In areas of the Philippines affected by the typhoon, about 90 per cent of school buildings were damaged, leaving over a million pupils and 34,000 teachers with no place for learning. The government, with UNICEF and partners are working to get children back to a normal schedule as quickly as possible, first with a 'soft' opening of schools in December, to be followed by a full reopening in January.
