School Suspension Changes Confuse Parents 教部新規 令學校停.復課日一改再改

According to the new standards, Tainan's Daciao Elementary School was supposed to resume school on the 14th. But the city's Education Bureau continued to suspend classes until the 18th. The changing policy has angered the parents.


Classes at Daciao Elementary School were originally supposed to resume on the 14th. However, the Tainan City Education Bureau suspended the whole school until the 18th. Parents complained about the changing policy.

Parent: “Yes, of course, it's a hassle. Some were already prepared, like the school's teachers.”

Parent: “It's a hassle more or less. But I think there are so many factors to consider. When you feel like it's a hassle, I think it's still best just to follow policy.”

To be honest, I find the policy to be quite a hassle if they let the school continue to close like this. I've already told my company that I can go back to work today. But then in the afternoon, they suddenly said children should continue to stay at home. Five teachers and students at Daciao Elementary School were diagnosed with the virus. According to the previous rules, the school should suspend classes from the 9th to the 18th. Due to new policy standards, the school was to resume earlier on the 14th. However, due to doubts from the community, the Education Bureau took a compromise approach and continued to suspend classes until the 18th. Parents who have difficulties taking leave to take care of their children can still send them to school. This approach takes into account the needs of those with different opinions.

Chen Tsung-yang, Director, Student Affairs, Counseling and School Safety division, Tainan Education Bureau: “Classes will continue to be suspended until April 18. Some parents during this time may need to return to work and are unable to stay at home with the child. They can send their child to school. Our school will also provide lunch for the children, academic study, and guidance.”

The epidemic continues to spread, but to avoid affecting children's right to education, the central government decided to relax school suspension standards. The standards are different in each county and city, which is troubling to parents. 

 

 

 

14日一早原本該是學生上學的日子,但來到大橋國小外頭,卻沒看到有小朋友來上課,原因就是教育局把原本該14日就恢復上課的大橋國小,再度延後到18日上課,政策改來改去,家長也有怨言。

學生家長說:「會啊,怎不會困擾,有的都準備好了,像學校老師都準備好了。」

學生家長表示:「或多或少會困擾,但是我覺得它有很多的考量因素在裡面,如果你覺得無奈還是怎麼樣,我覺得還是照著政策走。」

學生家長也指出:「再讓學校這樣繼續停課,老實說我覺得政策蠻困擾的,已經都跟公司講好說,我們今天可以回去了,結果下午突然就說,小孩要繼續留在家裡。」

大橋國小因有5名師生確診,原停課政策從9日停到18日,但因新政策標準上路,提早到14日,不過因外界有疑慮,教育局採取折衷方式續停到18日,若家長請假照顧小孩有困難,依舊可以送到學校來,可以兼顧不同意見者需求。

南市教育局學輔校安科長陳宗暘表示:「大橋國小停課繼續維持到4月18日,其他在這段時間有些家長可能真的有需要返回工作場域,無法繼續在家陪伴孩子的情況下,可以送到學校來,學校也會提供完善的午餐照顧,及課業學習跟指導。」

疫情不斷延燒,但為了避免影響學童受教權,中央決議放寬停課標準,但各縣市卻停課標準不一,也讓家長傷透腦筋。
