SENATOR TO FILE MORE BILLS ON LEARNING RECOVERY
SENATOR Sherwin Gatchalian on Tuesday vowed to file more bills to support learning recovery and the strengthening of the basic education sector.
The senator joined President Rodrigo Duterte in lauding the enactment into law of the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education or the Free Tuition Law, which he authored.
The chairman of the Senate Committee on Basic Education, Arts and Culture also stressed the need to address the crisis in the basic education sector.
To address the learning losses due to a year of school closures, Gatchalian plans to file a bill that will put a “catch-up” plan in place.
“Sa nalalabing mga buwan ng kasalukuyang administrasyon, tututukan natin ang muling pagbangon at pagpapatatag sa sektor ng edukasyon matapos ang pinsalang dulot ng pandemya,” he said.
“Titiyakin nating makakapagpasa tayo ng mga angkop na batas upang maiangat ang kalidad ng edukasyon, gawing mas ligtas ang ating mga paaralan, at maging handa ang ating kabataan na tugunan ang mga pangangailangan ng bansa,” he added.
