A hundred days before the May 9 elections, an education coalition has launched BET (Boto sa Edukasyon at Trabaho) sa Balota, a voters’ guide to candidates’ education efforts.
BET sa Balota aims to inform the public about the candidates’ initiatives, stances, and platforms specific to improving the quality of education for all Filipinos.
Candidates will be evaluated based on the 10-point education agenda of the Education Nation, a coalition of organizations and individuals that aims to elect leaders who will put quality education for all at the heart of the government’s development agenda.
Expect to see BET sa Balota’s posts on various social media channels between now and election day, where voters can see what candidates have said so far about education, what they actually did, and the status of their promises.
For the next three months, EdukNaman’s social media pages will feature Ansabe?, Anyare?, Ano raw? Ano na?, a series of presidential and senatorial candidates’ past pronouncements and actions, assessment of their education commitments, stances, and plans or the lack thereof, and monthly progress reports on education issues.
