DepEd to review time allotment for face-to-face classes
The Department of Education (DepEd) said that they will review the time allotted for face-to-face classes as teachers said that it was not enough to maximize.
“Based on our feedback from the teachers and the schools—because we have a monitoring and evaluation tool reporting every week—one observation they have is that the time that we allotted for the face-to-face classes is just too short to maximize,” he said.
“This is something that we will review, with respect to the time allotment, with our counterparts in the DOH (Department of Health). This will be one of our agenda,” the undersecretary added.
Malaluan mentioned another issue that the DepEd is facing, which is the simultaneous conduct of face-to-face classes and distance learning.
“One other concern is that, now, the teachers have to deal with the face-to-face and the distance learning all at the same time,” he said.
“Although, most of our teachers and the students and parents welcome this, there are also certain adjustments that have to be made from one, from pure distance learning modality to one that blends it with the physical,” said Malaluan.
