EDUCATION Secretary Sara Duterte-Carpio sought protection for teachers who will serve during the 2023 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
“Bilang Secretary of Education, nais kong masiguro na mabibigyan ng angkop na proteksyon at suporta ang ating mga guro na nagsasakripisyo para maisagawa ng matagumpay ang halalan sa ating bansa,” she said in a post.
The BSKE is set on October 30.
“Hindi po mangyayari ang isang eleksiyon kung walang mga guro,” Duterte-Carpio said.
“Nagsisilbi ang mga guro sa eleksiyon sa kabila ng mga panganib na hinaharap nila. Wala akong natatandaan na eleksyon na walang insidente ng pananakot, pananakit, pang-aatake sa mga guro at sa kanilang mga pamilya,” the Vice President added.
She issued the statement during the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between Commission on Elections Chairperson George Erwin Gracia and Public Attorney’s Office head Persida Acosta in Manila.
