    Former Education Secretaries, officials, staff, teachers endorse Robredo, Pangilinan

    Former Education Secretaries, officials, staff, teachers endorse Robredo, Pangilinan

    Six former secretaries and at least 90 former officials, staff, and teachers from the Department of Education have endorsed Vice President Leni Robredo and Sen. Kiko Pangilinan to be the nation’s next leaders.

    “Both bring solid experience and a grounded understanding of the education sector, its challenges, and what needs to be done,” the group said in a statement. “A vote for them on May 9, 2022, goes beyond electing sincere, genuine, and competent leaders. A
    vote for them is a vote for quality education for all Filipino learners.”

    The statement was signed by former Education Secretaries Edilberto de Jesus, Fe Hidalgo, Mona Valisno, Jesli Lapus, Florencio Abad, and Br. Armin Luistro FSC, as well as officials, staff, and teachers.

    “We need leaders who will: advocate lifelong learning for all Filipinos; understand the value of education in every person's life and as the foundation of our country's development and growth; use their clear and in-depth understanding of the education sector and of pervading systemic issues to chart the right priorities and evidence-based programs that will have a sustained positive impact on teaching and learning,” the statement said.

    The statement also said our nation’s leaders need to “seek measures to promote and secure the welfare of teachers and all education workers; strengthen the largest government bureaucracy with honest and effective governance, and learning delivery that will bring government even closer to the margins where its presence is most needed.” [End]
