SAN ISIDRO, Northern Samar––Presumptive vice president and outgoing Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio announced that she is “ready to rumble” and “excited” about her impending position as education secretary.

Duterte-Carpio, who visited San Isidro town on May 14, said she was happy that incoming president Ferdinand Marcos Jr. entrusted to her the education department.

“I am just waiting for the proclamation of winners in Congress and the transition. By June 30, I am ready to rumble,” she said in an interview.

“We were actually both excited because educating our young people is very important for the progress and development of our nation,” she added.

FEATURED STORIES

Duterte-Carpio said education is one of the priorities of presumptive president Marcos.

She allayed some fears that under her watch, the DepEd will do some “historical revision,” saying they are not historians but would prioritize giving students quality education and improving the living condition of the teachers.
