DepEd: No class suspension despite weeklong transport strike


MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) on Friday said it would not suspend classes next week despite the expected transport strike.

Instead, DepEd spokesman Michael Poa said that students should be allowed to use alternative modes, including online classes and modules.


“On the part of DepEd, there will be no suspension of classes,” he said in a statement.


“Those who will not be able to attend in-person classes should be allowed to continue learning through Alternative Delivery Modes (ADM),” Poa added.

Transport groups earlier announced their plan to stage a weeklong transport strike in protest of the impending jeepney phaseout in line with the government’s modernization programs.

Some schools have already announced the class suspension, while others will shift to online classes during the transport strike beginning on March 6.
