Starting next week, a separate team of experts will reflect on how to address the problems that have arisen in education. That is, to face problems of less knowledge, which students do not acquire as a result of distance learning – indicated in the program “Journalistic Poker” on Telewizja Republika Professor. Przemys Czaw Czarnek, Minister of Education and Science. He also announced that school reforms would be presented to the public in the spring. – At this stage, we are focusing on preparing textbooks for the third and fourth grades. And to review the old programs in terms of the assumptions that are presented here and there – he said.
The prime minister was a guest of editor Thomas Sakowitz, who questioned the extent of the huge loss in students’ knowledge due to restrictions related to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
The losses are undoubtedly large. It is difficult to judge, because it is also city dependent, and internet access is extensive. But it is certain that distance learning, even at the highest level, is not able to replace static learning. We need a society, we need the rhythm of life, the rhythm of the day that was completely disorganized due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, this affects educational outcomes and the psyche of children and adolescents. We’re getting more and more signals related to this. Therefore, as of January 1, the psychological and educational guide is also available online. Not just by phone. We will also extend this fixed help. As for the teaching results, that is the reason for the short course of the matriculation exam, because we realize that they are not able to handle everything anymore, what must be done in school before the exam
– The minister said.
He expressed his hope that the students’ return to school will be relatively soon.
Starting next week, a separate team of experts will look at how to deal with the problems that have arisen in education. That is, to face the problems of less knowledge that students do not acquire as a result of distance learning. Let me remind you that as the governments of the Republic of Poland, as taxpayers, as the governments of the Republic of Poland, we have invested in distance learning, because this is taxpayer money, the government has spent more than a billion zlotys. So it is more effective than March, April or May 2020. At that time, distance learning was just starting. Today, however, it looks very good in many places. I do not estimate percentage – how effective is distance learning. Certainly a lot
As noted by the professor. Czarnek, at the moment his ministry is focusing on preparing textbooks for grades 3 and 4 – To review legacy programs in terms of the assumptions that are reported here and there. So material is loaded in some elements. We focus on really protecting schools from ideology. We focus on the position of educational supervisor in the educational supervision system. We focus on a clear separation between the scope of functions and competencies of the leadership and the Polish state, which in the form of educational aid transfers funds to local governments to reward teachers. All of this is already being developed in parallel. I think the effects of these actions should be known this spring – the politician announced.
