DepEd officials to talk about school opening

Officials and regional directors of the Department of Education (DepEd) will meet this Friday, August 14 regarding calls to delay the opening of classes on August 24, according to Education Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio.

“Nakikinig naman po tayo sa mga panawagan kaya nga po mamayang hapon magkakaroon din po kami ng pangalawang meeting namin with regional directors at palagay ko po ay pag-uusapan talaga kung gaano kahanda at paano sasagutin ang mga panawagan na iyan,” San Antonio said in an interview.

“‘Yung huling pulong namin noong Lunes, Agosto 24 pa rin po ang petsa pero dahil nga po may mga panawagan muli, nagtawag po ng pagpupulong si Secretary [Leonor Briones] at ang alam ko po ito ulit ang pag-uusapan, kung paano ito bibigyan ng kasagutan,” he added.

It can be recalled that yesterday, August 13, at the virtual briefing, Briones insisted that the opening of the class will continue on August 24.

“Tuloy pa rin. Tuloy na tuloy talaga on August 24 ang opening of classes,” she stated.

San Antonio stressed that the final decision depends on Secretary Briones and President Rodrigo Duterte.
