The Department of Education (DepEd) has so far logged the highest number of enrolled learners in Calabarzon (Region 4-A).

According to DepEd’s latest data, 2,116,809 learners were registered in the region’s provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon for the upcoming school year 2022-2023.

This accounted for over 10 percent of the national figure for enrollment hitting 14,284,778.

The National Capital Region (NCR) recorded the second highest count with more than 1.7 million enrollees, followed by Central Luzon with over 1.4 million.

Learners at the elementary level recorded the highest turnout with over 6.6 million, followed by enrollees from Junior High School with more than 4.6 million, then over 2.1 million learners in Senior High School, and 946,611 learners in Kindergarten.

Earlier, Education spokesperson Michael Poa noted that this year’s enrollment turnout was significantly higher than the previous school year, considering their approach to a gradual transitioning to in-person classes.

The DepEd assured the public that the majority of schools last year have shown preparedness for the face-to-face learning setup.

In a Viber message, the DepEd said 34,769 schools are participating in face-to-face classes.

“Out of this number, 33,691 of which are public schools or 74.67 percent of the total number of public schools, and 1,078 of which are private schools or 8.73 percent of the total number of private schools,” the DepEd said. (PNA)
