Miguel Albuquerque is expected to renew the current restrictive measures until the 16th of February.
One of these measures will be the continued suspension of face-to-face classes of 3rd cycle and secondary students, and for the time being teaching will remain in a remote format.
While talking to local radio station, JM FM, Francisco Oliveira, the president of the Teachers’ Union of Madeira (SPM), responded by saying that most teachers prefer classroom teaching. “The results are much better, both in terms of teacher involvement and in terms of student achievement. And if there were any doubts to the inefficiency of classroom teaching, they were dispelled during March and June last year.”
Francisco Oliveira further stated that “teachers are under immense pressure as they have to work harder to keep their pupils attention, as students have other things around them which distract them, and as such, teachers are having to resort to new ways of teaching, which is difficult and exhausting!”
