DepEd asks P848-billion budget for 2023
The Department of Education (DepEd) has proposed P848 billion budget for 2023.
DepEd Spokesperson lawyer Michael Poa said that the “actual budget” DepEd will ask for in 2023 is P848 billion.
“We already submitted this to DBM [Department of Budget and Management] for their clearance,” Poa said.
Poa said that the DepEd remains optimistic that it will be granted the full budget it has requested, while the DBM set DepEd’s 2023 budget to P701 billion,
“We are standing firm on our budget proposal because we really need this,” Poa said.
“We will make our arguments in Congress when the time comes,” he added.
