MANILA -- The Aquino administration is now open to the proposal moving the school opening from June to September, saying this was in line with the preparation of the creation of an Asean Integration in 2015, a Palace official said Sunday.

In a radio interview aired over government run radio dzRB Radyo ng Bayan, Presidential Communication and Operation Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said that this proposal was also in line with the advocacy of Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) of Asean mobility which aims to provide easier travel of people within the region.

“Bukas ang pamahalaan sa pag-aaral ng panukalang ilipat ang panahon ng pagbubukas ng klase para sa mga kolehiyo at unibersidad, mula Hunyo patungong Setyembre, bilang paghahanda sa pag-iisa ng ating mga kasaping bansa sa Asean sa ilalim ng konsepto ng Asean integration simula sa taong 2015,” he said.

“Layunin din ng panukalang ito ang pagtugon ng ating bansa sa panawagang bigyang-daan ang ASEAN mobility, o ang malayang paglalakbay ng mga mamamayan sa bansang Asean upang mag-aral sa mga paaralang may internasyonal na orientasyon, at upang magamit ang kanilang mga kakayahan o talento sa iba’t ibang larangang propesyonal,” he added.

He, however, stressed the importance of having to further study this proposal in order to come to a fruitful decision on the matter.

Last Saturday, deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said that the Palace would just wait for the separate studies being conducted by the Commission on Higher Education and the Department of Education on the proposal of moving the opening of classes from June to August or September.

“Ipinauubaya ng pamahalaan sa Kongreso, bilang kapantay at independiyenteng sangay, ang pangunguna sa pagkilos sa paglipat sa schedule ng pagbubukas ng klase dahil ito ay napapaloob sa batas,” Coloma said.

“Sa kasalukuyan patuloy na tatalima ang pamahalaan sa pangunguna ng Kagawaran ng Edukasyon sa isinasaad ng batas tungkol sa itinatakdang panahon ng pagbubukas ng klase,” he added. (SDR/Sunnex)
