12 Things Every DepEd Official Can Do To Help Our Country

Let's Start the Revolution of the Filipino Youth IX

1. Take the necessary steps to improve the quality of education in the country.

2. Close the shortage in classrooms and school facilities.

3. Teach the "12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Hel Our Country," a book by Alexander L. Lacson to all students and teachers.

4. Institutionalize a national teacher development training program.

5. Maximize the use of Filipino as the language of instruction and enhance the English language proficiency of students as well.

6. Streamline all departmental processes and procedures.

7. Connect with respective Local Government Units (LGUs) and Provincial Governments for collaborative work.

8. Connect all public schools, colleges and universities to the Internet.

9. Emphasize the War on Waste (WOW) program of the department.

10. Encourage parents to become active in their children's education.

11. Run the department like a business enterprise.
There are over 50,000 non-teaching staff in the department and 450,000 plus teachers.
I believe there are many rooms for improvement on this point.

12. Love your work. Love your students like your own.

"Today's children will someday rule and lead this world. But whether they will be bad rules or good leaders, will depend largely on how we raise them today." - Alex Lacson, "12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Help Our Country"
