This program is the DepEd response to the desire of IP communities for an education that is responsive to their context, respects their identities, and promotes the value of their traditional knowledge, skills, and other aspects of their cultural heritage. Specifically, it aims to improve the appropriateness and responsiveness of the IP curriculum, capacity building for teachers, managers, and personnel and development of culturally appropriate learning resources in public schools with IP enrollees as well as to address the learning needs of those IP learners who are outside the formal education system.
