TDC Reaction on Senate Education Committee Inquiry on COVID-19 Impact

“The inquiry proposed by Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian is an appropriate step. We need to know the impact of COVID-19 to education sector so we could properly analyze and take the necessary response. In formulating policies to cope with the ‘new normal’ we have to consider everything, including the socio-economic conditions of our learners and their families. The outcome of this Senate initiative could also guide the DepEd and the IATF when they finally decide on the date of school opening.”
