ENRICHMENT CLASSES DURING VACATION: ONLY VOLUNTARY



 The Department of Education released a memorandum on the conduct of remedial and enrichment class for school year 2021-2022.
Learners who received a grade ranging from 75 to 79 shall attend enrichment classes for 15 days only, from Mondays to Fridays, within the identified duration of EOSY classes.
The Alliance of Concerned Teachers called on the Department of Education to give extra pay or at least service credits to teachers who will handle enrichment classes.
“Our teachers are all for addressing the learning crisis and raising education quality, but this noble cause should not be used as a ticket to violate the labor rights of our teachers.,” Raymond Basilio, the group’s secretary general, said.
However, said enrichment classes remain voluntary as stipulated in the DO no.025 s. 2022.
