“A total of 97 out of 100 public schools were able to begin the limited in-school classes, which equivalent to 97 percent and that’s remarkable,” Education Secretary Leonor Briones said in a virtual press briefing.

She said so far there were 6,213 learners and 924 teachers who participated in face-to-face classes from 97 schools on November 15.
