The Governance of Basic Education Act of 2001 (RA 9155) mandates that the Department of Education (DepEd) enact policies and mechanisms through which the delivery of quality basic education may be continuously improved. Chapter I, Section 7 (5) includes among the responsibilities of DepEd across all governance levels the undertaking of “educational research and studies’’ that will serve as one of the bases for necessary reforms and policy development.
