Senate brings GOOD NEWS to DepEd

Good news for the Department of Education as the Senate gives additional budget allocation for the department in 2020.

“We’re very happy, although we have yet to receive any official document, that DepEd will have an additional P6.5 billion,” DepEd Undersecretary for Finance Service Annalyn Sevilla said in an interview. She also pointed out that it will consist of P4.5 billion for the restoration of the budget for the Senior High School Voucher Program and P1.5 billion for the “Last Mile Schools” Program.

“So we’re preparing for that but even before the plenary hearing, we already got the good news from Senator Sonny Angara who is leading the committee on finance,” Sevilla said explaining that they were scheduled for a plenary hearing this coming November 19.
