The President of the National Council of Students, Rareș Voicu, offered some important clarifications to DC News, after Klaus Iohannis announced the start of the new school year.
The Student Council agrees that the decision to start the new school year for each school will be made at the local level.
“The National Student Council today launched a report on students’ perspectives on the beginning of the school year, and in the recommendation section we even said this: that the decision related to the beginning of the school year for each school should be made at the local level by a local committee,”
Subsequently, the President of the National Council of Students made some clarifications for each scenario
“As for the green scenario, we believe that it is necessary for the authorities to provide protective equipment for students and teachers and everything that means: masks, disinfectants, etc. As well as that part of the school infrastructure: classrooms, learning spaces, bodies for educational units. We believe that is the local authorities’ duty to make available, of course, schools where physical education courses will be held.To ensure that the physical distance between students and between students and teachers is respected, says Rareș Voicu, President of CNE.
As for the yellow script, the President of the National Council of Students, Rareș Voicu, stated that “at the local level, we believe the responsibility also belongs to the authorities. Provide audio-video recording infrastructure for out-of-school courses and the ability to broadcast these class hours live so that they can take place with out-of-school and in-school students. “.
Last but not least, Rareș Voicu pointed out that in the case of the red scenario, we are talking about “the perpetual digitalisation of education, which has somehow gained momentum in recent months. Depending on the number of locations, the specific cases, we believe that a coherent and accurate analysis is required at the local level regarding the need for devices with an Internet connection. And then the government to pay for these devices “
In conclusion, Rareș Voicu urged students not only to respect the protective measures.
“No matter how the courses will resume, which is very, very important and what we have been repeating lately, we urge them to respect the safeguards that the authorities impose, because it is for everyone for us and it is important that we protect each other”, said Rareș Voicu as well.
