Students will return to schools next semester and the Ministry is taking the latest developments of the COVID-19 situation into consideration to plan accordingly, said the Minister of Education Tayseer Al-Nuaimi Tuesday.
"We seek to instill self-learning skills among students," said Nuaimi. He called on parents to allow their children to sit for school exams on the online education platform on their own. He stressed that what is important is whether or not the student has mastered the skill, not exam results.
The daily attendance of students on the distance learning platform has reached 62 percent. The ministry is working on giving its verdict on distance learning and finding out whether or not it is effective.
