During the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Basic Education Report (BER) 2023, Marcos vowed to build infrastructure that will provide learners, teachers, and the entire academic sector with a healthy and safe environment conducive for learning.

He said they are already planning on how to get the school building program off the ground to address deficiencies.

Recognizing the vital role of teachers in improving the country’s educational system, Marcos promised to invest in them by offering multiple opportunities to meet their personal and professional needs so that they can effectively perform their roles as teachers and mentors.

“Our teachers are there because it is a vocation. Teachers do not become teachers because it is their job. Teachers do not become teachers because they want to become rich. Teachers become teachers because they have to. It is a vocation,” the President said.

“And it is up to us to support them in that effort because they feel the need to educate young people. And we are blessed that we have such teachers and we should hold them close and do all we can to support them so that they can do, to the best of their ability, what they have pledged to do,” he added.

Marcos said the government students will be given the right tools and mechanisms in their day-to-day schooling as he encouraged educators to adopt new technologies and innovations that will aid learners in their pursuit of learning.

To instill the value of hard work and patriotism in young citizens, he encouraged Filipinos to embrace the DepEd’s theme: “Bansang Makabata, Batang Makabansa.”

Marcos also enjoined the society in building the best education system for the Philippines and the country’s future, the learners.

Education Secretary Vice President Sara Duterte presented during the event the departments “Matatag” education agenda which includes making the K-12 curriculum relevant to produce job-ready; active and responsible citizens; taking steps to accelerate the delivery of basic education services and provision of facilities; taking good care of learners by promoting learner well-being, inclusive education and a positive learning environment; and giving support for teachers to teach better.
