Addressing Classroom Shortage

The education department is considering different solutions to address this perennial problem, including the construction of high-rise school buildings, as well as school communities outside urban centers

THIS school year, the Department of Education (DepEd) fully implements the K to 12 curriculum, with the kick off of the Senior High School which added two more years – Grades 11 and 12 – to basic education.

Some school buildings for senior high students have yet to be completed, with a waiting time of two or three months. Some teachers hold their classes either in libraries or other structures inside the school premises while waiting for the completion of the school buildings.

The classroom shortage is a problem in a ‘normal’ condition, it would be worse in the disaster areas. Thus, the immediate construction of school buildings is very much needed. Teachers and children in some schools will hold classes under the trees or in any available space, especially the schools which are not recipients of donations of temporary classrooms from international nongovernment organizations.

The true value of education can be summarized in Nelson Mandela’s words, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” In today’s world where democracy and technology have given people the absolute power in nation building, the world needs well-educated masses. And it is always the government’s responsibility to provide its people the kind of education the world deserves.
