The Department of Education (DepEd) stood firm on its decision to resume classes by August 24 even though President Rodrigo Duterte seemed to be pushing for an indefinite delay in the upcoming school year especially in this time of COVID-19 pandemic.

Cannes Best Actress Awardee Jaclyn Jose and It’s Showtime host Teddy Corpuz expressed their opposition to the DepEd’s decision to resume classes with the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing.

In an Instagram post, Jose voiced out her opinion on why she wouldn’t allow her son and grand child to go back to school.

“If I were to ask, I will not allow school for my apo and my son. Nararamdaman ng dep ed head Briones ang mag ka Covid. I am so sure ninerbios siya at naisip baka ito na ang huli ng buhay niya.” “ a screenshot of a cell phone © Provided by LionhearTV

She also stressed that even her family has a hard time accessing technology such as laptops, phones, and especially internet connection since online learning would be a part of the new normal.

“Gusto niya maramdaman ng mga magulang ang pag labas? D naman lahat ay laptop at wifi. Kami nga na lower middle class panay bunot kabit ng wifi.

“I’d rather have my son for the next months and months than for me to regret na bakit ko sinunod ang DepEd.”

She also called out on one of the alternative ways of learning that was given by Sec. Briones where lessons will be given through television and radio.

“T.V radio? E sarado nga as much as I am sure is very much at their service dapat lahat to accommodate..just saying.”

It’s Showtime host Teddy Corpuz expressed his opposition on his Twitter account, As a father of two children, Teddy can’t help but worry about his kids. He also suggested that there should be a trial period for online learning before enrolling and paying for the children’s tuition fees.

He even jokingly suggested that will teach his children and if there are exams that needs to be taken then they will take it online.

Last Thursday DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones clarified that there would be “no face-to-face classes until safe,” a position she said was consistent with the President’s remarks,

But alternative ways will be used such as online classes, printed modules, and lessons delivered on television and radio.

“We can still provide learning opportunities to our students without requiring them to come to school through blended and distance learning/”

But the government may postpone starting classes on August 24 if certain areas of the country will remain under strict community protocols due to COVID-19.

“If come Aug. 24, there are areas that are still under MECQ or have returned to ECQ, which is possible because social distancing is being disregarded, there might still be no classes.”
