The revised plan for the start of the school year in Quebec presented yesterday by the Minister of Education, Jean-François Roberge, satisfies several school associations, who believe that the return to class is necessary for the well-being of young people.
According to the Federation of Private Educational Institutions, the government has presented clear guidelines to ensure a successful start to school.
Josée Scalabrini, president of the Federation of Education Unions, agrees. When we compare with what we presented in the spring, we find that there is greater consistency.
The Vice-president of the National Federation of Teachers of Quebec said "the relaxation of certain measures will allow quality teaching".
Sanitary measures such as wearing a mask from grade 5 and on - will ensure a safe and positive return to school, says (AQPDE). "This is consistent with the other measures applying in society, which will facilitate their understanding and adoption."
the Association québécoise de personnel de direction des écoles and The Quebec Association of School Executives (AQCS) is also delighted that Quebec will not apply the concept of a six-student bubble and that an entire class group will be considered as part of the same group. He says this concept would have been too difficult to apply.
