HOUSE OPEN TO MOVE SCHOOL CALENDAR

0

The House of Representatives is open to the suggestion of moving the opening of classes to August or September, Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. said on Monday. Belmonte said the House is “open to listening to the arguments” to examine the benefits and disadvantages of changing the school calendar from June to March to September to May. House Bill 104 filed by Rep. Lani Mercado-Revilla of Cavite seeks to change the opening of classes because of heavy rains and typhoons that usually lash the country from June to September. Once the proposed measure is approved, it will apply to all public and private educational institutions from elementary to tertiary level.
