Reducing use of printed learning materials

The Department of Education is considering to reduce the use of printed learning materials. Given that a lot of trees are being used for production and this is harmful to the environment.

Education Secretary Leonor Briones said that printing of the materials add strain to the department’s financial resources.

“We are endeavoring to lessen our dependency on printed material if we want the environment to survive, if we want to limit the occurrence of natural disasters,” Briones said.

“Ayaw din nating i-encourage ang napakataas na dependency natin sa printed material,” she added.

Briones said that DepEd had started distributing computers, laptops and tablets. These gadgets were donated by the Bureau of Customs and the Chinese government to students. Students who cannot afford to buy gadgets will be prioritized first.
