[Press Release] Teachers call for a wider consultation on DEPED’s 12-year program – Teachers Dignity Coalition

TEACHERS CALL FOR A WIDER CONSULTATION ON DEPED’S 12-YEAR PROGRAM

The Teachers Dignity Coalition (TDC) remains critical of the 12-year basic education program of the Aquino administration despite announcement from the Department of Education (DepEd) that the program will be implemented this school year.

“We are not convinced that this program will succeed. The DepEd should first persuade the legislature and the president to allocate more funds in education sector. The backlog on resource shortages should be addressed first before we talk about this ambitious program” said Emmalyn Policarpio, an elementary school teacher in Valenzuela and the group’s spokesperson.

The group calls for a wider and genuine public consultation especially with the parents, students and teachers who will be directly affected by the program.

“We believe that the DepEd has good intentions in pushing for this initiative, however, we would not agree that this ambitious program will work in the kind of situation we have in our public school.” Policarpio ended.
