MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) will be in “good hands” once presumptive Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio heads the agency, Education Secretary Leonor Briones said in a statement on Wednesday.

Briones said she welcomed the announcement of presumptive President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. that he would appoint Duterte-Carpio as DepEd secretary.
