DepEd invites the public to witness the GO! Education Finale this weekend
February 8, 2013
How far have Department of Education and the private sector gone in improving the country’s public school system?
This will be answered during the Greater Opportunities! (GO!) Education Finale exhibit slated on Feb 9 – 10 at the Music Hall, SM Mall of Asia.
The event aims to create public awareness on the accomplishments thus far of the department especially in improving teacher quality, reform in the basic education curriculum through K to 12 as well as initiatives to fill up education resource gaps to achieve zero backlog by the end of 2013.
“This will be a celebration of milestones we’ve achieved since 2010 in line with President Noynoy Aquino’s 10 point education agenda. It is also a celebration of partnerships and a call to the public for continued support to sustain these reform programs,” said Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.
The public and education stakeholders are invited to the two-day event which will be highlighted by presentations of private partners, a VIP event, and a Rock Ed concert featuring Moonstarr88 and Ebe Dancel at 8pm on February 9.
“We chose a popular and accessible venue to give public space for supporters from various sectors to express their commitment to education” Luistro added.
The GO! Education exhibit will be open during mall hours this weekend.
