Is Education taking the backstage with the ever-growing cases of COVID-19 patients? The Department of Education is conducting meetings to sort it out. Here’s the latest.
The government agency is trying to come up with a viable solution for the SY 2020-2021. It’s asking the opinions of education experts and committees. Likewise, parents and even students play important roles while expressing their views on Social Media such as Facebook.
By law, the start of classes must fall between the first Monday of June until August 31. Almost everyone with authority insists that they start classes on August.

With the pandemic getting worse, the government is looking for ways to help the younger generation learn while staying at home. We can expect feedback about the situation in the coming days.

Let’s all work together amid the pandemic. It’s a difficult situation everyone is in these days. But, if everyone cooperates, then we can be safer, especially when we go out of our houses.

It’s not an easy task, but, with God’s grace, and the capabilities of government officials and front-liners, then we might have a shot at this. The availability of a vaccine may be far away. So, what we can do right now is abide by the rules that can keep us safe. We can do this!
