MANILA, Philippines — According to Malacanang, the administration is preparing additional instructions on the return…
Marcos is happy to see students return to face-to-face instruction.
After two years of school cancellations owing to the Covid-19 outbreak, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. welcomed students’ return to face-to-face (F2F) lessons, claiming that learning is “more effective” inside classrooms.
After two years of online learning because of the epidemic, Marcos remarked in a statement released on the official Facebook page of the Office of the President, “I welcome the return of our children to full face-to-face lessons.
Learning is “more effective within classrooms where students completely connect with their teachers and fellow students,” he claimed, stating that this has always been his philosophy.
The President also urged educators to enforce minimum public health requirements like mask use, hand washing, and physical segregation.
He continued, “Since the threat of Covid-19 is still in our presence, it is crucial that our teachers and students continue to follow the minimal health measures to guarantee that they are healthy while learning new things.
Marcos also voiced his belief that the children will finally receive the high-quality education they need now that Vice President Sara Duterte is in charge of the Department of Education (DepEd).
Trixie Cruz-Angeles, the press secretary, also wished students a “safe” and “enjoyable” first day of F2F lessons.
Although there aren’t yet full face-to-face lessons, she advised adhering to the teacher’s instructions, particularly those about the Covid-19 safety standards, in a post on her official Facebook page.
On Monday, classes began in person for both private and public institutions. Full implementation followed on November 2.
The academic year 2022–2023 for public schools will last 203 days and start on August 22, 2022, and end on July 7, 2023.
DepEd official Michael Poa previously stated that 29,721 schools will use blended learning while 24,175 schools will adopt five days of in-person instruction.
As vaccination against Covid-19 is not required in the Philippines, he claimed that there is no discrimination between vaccinated and unvaccinated students.
To persuade individuals who are still unvaccinated, the DepEd has teamed up with the Department of Health and local government entities to offer to counsel.
He said that as of right now, 92% of the school’s teaching and non-teaching personnel had received their first doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, while only 19% of the registered children have received their second.
