1.Close monitoring inclusive of feedback from teachers.

The ministry has to adopt and develop monitoring and evaluation for measuring the effectiveness and progress of the schooling activities.With reopening of schools it will be important to evaluate the situation and adapt necessary rules.They should be inclusive of the roles of each stake holder in the education sector to come up with a favourable and quality learning environment.

Due to the covid 19 crisis most of the economies are failing.For education to continue well the government will be required to invest a lot in the education support staff in ways such as maintaining the salaries , providing essential training.Policies like increasing of teaching hours and recruitment of untrained teachers should be resisted with private schools maintaining their usual pay for the teachers.

This will be necessary since people will be in fear of contraction of the disease.Teachers are at great risk of facing absenteeism with parents not wanting to risk their children lives.Teachers are also at stake since they may decide to quit their jobs not wanting to risk their health

All in all, the partakers in education should give teachers the support they need if need be for re-opening of schools.
