which lays the foundation on which
subsequent learning can be based. It

DepED-BALS' Mobile
Teacher Program
 seeks to improve the quality of life in
communities by raising the level of
literacy in target areas. Target areas
for this program are those with high
illiteracy rate, a huge population of
out-of-school youth, and Strong
Republic Schools (SRS) where

 Unlike regular education where
students go to school, mobile teachers
seek out the learners. Learning
sessions, with the aid of learning
materials that are user-friendly and
indigenous, are held in Community
Learning Centers (CLCs) which may
be a barangay hall, church, factory,
reading center, or a house.
 There are 1,381 mobile teachers to
date. These mobile teachers are
deployed to deprived, depressed,
and underserved (DDU) communities
all over the country where literacy is
most wanting. DDU communities are
determined by the mobile teachers
themselves who go from house to
house to determine the number of
non-readers in each household.
 “Our public school teachers are doing
an outstanding job in providing
education for our children despite the
difficulty of accessibility to schools in
some areas. They are virtually
heroes, crossing mountains and
rivers just to provide basic education
to out-of-school youth and adults
who still want to learn.“

- “President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo”

"Our mobile teachers'
contribution to alternative
education is, indeed,
invaluable. They serve as
bridges for the department to
reach out to all kinds of
