VP Sara to Teachers: Be reading champions
Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte emphasized the importance of reading that could help push the country’s learning recovery program.
In a recorded video shared on Facebook livestream, Duterte read stories including “Ang Kamatis ni Peles” and “Ang Bungtod ug Ako” to the young learners.
DepEd called teachers, parents, and education partners to be reading champions who will set a good example for the young generation.
“We urge our teachers, parents, and education partners to continue setting good examples as reading champions for our children,” DepED said adding that it recognizes the critical role of reading and literacy in its quest to deliver quality education.
DepEd is determined to impel reading among students which could help the country improve its literacy rate and bridge the learning gap.
“Under the stewardship of the Vice President and Secretary of Education, Sara Z. Duterte, remains steadfast in anchoring its reforms and initiatives to improve the country’s literacy rate and bridge the learning gap. DepEd is committed to make Bawat Bata Bumabasa a reality to provide more opportunities for the Filipino youth,” it added.
