1st ARISE Virtual Annual General Membership Meeting Focused On Business Resilience

ARISE Philippines discusses the need to focus on key priority areas in its advocacies on disaster risk reduction in its first virtual Annual General Membership Meeting.

An Education official said Monday the Department of Education (DepEd) is preparing for the limited face-to-face classes in areas with no reported coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections.

“At the moment, there are no face-to-face classes but the DepEd is really preparing for it,” DepEd Undersecretary Tonisito Umali said in a television interview.

Admitting that there are some errors in the self-learning modules (SLMs) distributed to the students early this month, Umali requested understanding from the public over the SLMs, which skipped quality assurance.

“Itatama po natin yan. Tayo ay nagsisikap na maging perpekto ang lahat. Sisikapin po natin kahit hindi perpekto ang ating sitwasyon (We’ll correct the errors. We’re doing our best to make everything perfect. We’ll do everything even if our situation is not perfect),” Umali said.

Despite the few errors spotted on the modules, Umali told parents not to worry because “the 667 million SLMs, in general, had been printed correctly”.

On Oct. 5, public school classes nationwide opened following the DepEd’s Blending Learning Program and about 22.5 million learners in public schools study through modules, radio, television, and the internet. (PNA)
