The Minister of Secondary Education, Nalova Lyonga, has said they are intensifying efforts to see that the two education subsystems in Cameroon have equal strength.
She made the disclosure during a ceremony at the distance learning center in Yaounde, while closing a special holiday programme called “Healthy Holidays” aimed at occupying and educating young people.
While laying emphasis on the need for a balance in the two education subsystems in Cameroon, Minister Nalova painted a picture of how the 2021/2022 academic year would look like “we are going to continue with the protocols for the anti-covid, as everyone knows.
“The digitalization programme is going to continue, by digitalization, we are going to make everything through machines” she said before reiterating her point about the two subsystems “there will be a modification of the curricula. The aim is that all the subjects of the two subsystems should be of equal strength. Particularly in Mathematics, Technical subjects and Vocational subjects, all those must be equal. There is no reason why one should be stronger than the other” Secondary Education Minister, Nalova Lyonga.
The 2021/2022 academic year has already been set in motion as the administration of several schools commenced with activities on Monday 30 August. Lessons will begin on Monday, September 6.
