'No vaccine, no classes' -groups urges DEPeD

National Parents' Teachers' Association - Philippines, is urging the Department of Education to reconsider its decision regarding the opening of classes this year.

They would rather see students stay at home in the meantime until such time there is already a vaccine against COVID-19.

"Around 99 percent ayaw na mag-open ng class this August 24 kasi nga takot. No vaccine, no classes. ani Rodriguez.

“Definitely I will not gamble the lives of my 7 children including myself, sending them physically to school,” ayon naman kay Ike Vega, President ng NPTA- Philippines Olongapo Zambales chapter. 
Last week DepEd allowed a “blended” or distant" learning methods for the next school year.

Doubts have been lingering in parent minds regarding the resumption of classes, which might cause the spike of coronavirus infections among the students.

"Di lahat ng mga magulang capable na magturo. There are parents na 'di makapagbasa,” ani Michael Malana, President of NPTA in Metro Manila. 
Others are opting for tutorials rather than formal school just for this school year.

"Nag-usap kami na di kami mag-e-enroll sa mga school… Ang gagawin ko ay bibili ng mga books at magpapa-tutor, wala namang problem," Jennifer Rosario said, a member of the NPTA. 

 Alliance of Concerned Teachers, raised the issue that classes cannot resume if atleast a mass testing is conducted to ensure everyone’s safety against the coronavirus.

"Kung may isang bata, isang teacher, isang kawani na nagkasakit sa COVID-19 dahil sa ganito, duguan ang kamay ng DepEd," ani Raymond Basilio, ACT Secretary General.
