On Monday, the United Nations Office in Bolivia urged the Andean government to rethink its decision to end the academic year due to the pandemic while making “extreme efforts” to ensure the country’s continuity of education on equal terms .
In addition, the results of a survey published in the past few days via the UNICEF U-Report platform were published. This shows that 62 percent of the respondents “disagree” with the measure at the end of the school year.
In a statement, the UN recalled that “education is a fundamental right” and that despite the conditions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, “urgent action is needed to ensure that” children “have access to education and remain inclusive and learn without any discrimination. “
With this in mind, they realized that the challenges derived from COVID-19 are “undeniable”, but it has focused on “seeing and learning” from other Latin American countries such as Mexico, Peru, Chile, Colombia and Ecuador. “They are trying to continue training face to face with alternative methods. “
