One of the big changes covid-19 has caused is seen and felt in the education sector. DepEd was hard bent in opening classes in spite of the health threat and parents’ protest. To minimize the perceived health risk, DepEd came up with a different method of delivering instruction sans face-to-face interaction: online teaching-learning. Truth is, this methodology is new to both teachers in public and private schools. Teachers used to actual physical interaction with students will have difficulty switching to this new mode of instruction. Result? Poor quality of instruction. Those enrolled in private schools are not getting their money’s worth inasmuch as school fees remain the same or are secretly increased while students do not get to avail of services they are made to pay for like dental fees, intrams fees, misc., laboratory fees , etc It’s practically a rip-off. Wiser parents have made better decisions by enrolling their kids in public schools or making them do homeschool instead of paying for something that translates to nothing in the end.
