UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) Releases New Statement Concerning Academic Year in Cameroon

The UNESCO National commission in Cameroon released a new statement on February 24th 2017, saying that no blank school year has been declared in Cameroon and teachers and students should go on with their curriculum as scheduled for the Academic year 2016/2017.

See statement below:


Meanwhile, in January 2017, 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 10 weeks so far, meanwhile UNESCO cancels the Academic year if students do not attend classes for 6 weeks.

Going by what the UNESCO ambassador said in that interview, no certificate issued this year in Cameroon will be valid! In the WHOLE of Cameroon, not only Southern/West Cameroon.
