A school in Valenzuela has gone viral on social media after thousands of netizens criticized them for requiring their students to wear a uniform during online classes.
Children of Mary Immaculate College Valenzuela captured the attention of the netizens for their answer about the attire required by their students to wear.
“Yes. Students and Teachers are required to wear uniform during online classes,” the school post reads.
Netizens shared their thoughts on the post of the school.
“How would this policy contribute to the learning process? If they want to conduct live teaching, maybe they could give guidelines on how to look “presentable/professional” during an online class,” netizen Teri An Magpale-Jang said.
“What is the logic of asking students to wear uniform?” netizen John Abellera remarked.
“Ganto maging mukang pera,” Aerosmith Mallillin commented.
However, some defended the school’s policy, telling them to be matured.
“Siguro kahit uniform lang na damit okna, respeto nalang siguro kase nagkakklase paden naman diba ket online class?:) makarant naman din yung iba na kesyo yung staff ang maglalaba ng uniform, malalaki na kayo, kaya nyo nayan:) napaka demanding nyo mga halatamg tamad , at walang ginagawa sa buhay. Be matured, sign of respect sa policy ng school, ang CMIC hindi para sa pagarhang lang:)” netizen Michaella Cruz stated.
The government is still not yet clarifying if students are still required to buy or wear a uniform during the new normal.
Even President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday questioned why the tuition fee didn’t change despite the fact that they ordered that there’s no face-to-face classes until there’s a vaccine available against COVID-19.
“The most pressing problem, the question most asked, why is here that there is a small drop in tuition fees even with this new learning set up?” Duterte asked.
Duterte also announced that schools will open on August 24.
