According to the Vice President and Education Secretary, her most significant accomplishment is the resumption of face-to-face classes. She cited how face-to-face learning has been known to be more beneficial to learners than distance learning.
“Ang pinakamahalaga na masasabi ko na nagawa natin as a country is naibalik natin ‘yung ating in-person classes sa ating mga eskwelahan,” she said.
“Marami ang studies na nagsasabi na mas malaki ang benepisyo para sa isang estudyante kung meron siyang in-person classes. Kaya napakahalaga na nabalik natin ang option na iyon sa ating mga eskwelahan—-ang mag-conduct ng five days in-person classes,” the VP added.
