DepEd remains committed to improve literacy rate

The Department of Education remains committed to improve the literacy rate through its ‘Bawat Bata Bumabasa’.

DepEd said that it remains steadfast in anchoring its reforms and initiatives to improve the country’s literacy rate and bridge the learning gap.

It recognized the critical role of reading and literacy and urged teachers, parents, and education partners to continue setting good examples as reading champions for the children.

 “Our schools have conducted various activities such as Read-a-Thon, Share-a-Book drive, and Book Talk, to promote the love for reading — a foundational step in basic education — among learners,” the department said.
