Marcos targets to improve PH education system
President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. targets to improve the education system to provide students the necessary skills and make them more competitive.
Marcos wants to improve the technical competence of students to attract international investors to establish businesses in the Philippines.
He added that he is committed to invest in young people.
“We must continue to make them competitive anywhere in the world but most hopefully in the Philippines with our partners and with our allies,” Marcos said.
“And that will galvanize our young people to continue to work in that direction. That I think is something that will come naturally if we are able to do all of the things that we are hoping to do to transform the economy, to adjust now,” he added.
Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said that Marcos has ordered DepEd to give students with the necessary training to become “productive members of the society.”
“Hindi tayo makakaunlad kung hindi skilled ang ating workers, kung walang talino or walang kakayahan. So, sa basic education pa lang, pinangako ng Presidente na hindi niya titipirin ang ating learners,” Cruz-Angeles said.
