Solon Urges VP Sara Duterte To Show Decency, Resign from DepEd Role

SARA DUTERTE – A legislator has called on Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte to step down from her position as the head of the Department of Education (DepEd).

Manila 3rd District Representative Joel Chua has called for Vice President Sara Duterte, who also serves as the Education Secretary, to resign from her position leading the Department of Education (DepEd). According to a report from Inquirer, Chua stressed the importance of accountability from VP Sara and the Duterte family, emphasizing the necessity for decisive action.

In his statement released on Friday, Chua pointed out the inconsistency of VP Sara continuing in her DepEd role while her family confronts the President.

Joel Chua urged Sara Duterte to step down from DepEd, questioning why she maintains the benefits of the position while her family openly challenges the President. Chua encouraged Duterte to take a clear stance instead of trying to navigate between conflicting positions, particularly concerning her apparent alignment with Marcos.

“The Vice President should show some decency by resigning from her DepEd post at the very least. Her family unleashed a barrage of insults and attacks directly to the President and yet she does nothing and is still enjoying the perks of being part of the official family,” the statement read.

“She cannot have the best of both worlds by being a fence sitter while her family and their allies challenge the authority and mandate of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr while having little to show for in terms of substantive results at the Department of Education, where she is Secretary,” it added.

According to the report, Chua also criticized Duterte’s silence on issues like sovereignty in the West Philippine Sea and the effectiveness of DepEd’s educational approaches during the pandemic. He expressed doubts about the efficacy of DepEd’s “catch-up Fridays” and raised concerns about the continued reliance on modules and online classes.

“Learning deficits from the pandemic are worsened by the continuing resort to modules and online classes which were ineffective during the pandemic and are still ineffective now,” Chua said.
