DepEd donates education training center to ARMM

Teachers and school administrators from the Department of Education -- Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) will now have a regular venue to house their trainings specifically to upgrade their teaching and school management skills as DepEd Region 12 transfers to the former ownership of the Regional Education Learning Center (RELC) in Cotabato City.

This is contained in an agreement signed recently between DepEd Regional Director Rosa Gutierrez and DepEd ARMM Secretary Jamar Kulayan.

Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC said the move is a manifestation of the steadfast and continuing support of the national government to improve the standard of education in the ARMM region.

“We believe that this training center will enable the ARMM teachers and school administrators to further enhance their capabilities which will ultimately contribute to the cause of peace in Mindanao,” added Luistro.

The government has recently signed a peace agreement with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front that is expected to usher in peace and prosperity in Mindanao.

The RELC is an ideal venue for trainings on the latest teaching-learning strategies as well as for seminars on improving classroom instruction, information communication technology in education, record keeping and data gathering and school management systems, among others.

“We expect the new owners to preserve the property, to use it to serve its purpose, and to optimize its use as an education skills enhancement hub,” Luistro pointed out.

Earlier this week, the Australian government has given a grant worth Aus$85 million to enhance basic education in the ARMM.

“Education and prosperity go hand in hand but first and foremost, there must be peace,” Luistro stressed.
