Department of Education Secretary Armin Luistro is against the idea of moving the class opening to September instead of June.
And DepEd Aklan has the same sentiment.
According to Mrs. Floradel Jamera, Secretary to the office of Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Jesse M. Gomez, they have tackled this matter just recently.
Jamera said that Dr. Gomez is not in favor with the said change as no one can really predict what months the typhoons will be sweeping the country.
At the moment, technical groups are looking into typhoon patters and are studying the plan as well as its effect to pupils and students.
Meanwhile, Luistro said that it isn’t time to move the class opening not unless 2,000 or so universities in the country will agree on it.
