Ministry of Education and Sports has said that it is not planning on a dead year yet, saying especially pupils who were in P1, P2 and P3 learners will be able to move to the next class before the end of the academic year 2020/2021.
Pupils who before lockdown were in P1, P2 and P3 shall be promoted to P2, P3 and P4 in the forthcoming academic year, the Minister of Education has announced.
Due to high public outcry calling upon the government to re-open schools, the Ministry of Education through its Spokesperson Dennis Mugimba said that there is no cause for alarm, as the ministry has a plan and the situation is under control.
On appearing on NBS Morning Breeze Wednesday morning, Mugimba made these remarks.
“Every learner will move to the next class. We are not planning on a dead year, the P1, P2 and P3 shall be promoted to P2, P3 and P4 respectively and Children of 6 years will join P1,” He said.
