary and secondary schools.
