You’d think that after decades of typhoons and floods, we’d be experts by now, knowing when to call for class suspension. But why is it that every time we are hit with rains, parents are scrambling all over trying to find out whether classes will be suspended or not?
In the pre-internet days, one had to rely on radio and TV to learn if classes were suspended. Back then, radio and TV stations would call the schools to ask if they were suspending classes. Representatives of the schools would also call the stations themselves to relay this information.
But now with the internet, Facebook, Twitter and mobile phones, it boggles the mind why confusion still happens each and every time we are pounded by winds and rains.
