MANILA Feb 24 — Employees from Department of Education (DepEd) must report for work during the 27th celebration of EDSA People Power on Monday, officials said.

A DepEd announcement on|Sunday said that central, regional and division offices of the department will be affected by the directive.

In a phone interview, DepEd said that the announcement is only for schools and not for government offices like DepEd.

They clarified that only school personnel will be included in the special holiday.

Last year, President Aquino signed Proclamation 459 which states that Feb 25 will be a special holiday for schools.

In his proclamation, Aquino said that the EDSA People Power has "restores and ushered political, social and economic reforms in the country.”

It also “serves as an inspiration to Filipinos everywhere as a nation and as a people, the President said. (PNA)
