DEPED EXEC GIVES DISTANCE LEARNING ROLLOUT HIGH PASSING MARK
ON A SCALE of 1 to 10, the implementation of distance learning in the country is an “8”, an official of the Department of Education said.
In an interview on Dobol B sa News TV, DepEd Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction Diosdado San Antonio said that the rollout of distance learning should be given more than a passing mark.
“Ang tingin ko po hindi siya bababa ng 8. Hindi po ako naniniwala na dapat pasang-awa lang. Ang tingin ko po mas mataas sa 8 out of 10 ang nangyari,” San Antonio said.
The DepEd official cited teachers’ professionalism as the reason behind the success of distance learning.
“Nakita namin at nakaka-proud po na, kayo mismo kung naglilibot kayo, makikita ninyo po ang mas maraming kasamang guro namin na nagpakita rin ng mataas na antas ng propesyonalidad,” he added.
He also shared that students achieved DepEd’s target performance in distance learning during the first quarter of School Year 2020-2021.
