Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has approved the purchase of 60,820 tablets worth P365 million for newly enrolled public school students for the school year 2021-2022.
Incoming Grade 11 students at the Emmanuel John Institute of Science and Technology (EJIST) in Caloocan no longer have to worry about buying tablets for blended learning this school year.
Students of Pasig City no longer need to access the internet to download the modules they will need for distance learning.
Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice spent his weekend going around the city’s second district to give tablets and data sim cards to poor but deserving students.
It was a baptism of fire for the politiko in terms of a big-time public bidding.
Will you be among the lucky ones?
