To protect and promote the right of every Filipino to quality, equitable, culture-based, and complete basic education where:
Students learn in a child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe, and motivating environment
Teachers facilitate learning and constantly nurture every learner
Administrators and staff, as stewards of the institution, ensure an enabling and supportive environment for effective learning to happen
Family, community, and other stakeholders are actively engaged and share responsibility for developing life-long learners
We dream of Filipinos
who passionately love their country
and whose values and competencies
enable them to realize their full potential
and contribute meaningfully to building the nation.
As a learner-centered public institution,
the Department of Education
continuously improves itself
to better serve its stakeholders.
