The Department of Education (DepEd) launched the Basic Education Development Plan 2030 (BEDP 2030) on June 3 to provide a strategic roadmap to improve the delivery and quality of basic education.
BEDP 2030 is the first long-term plan of the Department for basic education, covering formal education from 5 to 18 years old and non-formal education for youth and adults.
The plan aims to continue the goals of the Department for all Filipinos to realize their full potential and contribute meaningfully to a cohesive nation through the protection and promotion of the right to education. BEDP 2030 is also designed to address the immediate impacts of the pandemic on learning, participation, and education delivery, address the remaining access gaps, improve education quality and build resilience.
“BEDP is part of the administration’s efforts to ensure that the call for improving the access and quality of basic education will continue as these are the challenges that were identified by various researches. BEDP 2030 was anchored on the Sulong Edukalidad framework to harmonize the strategies within DepEd,” Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones noted.
The launch was attended by key DepEd officials, Education Forum for Quality Education (Educ Forum) representatives, and partners, including the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd), UNICEF, and SEAMEO INNOTECH.
“In this launch, we will discuss the Department’s blueprint for the next decade in formulating, implementing, coordinating, monitoring, evaluating, and supervising policies, plans, programs, and projects to further improve the basic education and the experience of learners in the learning environment,” Undersecretary and Chief of Staff Nepomuceno Malaluan said.
He also emphasized that the BEDP 2030 will be a living document subject to continuing review and refinement by the incoming administration.
