DepEd Launches the GO! Education Exhibit Expo
The Department of Education (DepEd), with the support of the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd), Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has launched an Exhibit Expo to introduce the Greater Opportunities! (GO!) Education campaign to the broader public. GO! Education focuses on the three primary components towards improving access and quality of basic education in the country
- Teacher Quality,
- Curriculum Enhancements through the K to 12 Basic Education Program, and
- addressing the gaps in Resources.
“We hope that through this Expo, people will fully appreciate the benefits of the reforms we are implementing, including those on curriculum through K to 12,” said DepEd Secretary Br. Armin Luistro FSC. “We also want people to know that aside from curriculum reforms, we have also carried out and continue to implement reforms focused on improving teacher quality and augmenting resources.””
“Our educational reforms are a significant undertaking; one that will require everyone’s full support and participation,” said Luistro. “Through GO! Education, we want to encourage the entire Filipino community to support DepEd as it pushes for an education that will provide greater opportunities for our citizens,” Luistro said.
The GO! Education Exhibit Expo will run from July 27 to 29 at the The Block Atrium Activity Center, 2nd Floor, SM City North EDSA
In succeeding months, the Expo is set to run in key areas—
- SM Manila,
- SM Mall of Asia,
- SM Pampanga,
- SM Bacoor,
- SM Iloilo,
- SM Cebu,
- SM Davao
