“As parents, it is our responsibility to prepare our children psychologically for school. Schools should also be encouraged to declare the positive cases of COVID-19 for purposes of management and medical support,” Sabiti says
There has been a lot of talk about the psychological state of children and teachers. More concern has been on the students, however. First, because they are young and this is a new experience. It has also made them stay out of school for two years. It’s only normal, that they talk about the psychological state of children.
The former Presidential Press Secretary, who is also a former MP for Amuria County, Onapito Ekomoloit, however, said there is no need to panic.
“We should not go into panic mode. Unless kids are dying in schools, there should be no need to panic because of COVID-19.”
Meanwhile, veteran journalist, John Kakande, said the way government handled the situation disappointed him. He says government was supposed to cease the opportunity to buy off struggling schools and make home public schools.
“COVID-19 presented a huge opportunity for the government to restructure and bring in the public sector as the dominant force in the education sector. I thought the government would have used this opportunity to buy the struggling private schools and turn them into public schools,” Kakande said.
