DepEd asks P800 billion budget for 2023
The Department of Education will demand for P800 billion budget for 2023, Undersecretary Epimaco Densing III said.
Densing said that the proposal will be tackled with the Department of Budget.
He said that a big part of the budget will be utilized for the teachers salary.
If approved, the P800 billion will be nearly 27 percent higher than this year’s P629.8 billion budget.
“The major investment should be ensuring that our learners improve in their standards, quality of education is key and part of this is really to improve the teaching standards or investing in the training of our teaching personnel specifically of our teachers,” he said.
