E. Visayas educ exec bags int’l award anew

TACLOBAN CITY—The Department of Education’s regional director in Eastern Visayas has won another international education award in India.

Dr. Luisa Bautista-Yu received the Education Leadership Award in this year’s  World Education Congress in Mumbai last June 23.

During the two-day congress, participants also discussed evolving trends in education where they examined both modern and traditional knowledge systems, along with partnerships among institutions in various countries around the globe.

In 2015, Yu also received the prestigious Albert Shanker Education Awards named after the legendary American education leader Albert Shanker during the Education International’s 7th World Congress in Ottawa, Canada.

The awarding body recognized Yu’s leadership and commitment to the education sector particularly in her efforts to rebuild the schools after the devastation from super typhoon “Yolanda” in  November 2013.

The typhoon hit over 25,000 teachers and employees and more than 676,000 learners.

“Amidst numerous problems is the challenge for us…but we made it due to the support of our benefactors,” Yu earlier said.
