Students may see a 100% return to in person learning, as the Ministry of Health & Wellness gives the green light for face-to-face learning. 



NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Campuses across the country could see a 100 percent return to in person learning in the coming weeks, as the Ministry of Health and Wellness has finally given the green light for face-to-face learning. 

Even as the current academic year is winding down, Education Minister Glenys Hanna-Martin says the next step is to begin consultation with the unions to get all students back in the classroom as soon as possible.

Noting that some students have faced challenges during the pandemic, including simply finding virtual learning difficult or issues accessing the learning platform, Minister Hanna-Martin says those students will no longer have to suffer. She says she is proud to say that this year, the ministry will celebrate all students, in spite of their academic performances.

Studies have proven a learning gap brought on by the pandemic. Something she says her ministry has been working to close. Hanna-Martin also foreshadowing the announcement of partnership that will soon come.
