“On average, a school operates 200 days a year. But this year it was active for about 150 days. It has been further reduced to 130 days in the Western Province”.

One of the obstacles to filling this gap with online education according to the minister was the lack of internet facilities in all parts of the island.

“Accordingly, discussions were held taking into consideration all aspects and the above decisions were reached,” he added.
