Vaccination program progress raises hopes for face-to-face classes soon in higher education
With good signs that normalcy will be achieved soon, government must continue pursing efforts to lay the groundwork for the resumption of in-person classes in many parts of the country.
Rizal 2nd District Rep. Fidel Nograles made this call as he expressed confidence that the higher education sector “could achieve normalcy soon” as the government’s COVID-19 vaccination program showed encouraging progress.
Nograles noted that the Commission on Higher Education recently revealed that it is studying the viability of allowing colleges and universities in areas with low Covid-19 cases to conduct face-to-face classes for all degree courses.
“With vaccination for the general population starting in a few days and the relative success of the pilot implementation that the CHED had introduced in January, it’s a safe bet to say we could achieve normalcy soon,” Nograles said.Click here to read more…
