    Wait for it … Malacanang could still toss this list in the round file and declare all schools in the NCR closed … just like it did last night.

    In the meantime, thanks to the DepEd for trying to limit the list to those schools which actually warrant being closed. It’s a huge improvement over the blanket closures of Gloria’s years.

    4 p.m.: Mayor Bernabe has just added all schools in Paranaque to the list. Announced it on Facebook!
