DepEd distribution of modules remains a challenge in NCR
While the Department of Education (DepEd) expressed confidence that it is ready for the class opening on Monday, the distribution of self-learning modules remains a challenge in Metro Manila.
In a press conference to mark its regional school opening kickoff on Friday, DepEd National Capital Region director Malcolm Garma said all of NCR’s 16 schools divisions had already printed their self-learning modules.
Only three of them, however, have achieved 100-percent distribution rate of the self-learning modules.
Garma said a significant number of students, teachers and learners still opted to use printed modules based on their survey, so it will be the default tool for learning delivery in NCR until the second quarter of the school year.
“Come third grading period, we will gradually shift to more digital platforms that do not need so much internet connectivity,” he said.
