CALOOCAN CITY, July 3 (PIA) - The provision of self-learning kits to students will be one of the learning modalities that the government will implement amid the public health crisis.

"We will use the combination of different learning modalities including blended learning through online, tv and radio learning, and the delivery of self-learning materials depending on the student's location," Chairman of House Committee on Basic Education and Culture and Pasig City Representative Roman Romulo said in Laging Handa Public Briefing on July 3.

Romulo said, the self-learning materials will be delivered to students who have little to no accessibility to signal, while other learning modalities can be implemented to students with better internet connection.

"Distance learning can be done if the student has a fast internet connectivity, while tv and radio learning can be used to those low internet access," Romulo said.

"We must understand that each learning modality varies on the situation of the students," he said.

Meanwhile, he encouraged private individuals and private corporation to donate materials and equipment to schools in line with Republic Act 8525 or Adopt a School Program.

Under RA 8525, tax deduction incentives will be provided private companies, industries and private individuals who donated assistance to the public schools.

"If the private sector is interested in Adopt a School program, they should follow the guidelines of DepEd to avail the tax deduction," Romulo said.

THe House Committee chair on Basic Education and Culture said there are approximately 28 million students all over the country and about 22 to 23 million are in public schools. (PIA-NCR)
