One factor for advancement is the stakeholders, they play a vital role in educating the students as what had been said “It takes a village to educate a child”, It takes “US, WE” to help a child develop into full potential and whole rounded individuals.
But who are the stakeholders? They are the people who devote their time, energy, effort, talent and skills in helping the school as the institution and the students as the main beneficiary of education.
They are the administrators, the teachers, the community workers and servants both public and private, group or individual, and the parents. These group of people undertake responsibilities to ensure that the goals, mission and vision of the Department of Education be realized in the most positive and progressive state. It is essential that every stakeholder must have a representative to voice out their ideas in a manner that is appropriate for everyone.
With these responsibilities stakeholders must work hand in hand towards progressive and prolific environment inside and outside the school. After all, we stakeholders’have mission to ensure that our children have a better if not the best future. One that will make us proud and happy to see even in the hereafter.
