Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. called on the Department of Education (DepEd) to ensure all teachers have internet allowance once distance learning is in full swing.
The Ilocano politiko made the appeal in a Facebook post on Wednesday, June 24.
“Sa agong sistema ng edukasyon, kailangan ng guro at ng mag-aaral ng Internet. Dapat bigyan ang mga paaralan ng libre na Internet bilang bahagi na ng edukasyon sa new normal,” Marcos said.
DepEd has decided to follow a distance learning scheme for the upcoming school year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
