QC Basic Educational Plan, 2020 to 2023
The Quezon City Basic Educational Plan has been outlined and ready to be provisioned for execution, envisioning a better and brighter future of the student populace within the next three years, up to school year 2023.
The plan was formed last November 2019 at the Basic Education Workshop, led by the Education Affairs Unit and in collaboration with the Schools Division Office. The workshop was the venue where challenges to the education sector were discussed and possible solutions deliberated on, in light of current issues, personnel, and available resources.
With 131 participants overall, the workshop was attended by students, parents, non-teaching personnel, principals and official of the Schools Division Office.
The Quezon City Basic Educational Plan has so served as the guide for local government in funding and implementing programs up to 2023. The plan, as well as corrections and modifications since its creation, has been especially useful in light of learning modes employed to adapt to the unique challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
