LAWMAKER SEES EDCOM 2 AS ANSWER TO EDUCATION CRISIS
SENATOR Joel Villanueva is hopeful the creation of a new commission will help solve the education crisis in the country.
This came about after Republic Act 11899 or the Second Congressional Commission on Education lapsed into law last week.
In light of this, a three-year review and assessment of the country’s education system will be constructed as it shifted to distance learning amid the Covid19 pandemic.
“Bibigyang solusyon nito ang mga suliraning gaya ng learning slide dahil sa pandemya, ang mababang antas ng proficiency sa STEM at reading comprehension, gayundin ang job-skills mismatch ng mga graduate,” Villanueva added.
“Susi po ito sa malawakang reporma ng edukasyon sa bansa kung saan makikinabang ang ating mga mag-aaral, gayundin ang kaguruan,” he added.
The EDCOM 2 studies the mandates of the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education, and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority.
