THE PROVINCIAL government of Biliran will hold remedial classes to address the educational lag in the province and help students who have been struggling in their studies.

“In some cases, there had been a regression of learning and some students are struggling with the return of face-to-face class after two years of distance learning,” Biliran Governor Gerard Roger Espina said.

“In line with this, we will create a program that will conduct remedial lessons to students who are in need to address the educational lag in our province. This is in line with our intention and passion to help the last, the least, and the lost,” he added.

For this program, the provincial government will hire 500 unemployed education graduates to teach in the remedial classes which will last for a month.

A learning recovery program called “building and upgrading learning initiatives and gains” is being implemented in the province.

The program aims to help struggling students across grade levels, special education, indigenous peoples’ education, Madrasah education programs and alternative learning systems improve their literacy and numeracy skills.
