According to Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte, the budget of the Department of Education (DepEd) will give priority to the important sectors that have been determined to be a factor in the nation's lack of high-quality education.

DepEd is currently preparing the budget proposal for 2023. “Sa budget po, ang ating priorities ay naka-base po sa Basic Education Development Plan o BEDP 2030 (In the budget, our priorities are based on the Basic Education Development Plan or BEDP 2030),” she explained in an interview on Thursday, July 14

The BEDP 2030 is the DepEd's first long-term plan for basic education, and it was created under the direction of former Education Secretary Leonor Briones. It covers formal education from five to 18 years old as well as non-formal education for children and adults.

Phase 1 of the 302-page BEDP document, which is fully in line with the Sustainable Development Goals 2030, will concentrate on the immediate effects of Covid-19 on learning and participation, while Phase 2 will concentrate on maintaining the gains and evaluating programs. The BEDP document will be implemented from 2020 to 2030.

According to Duterte, the comprehensive plan outlined the "pillars" contributing to the nation's lack of high-quality education.

“So ang atin pong pag draft ng budget ngayon ay naka base po dun sa mga pillars na sinasabi nila ay problema natin sa basic education (So our budget is drafted based on the pillars which they say is our problem in basic education),” she added.

The suggestions of the Department of Health (DOH) in light of the Covid-19 outbreak will be taken into account as the DepEd drafts its budget for the upcoming fiscal year, according to Duterte.
