Robredo to declare education crisis if became president
Vice President Leni Robredo will declared an educational crisis if she will win this May poll.
“One of the first things that I will do if elected president is to declare an education crisis. Ang aking palagay kailangan natin itong gawin para ‘all hands on deck’ tayo. Malaki na ang problema natin and the pandemic has only exacerbated all our education problems,” Robredo said.
She said that at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, she advised that schools in areas with low Covid19 threat be kept open.
Robredo said that she aims to strengthen the partnership between the public and private education sectors.
“Addressing concerns can only be done if the government talks to the private sector and they plan together. Hindi ‘yong gobyerno inaasikaso niya lang ‘yong public schools, dapat ‘yong mga programa ng private schools ay naka-integrate sa plano ng gobyerno para hindi siya tinitignan as competitor,” she said.
