Department of Education Vision, Mission, Core Values, Mandate

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Check out Philippines Department of Education (DepEd) Vision, Mission, and Core Values.

The DepEd Vision 

We dream of Filipinos 
who passionately love their country 
and whose values and competencies 
enable them to realize their full potential 
and contribute meaningfully to building the nation. 

As a learner-centered public institution, 
the Department of Education 
continuously improves itself 
to better serve its stakeholders. 

The DepEd Mission 

To protect and promote the right of every Filipino to quality, equitable, culture-based, and complete basic education where:
  • Students learn in a child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe, and motivating environment
  • Teachers facilitate learning and constantly nurture every learner 
  • Administrators and staff, as stewards of the institution, ensure an enabling and supportive environment for effective learning to happen 
  • Family, community, and other stakeholders are actively engaged and share responsibility for developing life-long learners


The Department of Education was established through the Education Decree of 1863 as the Superior Commission of Primary Instruction under a Chairman. The Education agency underwent many reorganization efforts in the 20th century in order to better define its purpose vis a vis the changing administrations and charters. The present day Department of Education was eventually mandated through Republic Act 9155, otherwise known as the Governance of Basic Education act of 2001 which establishes the mandate of this agency. The Department of Education (DepEd) formulates, implements, and coordinates policies, plans, programs and projects in the areas of formal and non-formal basic education. It supervises all elementary and secondary education institutions, including alternative learning systems, both public and private; and provides for the establishment and maintenance of a complete, adequate, and integrated system of basic education relevant to the goals of national development.

Put an end to suffering

Thursday, March 27, 2014

You may have noticed that suffering and problems does not discriminate. Natural disaster, illness, violent, crimes, and other tragedies can affect anyone, anytime, anywhere. Humanitarian organizations have worked tirelessly to prevent and abolish or at least relieve human suffering. But what have their efforts achieved?

Take for example- the battle against hunger. According to some newspapers, disaster have left many homeless and without food. However, the paper reports that the efforts of agencies that work to alienate hunger are hampered by mounting violence. Political, social and medical leaders have all tried their best to alienate suffering, but the results have been disappointing. Programs and projects to stimulate economic growth have not eliminated poverty. Vaccines, drugs, and advanced surgical techniques cannot end all sickness. Police officers and peacekeeping or even escalate.

Wake up!

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Can you remember of yesterday’s Filipino situation? According to everyone’s experiences, especially in Marcos’ Administration, people were not suffering. You know, people could buy a candy with 25 cents. All kinds of goods, especially rice, noodles, etc. were in lower prizes.

But now, cents has been devalued. This time, what all can say is that crisis in the Philippines rises. Everything goes high. This is a big trouble in family who has fewer earnings. They can only buy a little amount of what they need. Like for example, rice instead of 1 kilo of it, they can only buy a half of it. So a family can’t have enough food because they have to make both ends meet especially when the family is big.

But not only in that situation can we say that crisis is present. There are more situations to be cited. Not in citizen(s) is the conflict. It is in the administration that governs the country. In the present administration, you can notice that more people are starved. In that situation, you can’t help but think that the administration is corrupting the people’s money.

Are they not contented? Can’t they see what’s happening around? If you only know, our president is negotiating to more, big and rich countries, in terms of financial help for our country, and indeed he succeeds. The question is where does the money go? What about the taxes paid by the people? Let’s wake up!

Teenage Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a special and critical stage of a woman. Some says that giving birth is not easy because she is fighting between life and death. To bear a child is a wonderful thing that a woman wants to have. But bear in mind that giving birth is not easy especially if you’re a teenager.

World Population Day is celebrated every year. This is a gathering of all the important persons who are studying about the population of a country. This year’s problem was all about teen pregnancy. It is not new to us but the increase of teenage pregnancy is a hindrance to success of our nation. Our country now is still weary in poverty because of over population.

According to the UP Population Institution, the highest rate of pregnancy is in Southeast Asia. In the Philippines, according to NSO, teen pregnancies in 2000 are around 324 and it augmented in 2010 which are around 755 individuals.

The factors that cause teenage pregnancy are: The influence of the internet or the addiction of the teenagers of chatting, facebook, twitter, instagram, and etc., the use of drugs, having boyfriends, making wrong decisions and etc.

We can avoid this by doing right in our lives. Avoid being haste, think first before we act. We don’t have to be in a hurry because we are still young to bear a child and we have lots of challenges to pass by. And stand in the saying of Dr. Jose Rizal that, “Youth is the hope of our nation.”

We meet this organism in almost every corner of our house, canteen, office, but most especially in our classrooms. What do you think is it? The PARASITE…

According to the dictionary, a parasite is an organism that lives on and feeds off another without rendering any service in return or something that resembles a biological parasite in dependence on something else for existence or support without making a useful or adequate return.
In our institution, parasites are very present. We can find them by looking in any of the directions. Not the kind of parasites that were introduced to us in our biology class rather, I am referring to those people who love to take advantage on others in order to support their needs.

A very common situation of parasitism happens inside our dear classrooms, where we all spend time in learning. When a teacher is having a quiz and asks his students to get a whole sheet of paper, the class would readily be in chaos, students are moving from one chair to another to find a sheet of paper. Pity to the one who affords to buy an expensive pad of paper.

Another is when your classmates would ask you an amount of your face powder for them to prep themselves. And the annoying part is that when they notice that you have a not-known brand (china-china) face powder they would readily tell you that “KAY____ NALANG KO MANGAYO”. A situation that a person would keep borrowing money from you and not even paying back, would duplicate your assignments, would copy on you during quizzes and even in every exams but is selfish enough to let his to be copied. In various cases, you find someone who always shares with your food but keeps his to himself. What is sad is that if we keep seeing the same faces doing these things over and over again, like there’s no ending.

Can’t they afford to buy their own?, to provide for their own? It’s okay to depend on people but please not most of the times. We must learn to stand in our own feet. We are students; we have a long way to go. We cannot have these people stay behind our backs forever to provide our needs for us. We should realize that how is it to be supplying other people’s needs. How is it feels to be on other’s shoes? Doing these things would lead us to become a parasite, doing it will evolve into a habit. If we feel we are shortly becoming a parasite then change before it’s too late. We should bring this in common sense that life is composed of a give-and-take relationship.
