Revolutionizing Educational Reform

DepEd Secretary Br. Armin Luistro as tasked to introduce the guest speaker, Senator Franklin Drilon gave his message first. He told everyone that to revolutionize education in the country teachers should move as one and to transform the country, there should be a hero and the teachers themselves are already the living heroes.

He mentioned the living heroes like teacher Lorna and teacher Evangeline who have spent their time and efforts even beyond their call of duty to save their learners during the calamity that visited their place recently as an act of heroism.

However, he clarified his poinr that living heroism is not only spent during natural calamities, but teaching the pupils of their day-to-day lesson in their classroom is already an act of living heroism.

He appreciated the efforts made by the teachers everyday as they teach their student especially to eliminate "illiteracy and ignorance" from their learners who in return could attain greatness among themselves as well as with others.
