  1. ‘… vaccinated and unvaccinated can return to face to face classes.’ Can someone explain this to me. For such a long time, students were deprived of critical learning for due to directives from the ministry of education. Yet now, after wasted sessions, the same thing that was there before, is still the same. So many parents suffered under the fiasco of online learning, obeyed the government’s mandate, did the right thing, now this. Would these unvaccinated students only be rastas and medical exempts? Why is dolly house being played with our children’s lives and education? Laaaawwwd help us!

  2. Seems like a bunch of idiots heading this country and the Ministry of Education. This all feels like 1 step forward and 5 steps backwards. The school year started off with no real plan from the Ministry of Education since they spent the Summer sleeping and not really planning for COVID-19 and education operating as effectively as possible given the extenuating impact of this pandemic. Then vaccines became mandatory…oops well not enough vaccines for the students to all be fully inoculated. Unvaccinated teachers are restricted from the classroom and now both Unvaccinated and vaccinated students can return. This whole mess just feels like a roll in a pig pen. Just discombobulating to teachers, students, parents and de whole ‘contree’!
