November 14, 2022 – The Department  of Education (DepEd) expresses its gratitude to the Senate of the Philippines for approving the budget of the Department and its attached agencies for the Fiscal Year 2023.

Amidst the various challenges confronting basic education, amplified even further by the Covid-19 pandemic, learning recovery truly requires a whole-of-nation-approach.

Today, led by our sponsor and education champion Sen Pia S. Cayetano, our honorable senators ensured that the Department will have sufficient funding to begin our road to recovery.

Under the leadership of Vice President and Secretary Sara Z. Duterte, and with the renewed trust and confidence from our lawmakers, the Department is committed to effectively and efficiently utilize its funds in providing accessible, quality basic education for the Filipino youth that is both inclusive and empowering.

Thank you.
