that the water has the glee and they have to get their temperature checked before they get into the schools, some schools are doing hybrid learning, where some students are the face to face classes on sundays, and then others are still doing this and online learning. but the biggest concern is the quality of learning that has really gone down during the pandemic in 2019 and estimated 30 percent. the filipino school kids that have reached the age of 10 could not read simple text or understand a simple story. now during the pandemic, international agency say that number has gone down to less than 20 percent. and so the education department is hoping that by resuming face to face classes philippine the school kids could catch up with global learning standards. the u. n's children's child, he says being shut out of school has a big impact on children around the world and says, closures can be blamed for a rise and students dropping out,

8:05 am
but not only dead. it also pro the provis children from the ability to learn to be with their peers, and that's always sensual, especially in the younger years when children really need to spend that time developing their social skills, developing learning and as the search philippines was already in that position before the panoramic when it comes to quality of learning. and so today it's really a moment celebrate. children are back to school. you can imagine the excitement of parents children themselves, but also teachers and everyone is working in the education system. so it's a great step in the right direction. we're really commending the government for making the size of steps to bring children back to school. it must needed and then you president marcos has said that he plans to provide more cash for education. do you think that simply supplying money is going to allow children who have been away from school for over 2 years to be able to catch up with their peers around the rest of the world? what else needs to be done?
8:06 am
so 1st of all, children have to be back in school. the face to face learning is absolutely essential, but we also need to assess what learning has been lost in the past years. for example, a better understanding of how can we reach children that are in hard to reach areas that are having difficulty of attending a scott classroom even before and i mean, so, and wide area actually needs to be taking. as i said, the assessment is quite important. we also need to look at prioritizing, for example, access to learning material. but fundamentally, i think, starting with the essential skills is reading and writing. putting that in the forefront of the efforts of regaining learning. that's lost as absolutely essential at that point in time. if i understand correctly, one of the issues at the philippines was already facing prior to the pandemic was the overcrowding of classrooms and the access to the, the materials that, that, that, that you're talking about. is there a going to be enough done?
8:07 am
do you think to be able to deal with the overcrowding issue and the access of materials to be able but we were talking about to allow children to be able to catch up and make up for the time that they've lost. absolutely, it's a process. i mean, we have to commend 1st steps that are being taken right now, and i think the decisive decisions to make in person learning and absolute priority and opening all schools for in person learning in november is an absolute right step. secondly, we have the highest ranking, 2nd highest ranking, official of the philippines. now, at the home of the department of education, it just shows how much importance is being given to regaining a learning that has been lost in the past and assessing the situation where investments need to take place. so obviously they are white array of investments that need to be made in infrastructure and learning quality and how we equip
8:08 am
teachers and how do we give support to parents and peers to read, calibrate and basically go back to what learning was used to be before and then, and that's a whole process and it's a whole society approach obviously. but we see that they are really good steps taken right now with today being just to start obviously much more will have to come make a violent thank you very much indeed for being with us. so now to sit on giving us the benefit of your expertise. thank you very much. indeed. thank you. thank you. like a sounds former prime minister in wrong cons being charged under the anti terrorism act is accused of attempting to intimidate the police and judiciary. during a recent speech, a senior official of cons parties says he has yet to be arrested. con, lost no confidence vote in april, but he's experienced a surge of support. as the economy struggles is latest route is have drawn tens of thousands of people more. come on. hi does joining the live from islam about come

8:24 am
levels. and as the river itself continues to fall. well, the 1st thing that's going to have to happen is that some farmers are literally going to have to go out of production. they're going to have to follow their fields . they're not going to be able to grow crops a we're already seeing request voluntary requests in the urban areas in the big cities for reductions in water use. but those requests are going to become mandatory overtime. we're going to see cut backs to allocations for water for indoor use, especially for outdoor use. a lot of the water is still used on outdoor landscaping, and that's going to have to stop. so we're going to see cutbacks for urban users and for agricultural users as well, we simply cannot afford to keep giving more water away. the nature provides especially now with a price, with the quite obvious consequences of climate change. only 2000 workers at one of the his busiest ports of walked off the jobs, reckoning, serious disruption fitting. so port accounts for nearly half of the countries

container fate. the 8 day walk has been sparked by a pe dispute. harry force has been speaking to some of the striking workers the world's largest container ship at britain's largest container. port the ever a lot arrived on thursday and normally would be long gone by now. but strike action by felix. those 1900100 duck workers, has stopped operations. the unite union says a recently increased offer of a 7 percent pay rise doesn't keep pace with spiraling inflation. it's seeking a double digit raise that it says would share surging corporate profits. $71000000.00 at last count more equitably with the workers. now unfortunately, we've yet to be given an offer which we think we can take back and which reflects members of bryson. and talking to members today in which we're in a position that there is you can see we've, we've had that message sent back to us loud and clear. felix to port says it was
8:26 am
reminded in recent days by the bank of england of the inflation re effects a big pay rises. the port company accuses the union of using the workers in a national struggle on average for our case. this is next for 3 and a half 1000 pounds in cash to them each year. the action that they're taking now that united is making them take me not having to put this offer to all workers, but the action that united making them take is actually going to take the best part of a 1000 pounds out of their pocket. the question is, how far the effects of this shut down will ripple through the u. k. economy. the port says the effects will be manageable, pointing to the lessons learned during the supply chain. disruption of the pandemic . suddenly, the ever a lot isn't going anywhere anytime soon. and some industry analysis suggest other containers ship as are already offloading the cargo in europe. instead of the u. k . the union accepts that will be major disruption and says that it could carry out further strikes as it seeks. what it says is a fair deal up the road in ipswich,
