Senator Sherwin Gatchalian wants to ensure that education will not stop despite the threat of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic grappling the country.

The chair of Senate Committee on Basic Education, Culture and Arts emphasized that despite implementation of distance-learning, it should also ensure that Filipino students would not stop studying for an entire year due to constraints.

“We need to protect the children and the parents because the parents have to bring the kids to school,” Gatchalian stated.

“But learning should continue. Maybe in a relaxed form, but learning should continue,” he said.

The Department of Education is currently preparing for the blended learning scheme they proposed. Face-to-face classes are not expected to resume in the Philippines while a COVID-19 vaccine has yet to be made available.
