Jim Kent asked Delano journalists Jess Bauldry and Duncan Roberts about the coronavirus task forces, the strategy for reopening Luxembourg schools and the new BnL chief during “The Jim Kent Show on 100,7 with Delano” on Thursday. Here’s what they discussed:
Government task forces: On Tuesday, the government published the names of the individuals on its various coronavirus task forces. But there was some controversy surrounding the earlier reluctance to announce their names. Duncan Roberts gave his verdict on the government’s communication strategy so far.
School reopenings: The first phase of school reopenings starts next Monday with final year students, followed on 18 May by the remainder of secondary and 25 May with primary and crèches. Jess Bauldry outlined the remaining questions about the decision, despite the education minister stressing that the strategy was not ecomically motivated, extraordinary parental leave will be discontinued from 15 May. How does that leave parents caring for children on the alternate weeks they are expected to study at home? And why not just make attendance optional? These and more questions abound.
BnL appointment: Last Friday the culture ministry announced that Joanne Goebbels would be the new head of the national library. But the appointment sparked suggestions of nepotism on social media and in the press as Goebbels is known to be close to cultural minister Sam Tanson (déi gréng).
