by jv Pozorrubio’s Alternative Learning System (originally called Non-Formal Education) is regarded as the only successful ALS in Division II that is fully sponsored and financed by a Local Government Unit. This is according to Dr. Belinda Barrozo, ALS Education Supervisor, in her speech on March 14, 2009 during the ALS Completion Program held at the Benigno V. Aldana National High School PTA-Social Hall. And this is because Pozorrubio ALS is also otherwise referred too as the Art and Emma Project to which the couple had given their personal commitment since former Mayor Artemio Chan was still the chief executive of the town. And now, for SY 2008-2009, Pozorrubio ALS graduates senior citizens. During the completion program wherein Mayor Emma Chan was guest of honor, there were fifteen (15) senior citizens’ Literacy Completers, aside from the sixteen (16) Literacy cum Livelihood Completers, and fourteen (14) Accreditation and Equivalency Completers. Certificates of Appreciaiton were also given to three (3) Outstanding Barangay Captains who were most cooperative in its implementation and most participative in enjoining their kabaranggayan to take advantage of the ALS.
