MANILA, Philippines — Around 3.3 million students have so far enrolled for School Year (SY) 2022-2023 as of July 26, Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte disclosed Tuesday.

In a briefing in Pasay City a day after President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s first State of the Nation Address (Sona), Duterte said the number includes those who enrolled on July 25, the opening of the enrollment period for the upcoming school year.

Duterte earlier ordered that starting November 2, public and private schools all over the country must start conducting full five days of face-to-face classes.
