The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the learning system. The Department of Education had to make lots of adjustments. They addressed the problem of a lack of laptops for online learning and said that those who do not have laptops need not buy.
Even though there are already learning issues that are being faced by many students, still education is very important that many are trying their best to do what they can or to make sure that things work from their end. Students and schools have already turned to online classes where they have encountered a host of issues with the new setup.
Aside from the learning issues, health issues also abound. A teacher who was preparing for the opening of classes contracted COVID-19.
Lea Salonga also reacted. It is not the first time that Lea Salonga aired her frustration over errors in learning modules. She also previously noted apparent mistakes in what is being taught in the modules.
