“The parents have the right to the latter if they have concerns, among they if are still unsure [about safety] or if they feel their children cannot maintain health protocols.”

While Nadiem admitted that parental concerns is a factor in keeping schools from opening for face-to-face classes, it is not the primary reason.
“Many face-to-face classes are still hampered by the lack of a permit from provincial administrations or local Covid-19 branches to open schools,” he said.
“I urge Commission X to persuade provincial administrations nationwide to reopen schools for face-to-face learning. This effort has to start now, as the [school reopening process] such as training, preparation and other stages take time.”
Nadiem hopes that limited face-to-face classes can be developed further in the near future.
"Face-to-face learning is feasible even during a pandemic. Their numbers should grow in the near future, unless there is [a cluster] breaking out in their immediate area or in the school itself,” he said.
