San Antonio said that as the country is still battling with the pandemic, doubling the time is necessary.

If this proposal will pursue, this will shorten the students’ and teachers’ vacation from 8 to 6 weeks.

“Hindi kailangang gawing mahaba ang pagpapahinga. Ang mga naghahabol, nagdo-double time, so kasama sa magiging sakripisyo nating lahat,” San Antonio said.

“Pero sabi ko nga, hindi pa naman ito final pero iyan ang proposal. Kasi ako personally naniniwala na dapat sa pinakamaagang panahon ay magpasimula ulit tayo sa pagpapatuto sa mga kabataang Pilipino,” he said.

San Antonio added that there is a possible of learning losses during academic breaks, that is why enrichment programs are needed.

“Ang assurance naman natin, hindi naman ito mabigat. Kasi nga maliwanag, bibigyang diin pa rin natin iyong academic ease. Hindi naman completely mabigat na mabigat at reasonable naman iyong mga hinihingi natin sa mga kabataang Pilipino,” he explained.
