DepEd chief enlists private school administrators in improvement of RP education

Pasig City (13 October) -- Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Jesli Lapus addressed various school administrators during the Annual Regional Convention of the Private Secondary School Administrators Association of the Philippines (PRISSAAP) Region 3 held at the Tagaytay International Convention Center today.

In his keynote address, Secretary Lapus emphasized the role of school administrators in the department's efforts to produce globally competitive students, as well as in the improvement of the state of basic education in the country.

"Principals are the principal ingredient for meaningful change," Secretary Lapus said. "As such, we need to provide them with all the means necessary to empower them to effect meaning change."

The DepEd chief laid down plans to improve the training and development of school administrators in addition to the current programs being implemented by the department. These includes efforts to improve english proficiency, as well as pre-service and in-service training for teachers and administrators, and the move to support the proposed Salary Standardization Law, which will increase the salaries of teachers to as much as 100%.

In closing, Secretary Lapus urged private schools to be in the forefront of the pursuit of excellence in Education by ensuring the quality of education in their own respective schools. He also asked them to enjoin their local education stakeholders to make public education their number one social concern.

"As we call on the entire nation to join us in the effort to improve public education in the country, we also call on the private education sector to contribute to this important undertaking," Secretary Lapus said. "This begins at home, in your respective schools. By giving all Filipino children better education, we too can give them better opportunities to live better lives in the years to come."
