During the rainy season, students, parents and school administrators are always on their toes on the lookout for possible class suspensions either the night before or early morning. The plot thickens when one by one, local governments start to make announcements that they are suspending classes in their respective areas.

The recent burial of Ferdinand Marcos at the LNMB has spawned plentiful issues – the legalities of the burial, the Supreme Court’s decision, Martial Law, outcry of the millenials, PRRD’s affinity with the Marcos family and historical revisionism among many others.
