EDUCATION Minister Nick Kuman says a new education structure has been deferred to next year.
The 2-6-6 structure means a student spends two years in elementary education, six years at the primary level (Grade 1 to 6), and six years in high school(Grade 7 to 12).
It was to have been implemented from this year.
Kuman said they decided to move it to next year because the department wanted to get other basic levels in place before venturing into the next programme.
He said the e-learning for schools and colleges would be postponed as well. The department wants basic processes to be in place before it is implemented. He said e-learning was an education system which did not need classrooms and required a lot of work and capital.
“Part of the reform is the Standards-Based Curriculum and the next part is to rearrange schools,” he said.
He said the department’s priority was to provide schools with classrooms and teachers quarters.
