Gov. Sol set to boost education

Newly elected Gov. Sol Forcadilla-Matugas has lined up appropriate measures designed to improve the delivery of basic education in Surigao del Norte, it was learned here recently.

Matugas, former regional director of the Department of Education (DepEd) which she served for almost 40 years, told local mediamen that she specifically intends to upgrade the quality of pre-school, elementary and secondary education in rural and urban areas and ultimately make local basic education more responsive to the varying needs, conditions and problems of each community.

According to Matugas, pioneer president of the prestigious Association of DepEd Directors (ADD), she has strongly encouraged local government units (LGUs) to establish kindergarten classes in their respective areas to provide necessary early childhood education to young children.

Matugas, who unseated re-electionist Gov. Ace Smith Barbers during the May 10 local elections, stressed that pre-school education provides appropriate mental, social and pedagogical preparation of youngsters for formal education beginning Grade 1 and ultimately ensures their successful completion of the six-year elementary education course.
