The resignation of Vice President Sara Duterte as Secretary of the Department of Education will hopefully lead to the solution of the alarming crisis in Philippine education.

No less than Vice President Duterte herself said that her resignation is “dala ng tunay na malasakit para sa ating mga guro at kabataang Pilipino” (due to my genuine concern for our teachers and the Filipino youth), which means that her incumbency was a liability to teachers and students.

It is hoped that her replacement will come from the ranks of experienced and dedicated educators who can efficiently steer and professionally manage the educational system of the country.

Duterte’s departure from a prime position in the President’s Cabinet ends with finality the increasingly tenuous partisan relations between the Duterte and Marcos political power blocs. This terminates absolutely the Uniteam.
