School Year 2020-2021 is not wasted
The Department of Education said School Year 2020-2021 is not wasted despite the many challenges amid the pandemic.
Education Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan admitted that the school year was challenging but still overcome through distance learning.
Malaluan also extended his congratulations to parents, teachers and learners for completing the school year.
“Natapos natin despite the many challenges that we had to face, the short period of time that we had to shift into this form of learning. It is a year that was not wasted, as other might have wanted us to really just take a standstill for the last school year. So we congratulate our parents, learners, and teachers,” Malaluan said.
Malaluan said DepEd is also looking for an alternative of printed modules and also a tighter quality assurance of modules.
“We had no choice but to combine learning resources that have gone through the complete quality assurance process and allow also that to be complemented by the learning resources developed at the field unit,” Malaluan added.
Distance learning will still be implemented for the next school year as President Rodrigo Duterte is not yet open for face-to-face classes.
