TACLOBAN CITY – The Department of Education (DepEd) in Tacloban City has advised students to continue wearing their uniforms for the upcoming school year, even though it is not required.

"Yes, there is truth to school uniforms not being mandatory, but schools opted to encourage the wearing of school uniforms for identification. This will also save the parents from difficulty in deciding what to wear every day,"  Department of Education Tacloban City SDS Dr. Mariza S. Magan told the city's information office.

This came after she was asked about her reaction to Department of Education Spokesperson Atty. Michael Tan Poa's statement that "uniforms are not mandatory."

Dr. Magan went on to say that wearing the required school uniform will help control the number of students who skip classes. "This will also prevent discrimination or insecurity among students when it comes to "OOTD or Outfit Of The Day," she added.

Nonetheless, the DepEd official stated that the DepEd Tacloban City Division will follow the national order, and she will issue a memo reminding schools of said instruction while encouraging students to wear whatever decent school outfit is beneficial to them as long as they wear their school IDs. —iTacloban (Source: TCIO)
