Trust the Department of Education to screw things up.
After announcing as early as 5 am this morning that there would be classes in all levels, the DepEd made an about-face, and declared that there would be no classes in all levels.
Unfortunately, the announcement was made at 6:50 in the morning, when majority of students are either on their way to school or are already at school. Thus, there will be some students stranded in school until their drivers pick them up, or, worse, some of them will have to commute through the flooded streets back to their house.
If the DepEd stuck to its original announcement, and let the city mayors and individual schools handle the cancellation, or, made a firm decision and immediately declared that there would be no classes, it wouldn't have to face a flood of irate parents who will most likely complain about the lateness of the DepEd cancellation.
