‘The Atom Araullo Specials’ presents ‘Batch 2020’
This Sunday, Atom Araullo explores schooling amid the pandemic in “The Atom Araullo Specials: Batch 2020.”
With at least 20 million students enrolled for the school year 2020-2021, this will be one of the most unique, challenging, and historic school openings in our lifetime. Despite the Department of Education (DepEd) officially opening the school year last October 5, one question still remains: how ready are we for blended education?
The Atom Araullo Specials followed four individuals in their journey to meet the demands of education during the “new normal.” Atom meets Charlie, a 12-year-old student who collects crabs in the fish port in Navotas. Charlie is saving his meager earnings in the hopes of buying a cellphone for his online class. Atom also meets Pam, a single mother of three who has now become a national teacher-broadcaster for DepEd. She now juggles her new role as a teacher-broadcaster and as a mother who needs to make sure that her children are coping with blended learning.
Atom then goes to the mountains of Rizal to meet volunteers who help children with illiterate parents. In the last leg of the documentary, Atom visits one of the most remote schools in General Nakar, Quezon.
“The Atom Araullo Specials: Batch 2020” airs October 25, 3:30 p.m. on GMA.
