Sara backs inclusive learning


Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte on Friday appealed to stakeholders to push inclusive education during her keynote speech in the Language and Inclusion Summit at Marriot Hotel in Pasay City.

“We hope to see our IP (indigenous peoples) or ‘lumad’ learners, Muslim learners, and PWD learners experience the same learning experience we provide other people,” she added.

The summit aims to showcase the diversity of languages in the Philippines and its integration into basic education in promoting literacy.

“This Language and Inclusion Summit underscores our collective task of mainstreaming inclusive education. This brings us to the reality of the complexity of the basic education landscape,” Duterte said.

Duterte said the program aims to improve the literacy of Filipino children without discrimination.

She stressed DepEd’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education, and the Education 2030 Framework for Action.

Duterte also asked teachers to maintain their fervor to teach.

“May you serve our learners in disadvantaged situations with compassion,” she said.
