Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones commended the Research Center for Teacher Quality (RCTQ) and underscored its important role as the Department pivots from enhancing access to ensuring quality basic education.

“I’m so pleased that there is an institution exclusively focusing on research in education,” the Secretary mentioned during her keynote address during the celebration of the RCTQ partnerships at the Philippine Normal University — Manila on 29 August.

The school was established as a result of the partnership between the SiMERR National Research Center at the University of New England in Australia and the Philippine Normal University, the National Center for Teacher Education. Its vision is to provide evidence-based policy advice for strengthening teacher quality, while its mission is to conduct high-impact applied research directed at strengthening teacher quality.
