There is no food shortage at SHS – Ministry of Education https://the-education-store.com/there-is-no-food-shortage-at-shs-ministry-of-education/ Wed, 23 Feb 2022 07:25:51 +0000 https://the-education-store.com/there-is-no-food-shortage-at-shs-ministry-of-education/ Education Ministry spokesman Kwasi Kwarteng denied there was a complete food shortage in schools across the country.

Education Ministry spokesman Kwasi Kwarteng denied there was a complete food shortage in schools across the country.

According to him, what is happening in schools across the country is only a problem of supply, but insists that the situation is not as serious as it is made out in the media.

He admitted, however, that some products, especially flour, have been in short supply for some time now, and was quick to mention that the ministry had already started taking action to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express on Tuesday, he said the ministry had yet to receive any official complaint from a school principal about a complete shortage of food.

“As far as we are concerned, we have no official complaints of food shortages. You see, the whole point is about the image you want us to admit and shove down our throats that there is a food shortage.

“I admit there is a challenge as Hanan rightly said, but that challenge does not necessarily mean there is a shortage. He said, for example, you have foodstuffs, about 18 of them, about 17 of them have been provided.

“Again, there’s also this little that you’re supposed to provide, let’s say days’ worth of food that’s supposed to take students through this semester, but in the space of time, currently, you could probably having amounts of food that could take them for two or three weeks.This cannot be called a food shortage.

His comments come following delays in the supply of food to secondary schools across the country.

On Monday, the Ashanti Region Postgraduate Student Representative Council called on the government to timely release food and funds under the free SHS policy.

They observed that recent delays in deliveries to most schools have led to food shortages, hampering school activities.

The late release of funds has led to a shortage of food, affecting the menu of most schools.

Ashanti Regional SRC Chairman Delancy Ama Aya Kye stressed that strict procurement control and supervision will ensure the free SHS policy operates effectively and efficiently.

“There are occasions when the funds for recurrent expenses in our schools have delayed the cessation of extracurricular activities in our schools so much.

“Without funding, crucial activities such as sports, cultural, scientific and mathematical activities. Timely release of funds will be crucial for curricular and extracurricular activities.

“A review of the supply policy to ensure that school leaders can have sufficient resources to support their local needs and supplies with rigorous monitoring,” she said.

Previously, Savelugu SHS students in the North region on Sunday, February 20, protested against the quality of meals offered by the authorities.

The riot started after they accused school authorities of feeding them expired milk and canned fish. The students also said that the meals offered are very small for young adults of their species.

The raging students threw rocks on the roof of the dining hall amid chants of “we won’t eat”.

Responding to these issues, Kwasi Kwarteng noted that supplies are currently being deployed in high schools, thus calling for calm.

“We are leaders; we take responsibility for everything that happens in the schools. Of course, the buffer stock being an agency of the ministry is responsible for facilitating food to schools. As far as the ministry is concerned, we don’t have such records and that’s why we didn’t want to admit it.

“But of course that also does not mean that the concerns that have been raised will not be addressed. For example, when you rightly mentioned Wesley Girls Schools, we will find out and quickly if this is the situation, we will intervene. But I would be very surprised if such a situation exists and that the school management did not let us know about it,” he said.

He added that to avoid the problem of lack of money to pay for the food supply, the ministry is now considering finding other sources of funding for the Buffer Stock Company.

According to him, the Buffer Stock Company, if it were a private organization, would cost several million dollars.

He therefore suggested that at that time, the company must diversify into other sources of funding other than the government.

“And I am aware that the Minister of Education, Dr Osei Adutwum, has also had conversations about an alternative source of funding for the buffer stock as an institution so that when government money comes in, that it delays or comes in as it is supposed to at least increase their efforts. So that conversation is ongoing as well,” he said.

Kwasi Kwarteng assured the parents and guardians of the good welfare of their children in the schools and assured them of the willingness of the ministry to quickly address the issue of food shortages in the schools.

“But let me assure parents that wherever there is a challenge, if we get to know the name of the school we will move in quickly, but I also don’t want parents to be at least scared or are so worried that there is no food in the schools.

“We have about 722 schools and are we very sure that out of those 722 schools there is this dire situation as it is painted, this country would have collapsed,” he said.

“I want to make it absolutely clear, the Department of Education is not taking God out of schools!”

Refuting claims on social media that the government has sought to suppress the general assembly, education director Dr Ramona Archer-Bradshaw strongly argued that the public ‘misunderstands’ the intent behind a circular sent to directors all over the island.

The circular sent to principals on February 15, which went viral on Wednesday February 16, indicated that there would be no school assembly when face-to-face classes resume on February 21. Instead of that, “mindfulness sessions” should be conducted in classrooms.

Speaking to the media this morning at Queen’s College, Dr Archer-Bradshaw explained that ‘mindfulness sessions’ were morning sessions where teachers and principals checked on students’ mental health and preparedness for the new school environment .

“Instead of general prayers, general assembly, we said we will bring the students to class, we will find out how they are, we will interact with them because many of them have suffered loss. We understand that, then we want to We want to guide them accordingly to talk about love, compassion and understanding of the situation.

“So this circular that you see has nothing to do with taking God out of the schools. The principals understood because they were in the meetings before and they understood the context. But you know, sometimes you you can have misunderstandings if the message was not intended for you”, remarked the director of education.

She added that she had received messages asking if the government was planning to implement “this new age movement” of not holding prayer assemblies, and strongly maintained that this was not the aim of the government. Ministry of Education.

“The Ministry of Education is not going in that direction at all,” commented Dr Archer-Bradshaw, adding “that it [this decision] is to be mindful of the situation we find ourselves in, in this COVID-19 pandemic and to have conversations with our students to prepare them to learn in the classroom.”

In a statement, the Ministry of Education said it has hired 81 foreign nationals to teach English in 16 small counties and towns around Taiwan every year since 2004 to create a better English learning environment for children. students.

For the 2022-2023 school year, however, the number of foreign English teachers recruited will increase to 531, and some of them will be assigned to Taiwan’s six largest cities — Taipei, New Taipei, Taoyuan, Taichung. , Tainan and Kaohsiung — said the MOE.

He gave no indication whether the high level of recruitment would continue after the end of the 2022-2023 school year.

The ministry instructed National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) in Taipei and National Sun Yat-sen University in Kaohsiung to set up coordination centers in northern and southern Taiwan to help local governments maximize their English teaching resources.

The two coordination centers will also be responsible for working with universities across Taiwan to set up training programs for teachers and ensure they do a good job, the education ministry said.

Once the application is received, interviews will be held with the most potential candidates, the Ministry of Education said, and hiring will be made until all 531 positions are filled.

The policy to make Taiwan bilingual by 2030 was launched by Vice President Lai Ching-te (賴清德) in 2018 when he was prime minister. In June of the same year, Lai designated the “Bilingual Country 2030” plan as a major national policy.

The National Development Council (NDC), Taiwan’s top economic planning body, said the government’s “Bilingual Nation 2030” policy will help boost the competitiveness of Taiwan’s youth in the global labor market and help them connect to the world.

The Guyana Teachers Union formally asked the Education Ministry on Saturday to close schools for 14 days starting next week Monday due to the upsurge in COVID cases to allow for a careful assessment of the situation.

In a separate letter to teachers, GTU chairman Mark Lyte told them that Monday had been designated a “day of isolation” in which no face-to-face or virtual teaching would take place.

“Teachers will virtually engage learners during these fourteen days as the Department of Education reassesses its face-to-face plan for learners during this pandemic,” the union told the director of the education, Dr. Marcel Hutson in a letter. The union said the shutdown period should be used to address ventilation, water and toilet issues.

A senior education ministry official told Demerara Waves Online News that independent monitoring of complaints and concerns will be carried out.

According to the union, teachers and students should not be in overcrowded schools in order to reduce the current spike in positive COVID cases in Guyana. If face-to-face classes are suspended, GTU said teachers would teach virtually.

The GTU chairman told the education director that so far more than 108 teachers and 51 students have tested positive for the virus, widely suspected of the highly contagious variant of Omicron. The union added that a total of 82 schools have reported positive cases of a teacher, learner or support staff.

Meanwhile, U.S.-based Guyanese doctor Rohan Somar said safe school environments are those where everyone should wear a mask, proper ventilation, adequate distance and good testing ability. He predicted that, based on the current situation, Guyana would soon be a “super hot infection state spreading rapidly in the population”. “You may not be able to physically go to school in person, so what to do if possible – distance learning,” he said during a social media program from The Alliance for the change (AFC). Dr Somar said schools could be disrupted for four to six weeks as teachers and students are infected.

Dr Somar praised the Guyanese government’s vaccination program and the overall response to the virus. “They are doing their best to vaccinate the population and encourage good management and good behavior with the population,” he said.

St Stanislaus College Parents’ Association president Vanessa Persaud said the facility had been closed for 14 days and the whole school would be disinfected. “Cases are increasing at school and parents are worried, students are alarmed and it is really no one’s fault,” she told a GTU meeting. She said after the 14-day shutdown, the school would be open for face-to-face lessons for Grades 10-13 only, while online learning would be offered for Grades 7 through 13. the 9th year until the number of cases has reduced.

Daniel Bogdanovic still works in the Ministry of Education, a few months after the cancellation of a controversial direct order of € 5,900 per month issued by his partner, Minister Justyne Caruana.

The direct order, which involved work that Bogdanovic never actually did, was flagged as a clear “abuse of power” by Caruana. The case is now the subject of a criminal investigation by the police.

Yet Bogdanovic continues in the Ministry of Education. He was first employed as a customer service manager, the highest level of pay he could receive, in the ministry’s private secretariat on December 2, 2020, a few weeks after Caruana’s appointment to the Education.

Bogdanovic was first enrolled in the government’s Community Workers Program in 2017, first working under the Gozo ministry, which was at one time headed by Caruana. He stayed there when she resigned because of her ex-husband Silvio Valletta’s ties to the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia in January. 2020.

Today, informed sources claim that Bogdanovic continues to hold a role in an agency under the Ministry of Education. He is believed to work within the Foundation for the Schools of Tomorrow, but that remains to be confirmed.

Caruana and Bogdanovic continue to be seen together in and around the ministerial building, working on the same floor. They have even accompanied each other on school visits in recent months.

The news of change also recently reported that the couple were spotted together attending a concert at Victoria’s Astra Theater in November. Caruana attended in his official capacity as Minister of Education.

Prime Minister Robert Abela continues to refuse to act, months after the story first came to light.

Bogdanovic did not even draft the said recommendations, the report actually being written by one of Caruana’s consultants, Paul Debattista.

“In fact, there is almost no evidence of Bogdanovic’s involvement,” Hyzler’s report read.

It was first revealed in March that Caruana awarded her boyfriend Bogdanovic a three-month contract worth € 15,000 to visit public schools and draft recommendations on how to improve the capacity of the national sports school to produce elite athletes. The education ministry denied the allegations a month earlier.

Bogdanovic was an elite athlete in his own right, playing for Barnsley, Sheffield United and Blackpool in his prime. However, his contract with the Ministry of Education raised eyebrows given his lack of teaching qualifications and his personal relationship with the minister.

A report from the Standards Commissioner confirmed that Bogdanovic had other functions within the ministry, including technical work, photocopying, taking visitors’ temperatures, etc. He did not mention what his salary was.

It remains to be seen whether action will be taken against Caruana, with the prime minister determined to delay decision making.

Education Minister Justyne Caruana and Prime Minister Robert Abela did not respond to questions sent at the time of publication.

Education stakeholders are still awaiting news from the Ministry of Education on how schools will reopen in January.

In October, Education Minister Nyan Gadsby-Dolly said the ministry was considering returning Form 1 to 3 students to the physical classroom.

In November, she met with stakeholders to discuss the possibility of the return of these students and last week the ministry also met with the TT Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA).

But stakeholders are still waiting for the ministry’s final decision.

On December 2, Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha (SDMS) General Secretary Vijay Maharaj told Newsday they expected a response by the second week of December.

“I hope the minister will not take too long,” Maharaj said in a telephone interview with Newsday on Thursday. “I know the Prime Minister wants to open. He wants to get primary schools out.

“But how do we do it? This is what we are waiting for.”

He said stakeholders, in their meeting with the ministry, made recommendations and faith-based councils appeared to be on the same page as to how things should be implemented.

Maharaj said they hope to have a response by Wednesday before the end of the holidays.

“I think (the covid19 variant) omicron will have a lot to say about what happens in January. All we can do is wait and see. But it has become tedious, because the kids are really starting to feel it. The virus has taken away their future.

“But we have to bite the bullet, because the number (of cases) is increasing.”

Maharaj said he believes schools should reopen and have the capacity to handle more students.

All students in grades 4 through 6 have been in the physical classroom for the first term of the year. In September, only vaccinated students returned, but two weeks later Gadsby-Dolly announced that unvaccinated students may return as well.

“Schools are one of the safest places for kids right now. You go to a store and there’s disinfectant on the wall, but people are still gathered. “

Catholic Education Management Board (CEBM) CEO Sharon Mangroo also told Newsday in a brief interview that the board is awaiting the minister’s response.

“I guess the minister is waiting for the health ministry,” she said, adding that the education ministry is generally guided by what the health ministry has mandated.

She said that for now, the kids are focusing on the upcoming Christmas vacation.

“Teachers are being innovative in celebrating the season,” she said, pointing to a teacher from a rural community who delivered packages to each of her students’ homes so they could all have lunch “together. ” in line.

New Delhi, December 13

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday demanded an apology from the Education Ministry and the CBSE for a “blatantly misogynistic passage” in the English reading and comprehension section of the Council’s exam that is taking place. is being held on Dec. 11, and has called for an investigation to ensure that such “blatant material does not find its way back to the exams.”

Raising the issue in Zero Hour today, Sonia Gandhi called the House’s attention to outrage at the objectionable passages.

“I wish to draw the attention of the House to the nationwide outrage over a shocking and regressive passage in the reading comprehension section of the Grade 10 CBSE exam held on December 11.

“The passage contains atrocious statements,” Sonia said.

The two passages in question read as follows: “The independence of women is the main reason for a wide variety of social and family problems” and “Women have ceased to obey their husbands and this is the main reason for which children and servants are unruly ”.

Noting that the entire passage is riddled with “such bad ideas and that the questions that follow are just as absurd,” said Sonia: “I add my voice to the concerns of students, parents, teachers and teachers. educators and I raise a strong objection to such blatantly misogynistic material that ends up in an important review conducted by the CBSE. “

She said the development extremely poorly reflects the standards of education and testing and runs counter to all the standards and principles of a progressive and self-reliant society.

“I urge the Department of Education and the CBSE to immediately withdraw this issue, apologize and conduct a thorough review of this glaring error to ensure it never happens again.” I also urge the ministry to conduct a review of the gender sensitivity standards of the curriculum. “

Earlier today, Rahul Gandhi said that most of the CBSE articles so far have been too difficult and the comprehension passage in the English newspaper has been downright disgusting.

“The typical RSS-BJP is working to crush the morale and future of the youth. Children, do your best. Hard work pays off. Bigotry doesn’t, ”Rahul tweeted.

The Union of Professional Educators (UPE) on Wednesday launched a new trade dispute with the Education Ministry over what it called “underhanded maneuvers” to discredit the union.

UPE said members following legitimate guidelines have had their personal data shared with third parties without consent.

“The ministry resorted to retaliatory action taken on Tuesday afternoon against our members following legitimate directives that stipulate that these teachers must continue to teach and perform their duties as itinerant teachers / specialist teachers working within the Department of Education and not assume what the Department is calling a “Covid Class”.

He said that after weeks of negotiations over individual member issues, several teachers emailed personal data to the union on a confidential basis.

The union said this happened despite an agreement with Minister Justyne Caruana and other officials copied from the correspondence that the content of the emails should be used only for internal purposes and should not be sent to some thirds.

Unfortunately, UPE said, its members were then contacted by human resources and third parties asking them to attend an urgent meeting on Thursday, December 9.

A senior official of the Ministry of Education and a union leader in a heated exchange

“This shows the underhanded maneuvers that are being carried out to undermine the credibility of the union and how far the ministry will harass and intimidate union members.”

The UPE said it felt the need to register the labor dispute on the basis of harassment in the workplace, going against the code of ethics and violating Chapter 586 of the Labor Protection Act. data.

“The Union will take all necessary measures in accordance with Maltese law to safeguard its interests and those of its members, as well as to bring to justice those who have broken the law and the code of ethics.”

his latest dispute follows the fallout from the teacher shortage that has marred the new school year.

After public schools reopened after the summer break, the Malta Teachers Union (MUT) and UPE called for industrial action to deal with the teacher shortage that has plagued public primary schools.

The government tried to block the action but the court rejected the prohibition injunction filed by the Ministry of Education against the unions. In an executive order, the court said both unions had the right to issue directives to protect the interests of their members.

Although an agreement was subsequently reached between the MUT and the ministry on the deployment of hundreds of itinerant teachers to address the shortage, directives from the UPE are still pending.
