0

MIDSAYAP, North Cotabato: A week after heavily armed men held hostage and used public school teachers here as human shields, the Department of Education in North Cotabato reopened the Malingao Elementary School with emotions pouring, an education official said Thursday. “It was a very emotional thing, I can’t help but shed tears with the teachers and the parents,” North Cotabato Schools Division acting Superintendent Romelito Flores said. “Not all teachers have returned and re-start classes at Malingao,” he said after escorting five of the 13 teachers who were “told to stay put” in their school here as government forces and Moro bandits traded bullets on September 23.
