The Department of Education has expressed its gratitude to Broadway star Lea Salonga who apologized following a misunderstanding about a learning module associating tattoos with criminals.
In a statement, the DepEd said that their organization is an institution mandated to deliver quality, equitable, culture-based, and complete basic education, values and promotes our nation’s arts and culture. And in this line, they are “grateful” that the 49-year-old star “acknowledged” their “sincere explanation” and “apologized” for her initial reaction regarding a Self-Learning Module (SLM) erratum that tackled a cultural topic.
It continued how both of them are one in giving good education for Filipino learners and in reminding the public to be wary of misinformation on module contents.
“We hope that these incidents will remind us to always confirm module errors with concerned DepEd field offices. We assure you that the Department will take the necessary measures to revise the errors found in our learning materials,” the statement read.
