The Minister of Education, Ligia Deca, appealed to the teaching staff “to help finish this year in good conditions”. According to her, if teachers do not return to classes next week, the Baccalaureate and National Assessment exams will be rescheduled.
“So far we have managed to keep the calendar of national exams under control, the calendar of tests has not been changed. We have extended the period for the conclusion of the averages until June 9, as well as the period of registration for the Baccalaureate. The National Assessment starts on June 19, the Baccalaureate on June 12.
It is very important, in order to stay on this calendar, that teachers return to classrooms next week. If this does not happen, we will have to think about extensions for closing school situations and rescheduling exams”, said Ligia Deca, on Friday, during a press conference.
She appealed to teachers to help ensure that students take their exams on time.
“Given the importance of all students being able to take their exams, we ask the teaching staff to help us finish this year in good conditions. We have 183,000 8th graders and 142,000 12th graders. For these hundreds of thousands of students, we need to go back to school,” Deca emphasized.
