Senator seeks more modules for students affected by typhoon

Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian has urged the Department of Education (DepEd) to produce more distance learning modules to help students who were affected by typhoon “Ulysses” cope with their studies despite the difficulty. (JANSEN ROMERO / MANILA BULLETIN FILE PHOTO) Though the situation maybe complicated for some students, Gatchalian said it is imperative for the government to strive to provide for the needs of these students who were forced to leave their homes abruptly as their homes were inundated during the typhoon. “’Yung mga pamilyang lumikas ay naiwan at hindi napo nadala ‘yung mga modules na ito. Malaking problema po para sa pamilya dahil itong modules na ito ay naka disenyo para makapag-aral po ng sarili ang mga bata (Many families who were forced to evacuate were unable to bring these modules. It’s going to be a big problem for the families since these modules are designed to enable these students to study by themselves),” said Gatchalian in a “Laging Handa” public briefing. “Kaya nakikita ko dito, una, magbigay ulit tayo ng mas maraming modules pa at mag imprinta at siguraduhin na tuloy-tuloy ang pagdi-distribute ng mga modules na ito sa mga estudyante (That’s why I believe, first, we should print and distribute more modules, and make sure that we will consistently be distributing these materials to the students),” said the senator who chairs the Senate Committee on Basic Education, Arts, and Culture. Gatchalian also reiterated the need for local government units (LGUs) to study the feasibility of allowing face-to-face learning in “purok” workshops especially in areas where there are no reports of COVID-19 transmission. He said allowing limited face-to-face learning while practicing social distancing may help students cope with their studies. “Eto, mga maliliit na workshops sa mga purok-purok at pupunta ang mga guro dun para magturo sa limitadong bilang ng mga estudyante (Teachers would be allowed to go in these small workshops in a certain locality to teach a limited number of students),” he said. “Napakahirap po sa isang bata na turuan kung walang modules at ‘yung ibang mga magulang natin, inaatupag din ‘yung kanilang kaligtasan (it’s difficult to teach a student without any modules, while some parents are concerned over their safety),” he said. “Kaya mas mahalaga po na magkaroon muna ng interaskyon sa pagitan n gating mga estudyante at sa ating mga guro (That’s why it’s more important for our students and teachers to have interaction),” the lawmaker said......»»
