Dr. Mira D. Sinco, Foundation University president, assured visiting Department of Education Asst. Sec. Jesus Mateo and DepEd regional planning officer Dr. Milagros Gabia, of the University’s support for the move to create a basic education sector that is capable of attaining the country’s Education for All Objectives by the year 2015.

In a forum held at the James Herring Audio Visual Room last Sept. 11, the DepEd officials presented the Besra which is viewed by top educators as promised for a reformed education. Besra is a package of policy reforms to further accelerate, broaden, deepen and sustain the efforts started by the “Schools First Initiative” program which was conceptualized in 2005.

Dr. Gabia, on the other hand , gave a collective talk about the status of Besra in Region VII and the BESRA Implementation and Accountability Plan for SY 2010- 2011.

The Besra goal is for all persons beyond school-age, regardless of their levels of schooling, to acquire the essential competence to be considered functionally literate in their native tongue, in Filipino or in English.

It also aims for all children aged 6 to enter school ready to learn and prepared to achieve the required competencies from Grade 1 to 3 instruction.

Children aged 6 to 11 should be on track to completing elementary schooling with satisfactory achievement levels at every grade, and all children aged 12 to 15 should be on track to completing secondary schooling with similarly satisfactory achievement levels at every year.

The Besra aims that every community should mobilize all its social, political, cultural and economic resources and capabilities to support the universal attainment of basic education competencies in Filipino and English.
