#BalikEskwela2016: Best class opening ever? Netizens say no
Critics dispute the Education Secretary's assertion, citing the high cost of tuition despite the availability of vouchers and the low enrollment turnout which could lead to a greater number of out-of-school youth

MANILA, Philippines – While Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Armin Luistro said the opening of classes on Monday, June 13, is the best one thus far, many netizens cited the government’s shortcomings and gaps in the process. 

This school year is significant as it marks the full implementation of the K-12 senior high school program. (READ: PH rolls out senior high’s Grade 11 nationwide)

The day started with the DepED, members of the academe, and officials welcoming students to their school facilities and the new school year.

Critics, however, disputed Luistro’s assertion, citing the high cost of tuition despite the availability of vouchers and the low enrollment turnout which could lead to a greater number of out-of-school youth.

Some netizens, however, chose to find humor and inspiration in the situation.
