As the Senate approved its proposed budget for 2023, the Department of Education (DepEd) committed to supporting inclusive learning recovery throughout the nation.

The DepEd made the announcement on Monday night after the Senate approved the PHP667.18 billion proposed budget for the department and its associated agencies.

The DepEd expressed gratitude to lawmakers for ensuring “adequate funds” for the education sector in a statement.

The budget for the Department of Education (DepEd) and its connected agencies for the Fiscal Year 2023 was approved by the Senate of the Philippines, for which the Department of Education (DepEd) expressed its gratitude.

The approved budget allocates PHP154.4 million for the education of indigenous peoples and PHP581.6 million for special education (SpEd).

According to the DepEd, “under the leadership of Vice President and Secretary Sara Duterte, and with the renewed trust and confidence from our lawmakers, the Department is committed to effectively and efficiently utilize its funds in order to provide affordable, high-quality basic education for Filipino youth that is both inclusive and empowering.

According to the agency, this financing will aid the education sector as it works to recover from the effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

“Learning recovery actually demands a whole-of-nation approach among the numerous difficulties facing basic education, which have been made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic… Our honorable senators made sure that the Department will have enough resources to start our journey to recovery under the leadership of our sponsor and advocate for education, Sen. Pia S. Cayetano, it stated.

The PHP150 million confidential fund, which will be utilized to protect the safety and security of students and staff, was also included in the approved budget.

In a previous statement, the DepEd argued that the confidential fund has a “strong legal foundation” and that it should be implemented promptly to ensure that programs are target-specific.

“Sexual abuse and all other forms of violence, graft, and corruption; student and staff use of illegal drugs; recruitment to insurgency, terrorism, and violent extremism; child labor; child pornography; and recruitment to criminal activities, gangsterism, financial scams, and other issues, are just a few of the pressing issues, which by their nature as being illegal, need the support of surveillance and intelligence gathering to ensure that DepEd projects are successful,” said the statement.
