2014 Christmas Message of DepED Secretary Br. Armin Luistro
A Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!
This year has not been without its challenges and as I address you this season, I call to mind the many sacrifices we have all had to make to keep our children learning. Whether we are teachers, administrators, school staff, or parents, we have all contributed much by way of our time, dedication, and hard work.
These times have seen direct threats aimed at our students. Violence in schools and the constant possibility of disasters keep us on our toes, firm in our commitment to ensure everyone’s safety within the school community.Read More

Statement of Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC on the revision of the DepEd's Vision, Mission, and Core Values (VMV)
On 4 September 2013, I released DepEd Order No. 36 s. 2013 in order to update the Agency's directions and further strengthen our capacity to fulfill our constitutional mandate. The review of our Vision and Mission was anchored on the Filipino Core Values of Maka-Diyos, Maka-Tao, Makakalikasan and Makabansa as articulated in Section 40, Republic Act 8491.
Recent media reports have mistakenly attributed to me claiming, "the God-loving phrase was removed from the department's vision to be fair to Filipinos who may subscribe to other beliefs and principles". I had not issued any statement to that effect. This attribution is completely false.
Other articles refer to a Christian advocacy group whose spokesperson "aired the group's dissatisfaction over what it believes is a rash decision on DepEd's part that had been influenced by some members of the non-religious sector." Other local news articles referred to a group claiming to have pressured the Department based on an open letter that they posted on 5 February 2013 via their Twitter account. I have not had the occasion to interact with any of these groups on this matter.Read More
