DSWD – Department of Social Welfare Secretary Erwin Tulfo announced that DSWD will be giving educational assistance to poor students.

The elementary and secondary schools in the Philippines are about to start with a new school year. The academic year 2022-2023 will begin on Monday, August 22, 2022, thus a lot of parents are now out with their kids buying the things they will need for school.

The Department of Education (DepEd) previously announced that blended learning and face-to-face classes may be mixed from August 22 until October 31. The education department mandates full face-to-face classes by November.

Blended learning was adopted amid the COVID-19 pandemic for the safety of the students. The delivery of the lessons and classroom instructions are done through online classes and modules.
