Briones to work as DepEd consultant of Sara Duterte
Vice President Sara Duterte on Monday started her term as Secretary of the Department of Education (DepEd) by naming Leonor Briones, as her consultant.
“She was always generous with her advice. And I’m truly happy that she committed to stay on as a consultant for the Office of the Secretary of the Department of Education,” Duterte said.
Sara Duterte commended DepEd’s workforce led by Briones for continuing to provide quality education to learners.
“Headed by Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones, DepEd adopted and implemented bold, but necessary measures to provide Filipino children with accessible, quality education, ensuring that learning is unhampered, and our learners are not left out, while also ensuring the economic welfare of our teachers and the non-teaching personnel working under the organization,” she said.
“Secretary Liling is a force, and I am humbled and honored to follow the footsteps of a much admired academic, public servant, social activist and changemaker. I would also like to acknowledge the equally devoted men and women, our undersecretaries, assistant secretaries who supported Ma’am Liling in the last six years,” she added.
