In a recent survey made by the Department of Education (DepEd), around 8.8 million parents said they prefer modular learning modality for their children over other options available for the upcoming school year.
The survey was conducted during the remote enrollment period of 45 days, from June 1 to July 15, where parents were asked about their preferred alternative learning mode.
Aside from modular, 3.9 million parents opted for blended learning modality or a combination of two or more alternative learning modalities. 3.8 million parents chose online. 1.4 million says they prefer the use of television. 900 thousand parents chose radio-based instruction while 500 thousand prefer the use of other modalities.
According to DepEd, they expect that the survey will be able to help in the decision-making of the agency on how they implement education this coming school year.
“These data were also used in determining the budget requirements for the LCP,” the agency added.
In the present, 22.3 million students are enrolled for school year 2020-2021 based on a data from DepEd.
