The theme “Unity in Diversity: Quality Education for All” is the underlying philosophy of education in the present times as it recognizes all students and learners in their uniqueness, different circumstances and challenges and varying needs. Schools play important roles in implementing a curriculum that promotes equality and appreciation for ethnic/ race, cultural, language, religious and gender disparities; that despite all these, students and learners are encouraged and engaged to learn.
Teachers are key to eliminating relationship barriers that come in the form of discrimination, complacency, lack of concern, ridicule, even blindness and insensitivity to people’s conditions. Students and learners are motivated to foster their own physical and emotional well– being and become pro– development . The school environment provides opportunities for self– discovery, development of full potential and positive attitude. There is a balance between academic proficiency and soft skills. Intelligent learners who possess the right attitude, exuding respect and love towards other and concern for the environment propel the Department of Education to promote inclusivity through inclusive education.
The Schools Division Office is performing its roles– mainly on program implementation for development interventions for teachers and student/ learners; technical assistance to schools and on partnership with stakeholders who generously provide for the education of our Mandaluyong students/ learners. The stakeholders include among others, of Offices of the Mayor and Congresswoman whose education agenda is very much felt in the services and resources provided to public schools in the City of Mandaluyong. We give due credit heads in Elementary, Secondary and Integrated schools.
Well– grounded graduates and progressive learners inspire us in our work. We are guaranteed of potential/ future leaders in the local, ASEAN and global communities .
