Vice President Leni Robredo is pushing for limited face-to-face classes in areas with no community transmission of COVID-19 to give these children a chance to have uninterrupted education amid the pandemic.

Maraming mga lugar na coastal, maraming mga lugar na bukid na wala naman doong community transmission. Kung ipipilit mo iyong modular, baka nasasakripisyo natin iyong uri ng edukasyon na nakukuha ng mga learners,” Robredo said in an interview.

[There are many coastal and farm areas that have no community transmission. If you insist on the modular (system), the quality of education learners would receive might be compromised.]

The Vice President said her office would release a list of areas with zero community transmission where small-scale classes can be held.

“Huwag i-limit sa blended learning lahat, kasi iyong sinasabi ko nga (We should not limit everything to blended learning because as I said), in communities where there is zero community transmission, baka naman pwedeng magkaroon na ng face-to-face (maybe there could be face-to-face classes),” she said.

President Rodrigo Duterte has banned face-to-face classes in the whole country until a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available.
