THE Department of Education (DepEd), is holding a series of interactive mall exhibits to raise awareness about its K to 12 basic education curriculum reform program dubbed GO! Education (Greater Opportunities! Education).
DepEd has partnered with the Australian Agency for International Development, United States Agency for International Development and the Philippine Business for Education for the exhibit which will also visit SM Davao, SM Cebu, SM Manila, SM Bacoor, SM Pampanga, SM Iloilo and SM Mall of Asia.
The exhibit is divided into three walk-through sections. Go! Teachers! tackles the problems, existing policies and solutions to produce highly competent teachers; Go! K to 12! offers a look at the new basic education curriculum and what it aims to achieve while Go! Classroom! talks about addressing the problem of classroom shortages, other school infrastructure and sanitation facilities.
