Teachers want to talk with VP Sara
The Alliance of Concerned Teachers asked for a conversation with incoming Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio.
“Incoming VP and DepEd Sec Sara Duterte has expressed her intention of addressing the effects of the pandemic to our learners, and discussing about the K-12 (Kindergarten to Grade 12) program. Our teachers are in the best position to give her ground reports and an honest assessment of the situation,” Vladimer Questua, the group’s spokesperson, said.
Questua said that his group is ready to talk with the incoming education secretary to discuss problems and solutions to the learning crisis, especially on the K to 12 program.
“We advise her not to repeat the mistake of Education Secretary Leonor ‘Liling’ Briones who has not once faced ACT and our accredited unions in a dialogue despite our countless requests,” he said.
Quetua also asked Duterte-Carpio to be more democratic in her style of leadership.
