Sara Duterte to become DepEd secretary

Sara Duterte to become DepEd secretary

Leading vice presidential candidate  Sara Duterte-Carpio agreed to be secretary of Department of Education (DepEd) once elected, leading presidential Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. announced.

“I’ve already been authorized to announce the first nominee we will be giving to the Commission on Appointments when the time comes should I be proclaimed. That is that our incoming Vice President has agreed to take the Department of Education,” Marcos Jr. said in a televised speech.

“Tinanong ko sa kanya kung kaya nya yung trabaho dahil mahirap ang trabaho ng secretary of education. Pero nag-agree naman siya,” he added.

Marcos believes that Duterte agreed to take the education department since she is a mother looking after for her children. 

“Palagay ko kasama na diyan dahil she is a mother, and she wants to make sure her children are well trained, well educated, that’s the best motivation we can hope for,” he said.
