Got a math problem? Dial-a-teacher!
Location: Manila, Philippines
Students can call to make sure they don’t fall behind
as schools remain shut and learning moves online
About 70 teachers from both public and private schools are fielding calls
with most questions relating to math and English
Students can call, Facebook message or email teachers
during weekdays between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
(SOUNDBITE) (Filipino) SENIOR HIGH MATH TEACHER, AILENE ALMOITE, SAYING:
"This program is very important for the students because they cannot always easily reach out to their school teachers for inquiries. More often than not, parents are also unsure about the lessons given to the students and are unable to help them."
