  • a donation of KCFI’s educational videos to DepEd’s 5,000 senior high schools and 1,000 public schools in calamity and conflict areas
  • EduKalidad sa Kalamidad

Rina Lopez Bautista, the president of KCFI, said that she congratulated DepEd “as it takes strides to improve the quality of education in the country.” She added that KCFI was “eager, excited, and hopeful” to reach, teach, and help DepEd improve learning outcomes among Filipino children.

On the part of DepEd, Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said that Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. was “doing very, very important work,” adding that the challenge for the department was “to catch up with what is happening in knowledge.” Briones also said that students should be prepared to deal with the challenge to be able to differentiate between what was “probably alarmist analysis vis-à-vis critical thinking.”
