DepEd won’t adopt pass or drop grading system

The Department of Education will not adopt the pass or drop grading system even as Congress has shown its full support toward a push for academic ease and leniency amid the new normal where face-to-face classes are prohibited under community quarantines and distance learning is continually challenged by poor internet connectivity.

Education Assistant Secretary for curriculum and instruction Alma Torio said the DepEd aims to continue the regular grading system and will just conduct remedial classes to address poor proficiencies among students.

At a recent hearing of the House of Representatives committee on basic education and culture, Torio said they were considering the problem of poor grades among students, which had already raised the need for remedial classes.

She added, “If we see that a learner is at risk, we need to create measures to help them and be really able to say that no one will be left behind.”
