The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines (ULAP) signed an advocacy agreement with Ayala Foundation Inc. (AFI) for its Text2Teach Program, which will expand to 600 more schools through local government partnerships in 2013-2014. The signing was held on June 28, 2013 in Makati City, with Gov. Alfonso Umali Jr. (ULAP President) and Ms. Lulli Herras-de Leon (AFI President) as main signatories.
Text2Teach, a key education program of AFI, develops videos for curriculum and pedagogical enhancement of teaching Math, Science, English, and Values Education in public elementary schools. Text2Teach, with counterparts with local governments and local Department of Education officers, provides technology transfer, teachers' capacity building, and impact monitoring and evaluation.
ULAP will advocate Text2Teach as part of its ongoing convergence initiatives to bridge private and CSO programs to willing and capable LGUs, in order to accelerate and mainstream the achievement of better education outcomes in the local levels.
