#Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands – September 7, 2020 — Public school teachers have been summoned to their classrooms come September 14, when full-fledged virtual education begins in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Ministry of Education & Youth has determined that having teachers in the classroom, with students joining them online, is the best to way guarantee a quality learning experience.

Wesley Clerveaux, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry today confirmed to Magnetic Media that all government schools will require teaching staff to take up their teaching post at their respective campuses. 


On a case by case basis, it will be determined if educators with underlying health conditions could be exempt from this newest decision.

Teaching from at homes, is rife with potential pitfalls explained Clerveaux; not least among them, unreliable internet service.

The Ministry of Education is recommending that private schools adopt the same approach.
