MISO 04.08.2015

With the promulgation on 11 August 2001 of Republic Act 9155, also known as “An Act Instituting a Framework of Governance for Basic Education, Establishing Authority and Accountability, Renaming the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) as a Department of Education (DepEd) and for other Purposes,” cultural education was effectively reaffirmed as an integral part of basic education but administrative supervision of cultural agencies formerly attached to DECS was transferred to the NCCA.

PCEP envisions A NATION OF CULTURALLY LITERATE AND EMPOWERED FILIPINOS by ensuring that culture is the core and foundation of education, governance, and sustainable development.  It seeks to develop among Filipinos greater awareness, understanding, and appreciation of their culture and arts, towards the evolution of a consciousness that will improve the quality of their lives. It was designed to make cultural education accessible to all sectors of Philippine society, particularly the youth, teachers, artists and cultural workers, officials and employees of the government, members of the media, and civil society.
