Escobedo, who also oversees the DepEd Employees Association Coordinating Office (DEACO), underscored priority for employee welfare through the creation of an Online Helpdesk, where Department employees, unions, and cooperatives can seek assistance in resolving various relevant matters in response to the health situation. Escobedo said that through DO No. 3, Series of 2021, Child Protection Unit along with the Child Rights Education Desk were created to further strengthen the Department’s policies and commitments towards child protection. “We have capacity-building efforts and evaluation studies, skills enhancement of the personnel and training them to be more effective in their respective tasks crucial to the implementation of child protection program and policies,” Escobedo said. Likewise, DepEd also provided legislative support for child rights through the introduction of Senate and House Bills, implementation of laws relative to child protection, and policy development on promoting Child Protection in schools. Escobedo mentioned that partnerships with Stairway Foundation Inc., Facebook Philippines, and Social Watch Philippines, serve as a “manifestation of the dedication of both the public and private sectors to assert child rights.” He also informed the completion of the Comprehensive Strategic Plan for Child Protection in Schools and Other Learning Environments for 2022-2024.
