DepEd committed to address learning losses
The Department of Education (DepEd) has reiterated its commitment to address “learning losses” of students due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
DepEd spokesman Michael Poa said the present administration’s plan is anchored on the four pillars of the Basic Education Development Plan (BEDP) 2030: access, equity, quality and resiliency.
“What’s included in access is also infrastructure, because how will they get access to education if we do not have enough classrooms and facilities?” he said.
Equity means giving all schools with proper funding regardless of where they are located, said Poa.
Poa said DepEd will focus on improving learning materials and providing teachers with upskilling, reskilling and training to ensure quality education.
“Lastly is resilience. These are our responses yearly whenever there are calamities or problems like COVID,” he said.
