Wanted: Education Reform Volunteers!

Ang Edukasyon Tungo sa Kaunlaran (E2K) is a national movement that aims to improve the quality of basic education in the Philippines. E2K is currently led by distinguished individuals in the field of education reform namely, Ramon Magsaysay Awardee Mayor Jesse Robredo of Naga City, Fr. Ben Nebres, S.J. of Ateneo de Manila, Dr. Milwida Guevara of Synergeia Foundation and former DepEd Usec. Mike Luz. One of our major initiatives right now is the development of a Public School Teachers Privilege Card . As we all know, our public school teachers are one of the most important human resources of our nation since they are tasked to prepare our future generation, yet, despite this fact they are also one of the most neglected. Many public school teachers in the country have to live on a monthly take home salary of only P 3, 000.00. Thus, it is no wonder that some of them do not anymore focus on teaching well but resort to doing other activities such as selling products to students during class time. It is with this in mind that E2K hopes to develop a privilege card that would provide public school teachers with discounts to various establishments including groceries, drug stores and bookstores.
    We are now inviting you to help us out in making this project a reality for the more than 400,000 public school teachers all over the country. We hope that you would heed our call in making education work for our future generations! 🙂 If you would accept our invitation to be part of this worthwhile project, please email Mark Ruiz at   ruizmark@gmail.com or Laila Deles at lailadeles@gmail.com .
         Thank you for your time and on behalf of our many public school teachers, thank you as well for helping make their lives better!
