MANILA, Philippines – Education Secretary Mona Valisno will lead the annual inspection of schools today when around 23 million public and private school children troop back to different learning institutions nationwide.
Valisno, with other school officials, will make the rounds around 8 a.m. at the Nangka Elementary School on Balubad St. in Marikina City.
The officials will then proceed to Don Alejandro Roces Sr. School and Technical High School on Roces Avenue, in Brgy. Obrero, Quezon City, around 9:15 a.m.
The visit to selected schools in Metro Manila is part of the activities for Department of Education’s “Oplan Balik Eskwela” with the theme “Tara Na! Balik Eskwela Na.”
Last week, the DepEd has activated a command center at its main office to receive complaints and queries from parents and guardians regarding the school opening. – By Dennis Carcamo (Philstar News Service, www.philstar.com)
