MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)--Gearing up for the nearing first-ever education summit for the entire Bangsamoro region, the city schools division here held a pre-education summit Thursday, November 17, to directly solicit ideas from educators, the local chief executive, Committee on Education, and some partner stakeholders, engaging all of them in the vision of molding a successful Bangsamoro learner in the 21st century.
City Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Anna Zenaida Unte-Alonto highlighted that through this, involved parties would be able to agree on proposed policies and programs that measure the four sub-sectors of the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) which are the basic education, technical education and skills development (TESD), higher education, and Bureau of Madrasah.
“All members of the community and different stakeholders shall align together with the different policies and programs that they will create so that it will strengthen and envision the successful 21st Bangsamoro learners,” she said.
Alonto stated that all the things discussed in the pre-education summit would be consolidated to be presented in the upcoming regional education summit.
Among the topics tackled were the current profile of learners in the city, pressing issues encountered in the delivery of education, and other programs and policies desired to be inculcated in the schools division.
Alonto stressed that with the Bangsamoro region gearing towards moral governance, it is doing everything to make all Bangsamoro learners in-depth or at par with other learners by alleviating the delivery of quality education.
“We shall be ironing out things for the betterment of the delivery of quality education for all Bangsamoro learners,” she said.
Looking at the positive impact of the event if its objectives would be realized, Mayor Majul Gandamra hoped that critical ideas and information collated would become means to effectively address to the regional office all concerns from their ground.
“I pray that the input that will be made and gathered will be the vehicle that will carry the Marawi educators as voices in the upcoming education summit, and will make the way into whatever beneficial education policies the MBHTE will formulate to cater to the needs and challenges of the present and the future,” he said.
The superintendent earlier stressed that all municipalities and cities in the Bangsamoro region are mandated to hold a pre-education summit. The first BARMM education summit is expected to be spearheaded in December this year in Davao City. (CRG/PIA-10/Lanao del Sur)
