Paano nag-aaral? SWS: Nearly 10M students lack gadgets for distance learning

A survey by the Social Weather Station showed that 42 percent of enrolled students in November do not have an electronic device for distance learning.

This is equivalent to around 9.9 million of the estimated 23.8 million students enrolled when the survey was conducted in November.

Of the 58 percent of students who have gadgets, they either own (27 percent), bought (12 percent), borrowed (10 percent), given (9 percent) or rented (0.3 percent) the device they are using at the time of the survey.

By area, the percentage of students who use devices for distance learning is greatest in Metro Manila (96 percent), compared to Balance Luzon (64%), the Visayas (43%), and Mindanao (41%).

The survey was conducted from November 21-25, 2020 using face-to-face interviews of 1,500 adults (18 years old and above) nationwide. It has sampling error margins of ±2.5 percent for national percentages.

Joel to Covid-19 managers: Put workers on vaccine priority lane

Senator Joel Villanueva on Tuesday pressed for the vaccination of workers as soon as possible, saying it was the only way for the economy to recover.

In an interview with RMN radio station, the chair of the Senate labor committee said he moved for the inclusion of workers in the vaccination program’s “priority lane” because he knew that unless workers were given back their jobs, the economy will have a difficult time recovering.

“We believe that we will be able to recover only if our workers are protected,” Villanueva said.

“Protected workers equals jobs,” he said.

Government data showed that up to 17 million workers lost their jobs at the height of ECQ from March to April.

Villanueva said millions of families suffered economically because of the pandemic. “This is unacceptable,” he said.

He said there was only one thing needed for the country to get back on its feet: “Work, work, work.”

The vaccination program, Villanueva said, has been stripped of obstacles in sourcing and procurement of supplies by the law that Congress passed and which President Duterte signed recently.

“We increased the role of local government units and the private sector,” Villanueva said. “We are removing all excuses from those fond of excuses,” he said.

Palace concerned over reports of private schools asking students to attend photography sesh on campus

By Prince Golez

Malacañang on Tuesday expressed concern over reports that some private schools are asking students to show up in school for graduation pictorial.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the Department of Education (DepEd) will investigate the matter.

“Talagang nakakabahala yung report na ‘yan kasi hindi pa natin pinapayagan lumabas ng bahay ang mga 12 years old. Ito po’y pinarating na namin sa DepEd at sila po’y magiimbestiga na,” Roque said during his televised briefing.

“Kung ito ay papayagan, pero hindi sigurado dahil bawal pa lumabas ang 12 years old, dapat sumunod sa minimum health standards. Hayaan na natin gumalaw ang DepEd, at antayin kung ano ang [kanilang] desisyon,” he added.

The administration’s pandemic task force allows only people aged 15 to 65 years to leave their homes.
