In the news, Parents to decide either skip 1 year of school rather to risk the safety of Children.
The Department of Education (DepEd) on Tuesday (May 5), is currently earning vast comments from many parents as it has decided to open the school year 2020-2021 on August 24 amid coronavirus pandemic.
“Ang napili po nating school opening date ay August 24 pero hindi ibig sabihin lahat pisikal na papasok kasi may lockdown tayo. Pwede tayong virtual; physical sa pwede,” said Education Secretary Leonor Briones in a Laging Handa Briefing.
With this, many parents view the decision of the department as inconsiderate for not being mindful of the safety of the students and to those who cannot afford online classes.
“Bakit niyo minamadali ang school opening. Are you sure Madam Secretary na safe ang mga bata at teacher sa time na ‘yan? Hindi po lahat ay may stable internet at computer o gadget sa bahay, please reconsider the situation baka sa pagmamadali mas maraming mapahamak,” a facebook user commented.
If the school year will push through on August, parents are also thinking of not enrolling their children to ensure their safety.
“Sad to say, education is important but for me, life and safety of my children is more important,” another facebook user said.
“My kids will skip their studies this year, their life and safety is important,” one parent added.
