Learning materials should focus on basics – Marcos

Learning materials should focus on basics – Marcos

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.  said that there is a need to rethink the learning materials used and would focus on teaching students the basics.

“What we teach in our schools, the materials used must be rethought. I am not talking about history,” Marcos said.

“I am talking about the basics, the sciences, sharpening theoretical aptitude and imparting vocational skills,” he added.

Sen. Imee, earlier said their family had no plans of revising history.

Marcos said “there is hope for a comeback of an education system that prepared coming generations for more and better jobs, adding that Vice President and incoming Education Secretary Sara Duterte will fit that mission to a tee.” 

Duterte said Marcos ordered for a review of the K-12 program education system.
