The University of Makati President Elyxzur Ramos attended the second Congressional Commission on Education (EDCOM 2) meeting with other committee members, Senators, and Representatives. EDCOM comes up with policies and recommendations to help improve education in the country.
EDCOM 2 or The Second Congressional Commission on Education is a national commission tasked to undertake a comprehensive national assessment and evaluation of the performance of the Philippine education sector.
Republic Act 11899 was passed into law in July 2022, creating EDCOM II, with the mandate of conducting a “comprehensive national assessment and evaluation of the performance of the Philippine education sector for the purpose of recommending transformative, concrete and targeted reforms in the sector with the end in view of making the Philippines globally competitive in both education and labor markets” in the next three years, from 2023 to 2025.
EDCOM II follows in the footsteps of the First Congressional Commission on Education, established by a Joint Resolution of the Eighth Philippine Congress on June 17, 1990. The findings from EDCOM I answered the need to make the Philippine Education Sector more responsive, efficient, equitable, competent, and effective.
