Philippine teachers worry about full return to classroom lessons

ADB and unions seek larger education budget for COVID-19 recovery

MANILA -- The Philippine government's decision to transition public schools back to face-to-face classes in November has been applauded by education specialists, but local teachers have concerns about the lack of preparation.

The Philippines was one of the last countries in the world to reopen schools when it piloted limited in-person schooling in November 2021, according to Unicef. It also had one of the longest breaks from any kind of formal learning in 2020 from March to October.
