DepEd opens exhibit for indigenous learners.

Department of Education (Philippines)
In observance of the National Indigenous Peoples’ Month,  the Philippines’ Response to Indigenous Peoples’ and Muslim Education (PRIME) Program is sponsoring a month-long exhibit Bunsód: Katutubong Dunong Pagtuturo Pagkatuto which explores innovations in education that target indigenous peoples (IPs).
The Department of Education, with assistance from the Australian government, is making quality education more accessible to indigenous people through PRIME, an initiative that addresses the learning needs of school children belonging to minority groups.
Supported by the Australian Assistance for International Development (AusAid) DepEd is currently developing learning materials, training teachers and adapting the curriculum to make teaching and learning culturally-sensitive and relevant to IPs and Muslim school children.
Education Secretary Armin Luistro said the event also coincides with the celebration of the signing of the Indigenous Peoples Education Policy Framework (DepED Order 62, s.2011).
Guest of Honor Ms. Viel Aquino–Dee, President of the Assisi Development Foundation, commended Luistro for initiating actions aimed towards the delivery of relevant and quality basic education services to indigenous learners. She emphasized the importance of education in protecting the rights of people belonging to indigenous communities.
For his part, Education Assistant Secretary Reynaldo Laguda stressed that IPs are also members of the Philippine community who are entitled to the same services like any other  Filipino. Laguda also reminded DepED personnel that they are here not merely to fill-in numbers or to reach targets but to serve the people.
Bunsód will be on display for the whole month of October at the main lobby of Rizal Building in DepED Complex, Pasig.
