Some colleges are at risk of closure due to the lack of enrollees amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said.

On Wednesday, CHED Chairman Prospero de Vera disclosed that parents are worried about the safety of their children at school.

“Mayroon na pong ilang eskuwelahan na nagsabi sa CHED na magsasara sila dahil ‘yung enrollment ho ay talagang bumaba, natatakot ang mga magulang at estudyante, at mayroon na hong ilan na nag-report sa CHED,” de Vera said during a meeting held at Malacañan Palace Wednesday evening.

“Ang problema ho wala kaming policy sa pagsara kasi itong COVID ay hindi pa nangyari sa matagal na panahon, so we are only crafting it,” he added.

De Vera also sought guidance on how the blended mode of learning could be rendered to areas without internet connection.

“Pero humihingi ho ako ng guidance ‘yung mga private schools in particular at saka local governments kasi hindi ho nila alam ang gagawin lalo sa mga area na wala talagang internet connection.”
