Philippine students return to school for first time since Covid

Millions of students across the Philippines have returned to the classroom on Monday, after one of the world’s longest school closures.

Almost half the country’s schools resumed in-person classes after more than two years of distance learning.

The Philippines was one of the last few countries to transition back to face-to-face learning after Covid struck.

But some experts say the prolonged suspension of in-person lessons has worsened an education crisis.

Around 24,000 of the country’s public schools – or just less than half – will implement five days of face-to-face classes.
