DepEd strives for drop-out reduction

Tuguegarao City (2 February) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) Region 2 has embarked on its drop-out reduction campaign program after incurring a high rate enrollment drop-out in school year 2007-2008.

Ms. Vilma Buraga, Chief- Secondary Education Division, said more than 7,000 enrollees dropped out last school year due to poverty and distance from the residence to the school.

As early as January this year, DepEd has required the school heads to submit the names of their graduating student who are expected to enroll in secondary level.

Students who would enter high school in June may now register in the school of their own choice during Saturdays and even during the free time of teachers and advisers," Buraga said.

She said they tapped the Parents Teachers and Community Association (PTCA) and Local Government Units (LGUs) to help them in disseminating the program to attain the desired number of enrollees next school year and to bring the drop-outs back to school.

Aside from this, DepEd will also implement the Alternative Learning System (ALS) for the Out of School Youths (OSY) and other individuals who are qualified to enroll in the program. The program encompasses both informal and formal sources of knowledge and skills.

She also said that they are now working with other agencies and institutions to provide more school buildings and bring them nearer to the far communities.

"We are also working with other schools and institutions to establish enhanced technology and livelihood education pilot schools in the field of agriculture, fishery, industrial arts, information and communication and home economics as elective subjects to the students," Buraga added.
