President of the Jamaica Teacher’s Association, Jasford Gabriel, says his cohort is as ready as it will ever be for school, which officially resumed online this morning.
Mr. Gabriel says there’s no manual for teaching in such a global crisis.
The JTA boss was speaking on Nationwide This Morning with Tauna Thomas and Danielle Archer.
He says there are concerns regarding the number of hours students will be required to spend in front of electronic devices for the delivery of lessons.
The JTA President says greater partnership with all stakeholders will be needed to make virtual learning sustainable.
Meanwhile, Interim President of the National Parent-Teacher Association of Jamaica, Mitzi Harris Dillon, says while parents are ready to confront what is facing them, many are finding it difficult to provide the needed supervision for students.
She says plans are being put in place to mobilize community assistance for students.
The Interim National Parent-Teacher Association president also says plans are in the pipeline to help plug gaps in the system.
