The Department of Education (DepEd) has moved the date of the National Summit on the Rights of the Child in Education from November 12 to 13 to November 23 to 24.
The two-day summit, which is part of the education bureau’s activities for National Children’s Month, will be discussing rights-based education (RBE) in line with its 2020 theme of “Isulong! Karapatan ng Bawat Bata sa Edukasyon sa Panahon ng COVID-19”.
It follows in the wake of its 2019 First National Summit on the Rights of the Child in Education, which had the theme of “Bata, Bata: Karapatan Mo, Tungkulin Ko”, which falls under Republic Act No. 1066 or the “National Children’s Month Act.”
The summit will be conducted online and will be attended by representatives from DepEd, public and private school teachers, parents, as well as students. Other government agencies, organizations, and companies will also be present at the virtual event.
According to DepEd, the summit will create a venue for the attendees to share their thoughts and suggestions as to how to implement rights-based education in both normal times and during extraordinary times as during the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic. Such recommendations must be framed considering the contributions of not just DepEd and the government, but also of society.
A conference prior to the summit will be held to ensure the readiness of students for the event and to get their ideas as to how the activity should be conducted.
