Suspension galore

Published

on

For a time, the weather bureau PAGASA was being blamed for getting schoolchildren wet from the rains on their way to school apparently due to inaccurate forecast.

Later, it was the schools’ turn to get the flak for not suspending class on time during stormy weather forcing students who already reached their schools to wade in floodwaters in returning home.

Now, the accountability of failing to suspend class on time during bad weather switched to the mayors as the Department of Interior and Local Government warned it will sanction city executives who are late to declare class suspension when there is a storm signal and put the lives of students at risk from a typhoon and flood.

So, the next time schoolchildren are told that class is suspended due to bad weather when they are already in schools and the roads are already flooded, their mayor will be walking home along with them in knee-deep water to serve his/her own suspension.
