Teachers don’t have to be in school on June 1 - Briones

The Department of Education (DepEd) on Friday, May 22, clarified that no teachers are being forced or required to report physically on June 1, 2020.

DepED Secretary Leonor M. Briones in an interview said that teachers may return to work starting June 1 either “virtually” or “physically.”

“We have already said, even during our virtual press conference that they can report online or physically yet we are receiving complaints like they are being forced, they are risking their lives,” said Briones.

“We never said that physically, never every single one of the 900,000 teachers will be reporting physically. We’ve been repeating that over and over, but it just keeps coming back, still the same reactions,” the secretary added.

The secretary said they already issued a memorandum that teachers are not physically required to go to school on June 1.

In the memo, public school teaching and non-teaching personnel will report either online or physically starting June 1, 2020 to undergo capacity building as preparation for new lessons and probably the new style of learning.
