The Local School Board of Pandan Municipality in Antique Province sat down for business to discuss two important agenda items – the education performance of children and the SEF budget. DepEd District Supervisory and LSB co-chair, Dr. Condez, presented the performance indicators of schools and noted the increasing number of children who are non-readers or frustration readers. This bothered Acting Mayor Raymund Gumboc and the rest of the LSB. They decided they had to do something to help children read better. They knew they could do this through the SEF budget that they were about to deliberate. Civil society and private sector representatives in the LSB said that it is important to bring back the love for reading among children.
