The 2019-2020 academic year will not be canceled. This was disclosed on April 13 by the minister for primary and secondary education, Affoh Atcha Dedji.
The announcement aims at reassuring those concerned by such an eventuality. Let’s recall that all schools have been closed in Togo since March 20th due to the Covid-19.
To continue classes, the ministry of primary and secondary education considers switching to distance and e-learning (TV, radio, and internet).
The government also plans to support around 12,000 teachers from private schools.
Concerning fixed examination dates, the official said: “new dates could not be fixed at the moment.” The same goes for the reopening of schools.
