It is difficult to prepare for face to face classes in the provinces visited by Typhoon Odette
How are the face to face classes in the provinces visited by typhoon Odette doing? How is their preparation for the face to face classes going on? Well, I am one of the teachers living in one of the province visited by typhoon Odette and I tell you it is very hard for us.
While most schools in the country are preparing for their pilot face to face classes, we still on the ground. Most of our classrooms got destroyed by the typhoon. I can say that it is difficult for us to prepare for the face to face classes in this situation. Face to face classes in the provinces visited by typhoon Odette will take time to pursue.
Here are some of the reasons:
1. Ninety percent (90%) of our classrooms get damaged.
2. Alongside our classrooms were our educational tools and materials destroyed.
3. Our provinces need huge budget for the reconstruction of our classrooms.
4. If we resort to use makeshift classrooms, still we need huge amount for that which we don’t have at present.
5. We are waiting for our division offices to work on the matter.
6. Teachers and students alike are also affected by the typhoon.
7. Even if our division offices wanted to reconstruct so bad they need the go signal from central office.
8. Election is fast approaching so there will be an election ban that will somehow hinder.
9. The provinces need immediate funding if they want to push through with the face to face classes.
10. Internet signals and electricity is still down in some part of the provinces.
With these, it is difficult to have face to face classes in the provinces visited by typhoon Odette. There are still may more factors to consider and many struggles. We will wait for our higher officials to work something on this situation. We are also eager to do what is necessary so we can have the pilot face to face classes. We call the attention of our higher officials for immediate action on this situation. – Clea | Helpline PH
