The NGO Human Action for Integrated Development in Senegal (AHDIS) and researchers in education, training and sport from Gaston Berger University (UGB) Call on the Government of Senegal to reconsider its decision to return to the School only the students applying for the public exams on 2 June 2020.
This invitation is mainly motivated by the fact that there is no risk of losing the school year, since the pedagogical program was half done. To avoid a blank year while leaving more than half of the students outside the Physical School is an unacceptable discrimination.
– Considering that no physical or material security could reassure the students and remove them from the fear of being contaminated at any time and in any place;
– Since the teaching-learning activity is not favourable at this time of psychological fragility;
Hoping, with epidemiologists, that the intensity of psychosis will diminish by September,
We ask the Government, to better complete the 2019-2020 school year with all learners and a complete program, to extend it until next November and to suspend the lessons until September.
