The Department of Education Vision
“We dream of Filipinos…”
Our vision is more than just the end-goal of a plan. It is a dream, a wish, a prayer – what we fervently hope for and what we diligently work towards. By envisioning we begin to fulfill our mandate and responsibilities stated in Republic Act No. 9155 and do our duty as Filipinos.
“…who passionately love their country…”
We want to develop learners who are true citizens and patriots, who have a strong desire to serve their country and work for its betterment. As DepEd, how do we promote passionate love of country?
“…and whose values and competencies…”
We need to do two things: inculcate the values deemed necessary and
desirable and train students to make sure they have the necessary
“…enable them to realize their full potential and contribute meaningfully to building the nation…”
Because as a learner-centered institution we want them to know how to improve themselves and realize their dreams, while keeping in mind the state
of their country and the welfare of their people. In turn, Filipinos realize their potential, not for selfish gain, but to contribute to building a nation every
Filipino deserves. A closer look at realizing our DepEd Vision Section 17 under Article II of the 1987 Constitution mandates the State to
give priority to education, science and technology, arts, culture, and sports to foster patriotism and nationalism, accelerate social progress, human liberation, and development.
“As a learner-centered public institution…”
The Department of Education is the government agency that formulates, implements, and coordinates policies, plans, programs, and projects in areas
of formal and non-formal basic education. In all our decisions and actions, we put the Filipino learner first.
“..the Department of Education continuously improves itself..”
Just like our students, we do not stop learning. We constantly seek to be better, both as an institution and as individuals. How can we serve our learners better?
“..to better serve its stakeholders.”
Through time, our learners have changing needs and the Department must adapt and be better to serve them better.
The Department of Education Mission
To protect and promote the right of every Filipino to quality, equitable, culture-based, and complete basic education where:
Students learn in a child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe, and motivating environment.
Teachers facilitate learning and constantly nurture every learner.

Family, community, and other stakeholders are actively engaged and share responsibility for developing life-long learners.
Core Values of the Department of Education
Department of Education Mandate
The Department of Education was established through the Education Decree of 1863 as the Superior Commission of Primary Instruction under a Chairman. The Education agency underwent many reorganization efforts in the 20th century in order to better define its purpose vis a vis the changing administrations and charters. The present day Department of Education was eventually mandated through Republic Act 9155, otherwise known as the Governance of Basic Education act of 2001 which establishes the mandate of this agency.
The Department of Education (DepEd) formulates, implements, and coordinates policies, plans, programs and projects in the areas of formal and non-formal basic education. It supervises all elementary and secondary education institutions, including alternative learning systems, both public and private; and provides for the establishment and maintenance of a complete, adequate, and integrated system of basic education relevant to the goals of national development.
