Schools have resumed face-to-face classes and while this represents progress amid the Covid-19 pandemic, it imposes many challenges not only on safety protocols but also on the learning gaps of students.

According to the Department of Education, at least 5.9 million public school students from all grade levels participated in the in-person classes. This accounts for 25.61 percent of the 23, 230, 898 million enrollees in the current academic year.

Concerns about learning gaps have increased for the past two years as students were forced to adapt to online classes.

Concerns about the learning gaps have increased during the last two years as students were forced to immediately adapt to online classes. In an effort to address these issues, the Department of Education introduced its Basic Education Development Plan 2030 last June. The first phase of the program includes addressing access gaps and streamlining different key areas of educational development for students such as reading and numeracy. To accomplish this, students’ optimized access to learning opportunities including exposure to world-class e-learning content, assessments, and pedagogy must be prioritized.

The second phase of BEDP 2030 involves putting various learning advances such as Frontlearners Inc., an e-learning content and teaching solutions provider to use. In its implementation of a free Bridging Program for Math, Science, and English over the academic break, Frontlearners Inc. aims to assist schools and teachers to help students gain the foundational knowledge needed for the next grade levels.

Besides providing efficient e-learning resources, Frontlearners offers teachers direct support in enhancing students’ abilities to meet international standards through technological approaches. This adheres to the government’s long-term plan in providing quality education to Filipino students.
