 Marcos wants the Department of Education to emphasize on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

President-elect Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. is committed to address the lag in research and development in the fields of science and technology, engineering, and mathematics or STEM.


He issued the statement over the weekend as he acknowledged that the Philippines is being left behind and has "a lot to catch up" in the said field of study.

He vowed to put the Department of Education (DepEd) to task to address the issue.

"Unfortunately, our educational attainment when it comes to mathematics and the sciences, we do not do very well as compared to other countries," Marcos Jr. said in a video posted on his official Facebook page last Saturday night.

He said that his administration will focus on STEM because "we have a lot to catch up on."

Marcos Jr. emphasized that the country must learn to adapt as the worldwide economy is "very largely technical-based, based on science, and technical innovations."
