NAKATANGGAP ng libreng financial literacy materials ang Department of Education na gagamitin upang makatulong sa mga guro sa pampublikong paaralan.

Ito na ang ikalawang set ng financial literacy video na ibinigay ng Banco de Oro Foundation at Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas sa DepEd Central Office.

“This is huge challenge for us. For me, we can talk about financial literacy, we can talk about money in a very rational way, the way economists do it. But we will have to look at the sociology, the cultural side of it. What makes people spend more than their income? Why do people save? Why is it that others save and others don’t?” tanong ni Education Sec. Leonor Briones.

Ang mga financial video ay bahagi ng nilagdaang Memorandum of Agreement ng DepEd, BDO at BSP noong Mayo 28, 2018.

Ang unang set ng financial videos ay tungkol sa why’s and how’s ng pagtitipid. Ito ay in-upload DepEd online learning portal upang makuha ng mga guro at magamit sa kanilang pagtuturo.

Ang ikalawang batch ay tungkol naman sa budgeting and financial management, pamumuhunan, paano makakaiwas sa mga scams, pag-utang at pagnenegosyo.

“But the point, however, is to change history. We have a history of not saving, we have a history of overspending, we have a history of ’bonggaciouness’,” ani Briones. “But the point is not only to know history—our history of being spendthrift, of being financially illiterate. The point is to change it.”
