There is something new to learn about LEARN

23 April 2024

First, it is an organization of like-minded local leaders whose vision for education is as long and enduring as its name. LEARN stands for “Learning Environment Accessible in Rebuilding the Nation.”  

Second, there is nothing typical about the LEARN Council in terms of its broad membership which compares with the focused, area-centric representation of a standard  “regional education council.” It has for its members the Local Chief Executives from across Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, National Capital Region, Eastern Visayas and Surigao del Norte.  

Third, because of this more expanded and diversified structure, the LEARN Council rises with a resolute and determined energy and passion,  allowing it to joyfully experience a kind of  “rebirth” that exemplifies its resurgence towards the opening of a new chapter in its existence.

 Its readiness and wherewithal to lead LGUs in the implementation of education governance programs extends beyond a renewal of faith in its mission but more of a strengthening of vigor and dedication to what its name is hoping to achieve.

Finally, the renaissance of the LEARN Council promises to be a living proof of  the capability and leadership of its officers and members to improve the reading proficiency of children, share and adopt best practices in education governance and work to encourage more LGUs to be part of LEARN.  

Mayor Agatha Paula Cruz of Guiguinto, Bulacan is the new Chairperson of the LEARN Council.  Other newly-elected officers are:  

Mayor Alfredo Coro II of Del Carmen, Surigao del Norte – Vice-Chairperson

Mayor Wes Gatchalian of Valenzuela City – Secretary

Mayor Joy Belmonte of Quezon City – Treasurer

Mayor Francis Garcia of Balanga City, Bataan – Auditor

Mayor Josell Aimee Vistan of Plaridel, Bulacan – Communication Officer

In its two meetings this  year, the LEARN Council has accomplished quite a feat. It reviewed its by-laws and analyzed the education performance of members towards solidifying their goal and success metrics as an education council. 

Indeed, we can trust that the LEARN Council is relentless to put education of our children on the right and more progressive track.
