Also in Flanders?
In Flanders there is already a lot of discussion about such a grant. But Flemish Education Minister Ben Weyts (N-VA) does not want to know about it. “That is not the case now,” he said to his cabinet. “And that because of the learning gap that still has to be cleared up. When the schools closed a few months ago, many students fell behind. It has not yet been eliminated. So we cannot miss a single school day. ”
Monday evening, the Flemish education world will meet again with the minister. There will be an attempt to review ‘code orange’, so that more students can go to school.
Both Catholic Education Flanders and GO! education of the Flemish Community does not wish to comment on the step of the French Community to extend the autumn holidays until 11 November. They say they will discuss this issue on Monday at the scheduled meeting with Flemish Minister of Education Ben Weyts (N-VA).
Asked by Belga whether this step, intended to combat the spread of coronavirus, also deserves to be followed in Flanders, the spokespersons of both education providers say that they will look at this next Monday at the meeting with Minister Weyts.
