BAGUIO CITY – ‘We are happy with all the pronouncement of President Noynoy Aquino for the education sector. We are now feeling the force and effort of the President not only on basic education but on the education sector perse and we appreciate it.’

 

This was the reaction of Department of Education Baguio (DepEd-Baguio) Division Superintendent Ellen Donato, to the President’s First 100 days report to the Filipino people last Thursday.

 

According to Donato, they have now a fuller grasp of the effort being made by the P-Noy administration on the education sector.

 

The increase in the budget is not much but there is now a wisdom on deciding which are the priorities, and this includes infrastructure, schools for our school in the hinter lands,’ Donato said.

 

Donato also expressed support to the proposed enhanced K+12 Basic Education program under under P-Noy’s administration. ‘We have seen the need for it. We do not say that the present basic education set-up is not effective or of quality, but based on many studies, this new program could better improve the system. We can go by the level or maybe even better than the other nations who are using it,’ Donato said.

 

This is not something new, it was considered during the time of President Fidel V. Ramos but now there is a political will to implement it,’ Donato added.

 

In his first 100 days report dubbed ‘Sandaang Araw sa Daang Matuwid: Report kay Boss’, P-Noy announced that education, along with health and poverty alleviation will be among the priorities of his administration. He also announced that from P175 Billion, the education sector budget will be increased to P207 Billion for 2011.

 

In his speech, in celebration of World Teacher’s Day, last October 5, P-Noy lauded all teachers, for their un-matched sacrifices and dedication to their work. ‘Ito po ay munting pagkilala sa mahalagang kontribusyon ng bawat guro sa kaunlaran ng lipunan,’ P-Noy said.

 

P-Noy also confirmed that education will be the first in the priorities of his administration. ‘Unang-una pos a programa ng ating gobyerno ang pagpapabuti at pagpapaganda ng kalidad ng edukasyon sa bansa,’ the President said.

 

According to P-Noy, his administration will work to address the problems of the education sector, such as the shortage of classrooms, lack of trainings and benefits for teachers, not enough teaching tolls or equipment and second-hand infrastructure. ** Lito Dar/PIA
