Bong Go Propose to Move Opening Of Classes To October

BONG GO – Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go proposed to move the opening of classes to October.

The Department of Education (DepEd) moved the opening of classes to August 24 due to the coronavirus pandemic. They have prepared a different type of teaching method.

Amid the pandemic, most students will be attending their classes online instead of having it face to face. During the online senate hearing on Wednesday, DepEd said the printing of modules in 132 of 214 districts is still less than 50%.

In a previous article, Senators Francis Tolentino and Sherwin Gatchalian urged DepEd to postpone the opening of classes to October. They criticized the department for insisting on reopening of classes even in the thick of pandemic. They called for the postponement of classes only in areas under MECQ.

Senator Bong Go recently gave his opinion on class resumption. Based on a report from GMA News, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s former aide said the opening of classes should be rescheduled to October to give teachers, students, education authorities, and learning institutions more time to prepare.

“Umaapela ako sa Executive branch na kung maaari ay i-postpone muna ng ilan pang buwan ang pagbubukas ng klase habang wala pang bakuna sa COVID-19. Huwag nating isugal ang buhay at kaligtasan ng ating mga kabataan,” said Go.

According to the report, Bong Go said the postponement would buy teachers, parents, and students more time to adjust to the “new normal” re-opening of classes amid the pandemic.

“Karamihan sa atin hirap pa mag-transition sa alternative modes tulad ng online transactions at online learning. Ang internet hindi rin reliable, tapos ‘yung offline modes of learning naman pinaghahandaan pa rin…”

“Kung hindi pa handa, huwag nating pilitin.  Magiging kawawa ang mga estudyante, kawawa ang mga teachers. Hirap na po ang mga Pilipino, huwag na nating dagdagan pa ng pressure ang mga bata at mga magulang nila,” he added.
