So, dito po natin iisa-isahin sa publiko kung ano ‘yong mga specific challenges ng basic education (We want to present to the public what the current state of education really is because we always hear about the many challenges of basic education. So, here we will list what are the specific challenges of basic education),” Poa said.
“Aside from that, syempre pagkalatag natin ng challenges, ang Department po natin ay maglulunsad ng Education Agenda. Tinutukoy nito ang mga plans and initiatives natin upang maresolba ‘ang mga challenges na ito (Aside from that, of course, we will establish challenges, and our Department will launch an Education Agenda. It determines our plans and initiatives to resolve these challenges),” he added.
Further, DepEd will also launch a new call to action for all Filipinos anchored on BER 2023.
“It’s really to give the public an idea of the steps that this administration will take and also the direction of this administration towards resolving issues in basic education,” the spokesperson ended.
