President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. announced on Tuesday that some schools in September could possibly have face-to-face classes before holding 100% onsite learning by November.
The president made the announcement after his administration’s first Cabinet meeting.
“There are some things immediately accessible we can start doing something about it already,” Marcos said in a news briefing after the Cabinet meeting.
“The first thing that is an example of that is Inday Sara’s announcement that we have a plan for full face-to-face by November of this year,” he added.
Vice President Sara Duterte, also known as Inday Sara, is the education secretary.
Marcos said vaccination against COVID-19 and other issues would be raised ahead of the planned face-to-face classes in all elementary and high schools.
According to the Department of Education, there are 38,000 schools that are ready for face-to-face classes when the school year 2022–2023 begins in August.
