Face-to-face classes not mandatory, DepEd confirms


The Department of Education in the Philippines confirmed that face-to-face classes are not mandatory and parents who do not want their kids to be physically present in the classrooms may opt to use blended learning.

“Yung mga parents na ayaw face-to-face (classes), may choice naman sila online halimbawa. Kung hindi pwede ang online dahil hindi pwede ang connectivity nandiyan ang telebisyon, nandiyan ang radyo,” DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones said in a statement.

“At kung hindi pa rin ito pwede dahil siguro malayong malayo ang parents or ang lugar ng mga bata e yung sinasabi namin na IBM, it’s better manual. Kaya yung mga sinasabi naming modular system namin gagamitin pa rin yung mga reading materials i-dedeliver sa bahay ng mga bata,” she further added.
