[VIDEO]: VP Sara Duterte-Carpio answers questions for the DepEd
Not Just Online Classes
VP Sara Duterte-Carpio already leads the Department of Education to a successful transition from online classes to face-to-face set-up in public schools. Now, deliberations are ongoing for the department’s budget and in the office of the Vice President.
Meanwhile, Raoul Danniel Abellar Manuel is a Filipino youth activist and politician. He is the representative of Kabataan Party-list. In the plenary session, he raises concerns about the confidential and intelligence funds. Given his background, this is actually not a surprise.
The DepEd Secretary’s Answers
VP Sara Duterte answers Kabataan Rep. Manuel, with regards to the P2.21-B 2023 budget of the Office of the Vice President (OVP) plus the confidential intelligence funds for the Department of Education point blank. She said that sexual grooming, terrorism, recruitment of insurgents, and many more can’t be addressed properly without proper intelligence findings and surveillance data. That would definitely put a stop to the leftist illegal activities.
