The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, reported in the first week of the 2021-2022 school year, 87% of the school population throughout the country returned to the classrooms:
“This week has been good, we were able to start classes and that makes me very happy (…) We must advance in the educational revolution, if 87% has attended face-to-face class it is a sign of confidence in the Venezuelan educational system, I thank all the teachers and all the families for that trust”, he expressed.
During the presentation of the weekly balance of the fight against Covid, the Head of State reported that the classes will take place until mid-November, on a date that will be announced in the coming days, since the Ministry of Education has to give all schools and high schools to the National Electoral Council (CNE), before November 21 for the mega-elections scheduled for that day:
«After the elections there will be classes until December, close to the holidays”, he said.
Likewise, he reiterated his instruction to the Somos Venezuela (We Are Venezuela) Movement to deploy in the search, house by house, of those children and young people who have dropped out of the educational system due to the pandemic for their effective reincorporation into the school system.
