103rd LCC Meeting

The 103rd LCC Meeting was held last June 29, 2010 at SEAMEO INNOTECH, presided over by DepEd Undersecretary Ramon C. Bacani. The translated definition of functional literacy and its indicators into eight Philippine languages and one dialect were presented by the translators and discussed by the Council.

Dr. Lourdes R. Quisumbing of Miriam Clollege  presented a song on Functional Literacy which she herself composed. The lyrics of the song correspond to the five strands of functional literacy. The same song will be launched during the National Literacy Conference and Awards in September 2010. The song was dedicated to the late Dr. Minda C. Sutaria, Consultant of LCC.  

Also tacked during the meeting were the results of FLEMMS 2008 presented by Ms. Benedicta Yabut of NSO, and the draft Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) presented by Mr. Nemesio O. Malatamban, III of the House of Representatives.
