Amid reports of alleged extravagant and unnecessary trainings and seminars and other planning and assessment activities being conducted across the country, the Department of Education (DepEd) stood firm on its commitment to provide its approximately 900,000 teachers and 65,000 personnel with the needed training and development programs for their personal and professional growth.
While DepEd’s resident auditor stated in its observation report that around P312.1 million was spent on trainings, conventions, and seminar workshops hosted by DepEd Central Office from January to December 2017, the Department underscores that the amount is equivalent to only 7.5% of its P4B annual budget for training and development programs.
The Department likewise responded to the report that the said activities were “conducted in lavish resorts and tourist spot locations,” emphasizing that DepEd strictly adheres to the allowed daily training budget for each person which shall not exceed P2,000. The amount already includes board and lodging, training fees, cost of handouts, supplies, materials, meals/snacks, and all other related training expenses.
“Budget estimates are strictly in accordance with existing budgeting, accounting, procurement, and auditing rules and regulations,” DepEd pointed out in its response.
The said training programs are conducted in various locations all over the country to cater to the Department’s teaching and non-teaching personnel from its 47,000 schools in 223 schools divisions and 16 regions.
“The report concluded that all training activities were done in lavish venues when the location or venue of the activity happened to be in a tourist destination,” Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones mentioned.
The selection of venues and facilities is approved only when it adheres to existing policies and guidelines on procurement, and with consideration to the need for prudence and economy in government service, suitability to the nature of activity, accessibility to the participants, and safety and security in the proposed location, among others.
Finally, the Education chief also issued Office Order No. 2018-093 dated October 2018 entitled, “Venue of Activities of the Department of Education Central Office,” which directs all DepEd units to exercise prudence, economy, and reasonableness in choosing venues for trainings/workshops.
The order further instructs all units of the Central Office to conduct internal office activities within the Central Office premises only. If not feasible, conduct of such activity in another venue shall require strong justification.

Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones on Wednesday set the record straight on the alleged deficiencies in the Department’s physical accomplishments vis-à-vis targets during an organizational meeting convened by the Senate Committee on Basic Education, Arts, and Culture for the 18th
The Education chief explained that the original target of 47,000 classrooms for 2018 was revised to 28,170 due to the increased costing of the modified calamity-resilient school building designs.
While only 11 classrooms were fully completed as of December 31, 2018, 27,469 are ongoing constructions, 16,936 are for mobilization, and 8,749 are under procurement. Following the Department’s timelines, around 11,826 are expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
While project completion has not been reached within the year in certain major items, these are mostly already obligated but completion spills over to the succeeding fiscal year.
“Nonetheless, if we show related information such as ongoing implementation, we may have a fairer picture,” the Secretary shared.
Some of the issues encountered in the timely implementation of projects were attributed to procurement delays and contract implementation lags, as well as securing building and occupancy permits which was initially not part of the budget.
To address this, DepEd and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)—the engineering arm of the government and the implementing agency of the School Building Program—conducted inter-agency convergence meetings to resolve the issue.
“The Senate is fully aware that the Department does not build the buildings and that the money does not go to us,” Briones emphasized, pointing out that the DPWH is in charge of the construction and completion of school buildings, and that “these are the subject of continuing operational reforms.”
Moreover, during the harmonization meeting in the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), the DPWH agreed to timely submit financial and physical accomplishment reports to DepEd.

Department of Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones on Tuesday welcomed the support of several legislators who have expressed their intent to help address gaps and push for reforms in the education sector amid the challenges faced by the agency.
During the Department’s organizational meeting with the House of Representatives’ Committee on Basic Education and Culture, led by Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo, the Secretary apprised members with the Commission on Audit’s observations and the Department’s responses and actions, and called for a review of laws that impact DepEd’s delivery of quality basic education.
“We committed that we will submit a report, and today we are submitting a full report on each of the 23 findings of COA. At the same time, Mr. Chair, since the legislature looks at the policies of government, perhaps it is time to ask several policy questions that you may want to consider not only for education but for governance as well,” the Education chief stated.
Aside from the Department’s earlier push for the review of the procurement law and the book development law, DepEd also secured the support of several legislators in addressing perennial concerns on the special hardship allowance, teachers’ compensation, special education fund, and the strengthening of complementarity between the private and public sectors in education.
The Secretary reiterated her support for an equitable and sustainable salary increase for government employees, which include public school teachers. In the Lower House, 36 bills have been filed in support of the call for additional compensation and benefits for public school teachers.
She further reported that the Department is looking into how to increase benefits of teachers without creating disparities across the civil service and is proposing the creation of positions for Teachers IV, V, VI, and VII to enable teachers to move to higher positions. She also gave her support for bills that will pave the way for higher teaching supplies allowance and asked the committee to consider the holistic approach on this.
The Education chief likewise acknowledged and conveyed the Department’s appreciation and support for the nine new bills that will improve DepEd’s current Special Education (SPED) Program through the institutionalization of inclusive education for children and youth with special needs.
The DepEd similarly welcomed Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Raymund Villafuerte’s motion to list and revisit “unfunded and underfunded” education-related laws that effectively leave the Department unable to fully implement these measures.
“Over the years, DepEd and the Congress have been working on measures to augment the income of teachers. DepEd is also working with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Government Service Insurance System to capacitate teachers on personal financial management,” Briones emphasized.
Finally, when asked about the bills on the Reserved Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), the Secretary emphasized the inclusion of the following priority concerns in implementation: inclusion of patriotism, nationalism, and values; Filipino citizenship, civic duty, and discipline; respect for human and civil rights, rule of law, and law enforcement; critical thinking and leadership; disaster preparedness and response, rescue, and first aid; anti-drug abuse; and strict adherence to the Child Protection Policy, Anti-Hazing Law, and Anti-Bullying Policy.
The Education chief signified her commitment to work with the Congress in promoting the social and economic welfare of teachers and in improving the Filipinos’ access to quality basic education.
