MANILA, Philippines – On November 3 and 4, education stakeholders from the government, the private sector, and civil society will gather for the Education Summit 2016 to be held at the SMX Mall of Asia. The summit will focus on crafting the education agenda of the Duterte administration.

The summit is co-organized by the Department of Education (DepEd), the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

Scheduled speakers include Senator Paolo Benigno Aquino IV, Education Secretary Leonor Briones, CHED Chairperson Patricia Licuanan, and TESDA Director General Guiling Mamondiong.
