HINDI umano maaasahan na matuto ang mga estudyante sa distance learning o online classes kaya makabubuti kung huwag na ituloy ang pagsisimula ng klase sa Agosto.
Ayon kay Quezon City Rep. Precious Hipolito Castelo hindi maaasahan ang internet connectivity sa malaking lugar sa bansa.
“It would be hard for children to learn through the virtual classroom. Even we members of the House of Representatives are having difficulty conducting virtual sessions and communicating with each other due to weak Internet and communications signals,” ani Castelo.
Pabor din si Castelo sa panukala ni House Deputy Speaker Aurelio Gonzales na huwag na munang buksan ang klase hangga’t walang bakuna laban sa coronavirus disease 2019.
“Education is important to all of us, but dodging the virus is important as well. Education can wait, but the virus cannot,” ani Castelo.
Mas makabubuti umano kung hintayin na lamang ang bakuna laban sa COVID-19 bago magbukas ang klase.
“I think that we should not hold classes in all schools until the world finds a vaccine against Covid-19 and it is available in our country. We should not expose our children to the virus,” ani Castelo. “We can wait until a vaccine is available or until this crisis is over to send our children back to school. We should play it safe for the sake of our children and even our teachers and other school personnel.”
Mas mahirap din umano ang pagsasagawa ng face-to-face classes dahil sa ipinatutupad na physical distancing.
“Public schools are crowded. There are 40-50 or more students in a small room, and there are two to three class shits in many areas. How could they comply with physical distancing in such a situation?”
