SENATOR Christopher ‘Bong’ Go reiterated calls on the Department of Education and other concerned authorities to exert all efforts possible in improving further the blended learning system while face-to-face classes remain prohibited.
Go stressed the education of the students cannot be put on a standstill.
“Kawawa naman po mga bata, napi-pressure po ‘yung bata, malaking epekto po iyon sa kanila. Ang importante po, walang masayang na taon. Ang importante po matuto sila,” said Go.
He appealed to education authorities and those in government media to utilize various approaches and tools in order to lessen the burden of particularly poorer students who cannot afford to buy computer gadgets, and those residing in remote places without or with limited internet connectivity as online class is one of the approaches under the blended learning set-up.
Earlier, Go remains firm on his stand that face-to-face classes in schools must be put on hold first until more Filipinos are vaccinated to reach population protection and eventually herd immunity, amid the ongoing Covid19 pandemic.
“Ang importante sa amin ni Pangulo ay ang buhay ng bawat Filipino,” he said.
Go further stressed government should first focus on the vaccination program before considering the resumption of face-to-face classes as the next school year approaches.
The senator added amid the ongoing pandemic, he continues to favor the implementation of blended learning, emphasizing that government cannot afford to put children’s health in danger if in case a Covid19 outbreak happens in schools.
He also mentioned government does not want to waste the progress it has made in the fight against Covid19 by taking the risk of conducting face-to-face classes this early.
