Bangon Batangas! Briones visits Taal evacuees
She ain’t too old to work.
Education Secretary Leonor Briones is 79 years old but remains one of the indefatigable Cabinet members of President Duterte.
Briones has visited evacuees, including young students displaced by the Taal Volcano eruption in Batangas on Friday. She made the trip to Batangas after attending the “Duterte Legacy” campaign launch at the PICC early that day.
“After the emergency meeting, DepEd visited Bauan Technical High School, one of the schools that were used as evacuation centers for those who were affected by the Taal Eruption. Bangon Batangas!” a Facebook post of the DepEd chief read.
Earlier, Briones appealed to local government units not to use school buildings as evacuation centers because it disrupts the classes of students. At present, classes remain suspended in 120 schools in Batangas and 168 schools in CALABARZON.
