President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Secretary Esperanza Cabral of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) wield paint rollers as they join the Serbisyo Muna Caravan in Mandaluyong City where they painted a school building and distributed school supplies. Also yesterday, President Arroyo reminded national and local officials to ensure the availability to the public of school supplies at stable prices, as the nation prepares for the start of school year on Monday. Other areas of concern being monitored by the Chief Executive are vehicular and pedestrian traffic, peace and order, flood control, weather forecasting, lack of classrooms, textbooks, hiring of new teachers, salaries of school personnel, and improvements in the public school system.
