UNESCO ambassador in Cameroon says if Strike persists till next week, school year in Cameroon will be cancelled!
UNESCO(United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) Ambassador in Cameroon, Mr Paul Ombiono, was interviewed on CRTV where he declared that according to UNESCO, an academic year comprises of 900 hours, and that if students don't meet up with at least 60% of those 900 hours, that academic year will be cancelled ALL over that particular country.
In the case of Cameroon, due to the Strike in West/southern Cameroon, there has been no school for over 5 weeks so far, next week would make it 6 weeks, and after that UNESCO would have no option but to cancel the Academic year in Cameroon, meaning no certificate issued this year in Cameroon will be valid! In the WHOLE of Cameroon, not only Southern/West Cameroon.
One of the journalists asked if it was possible for the holidays to be used for school, so that students in Southern Cameroon could catch up, he said that was possible. See the video below:
