KUWAIT CITY, Feb 21: Regarding the current demands to switch the attendance of students in schools during the month of Ramadan to distance education (online learning), educational sources say there is no plan to switch from physical learning to the e-learning system, reports Aljarida daily.
The sources explained that the ministry’s plan regarding the attendance of students during Ramadan was developed on the basis of reducing the number of learning hours for students.
The ministry is in the process of announcing the working hours for the month of Ramadan, during which working hours are usually reduced for all government institutions, based on the circular issued by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) regarding working hours and dates for all institutions. The school hours will be determined during the coming period.
The sources indicated that the timings are expected to start from 9:30 am for all school levels and end at 1:00 pm for kindergarten level, 1:30 pm for primary level, and 2:05 pm for middle and high school levels.
They revealed that the ministry is not convinced of the need to switch to distance learning during the month of Ramadan because there is no necessity or danger for students, especially since the health situation is normal, that would mandate the switch to distance education.
Meanwhile, primary and intermediate schools have set the dates for the third-term exams of the current academic year. The dates are scheduled to be posted on the official social platforms at the beginning of next week after the national holidays.
