Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MTB MLE) in the Philippines is on its early stage of implementation. It aims to address the issue of language as a barrier in education mainly caused by contents of materials that are unfamiliar to learners. While there are many challenges in the implementation of MTB MLE, the success of this program lies greatly on the teachers who are tasked to carry out the strategies as provided for in RA 10533 or the Enhanced Basic Education Act. This study aimed to evaluate the knowledge on, attitude towards, and practice of MTBLE of Grades 1 and 2 public school teachers of Lupi, Camarines Sur, Philippines. A survey method was employed with 51 randomly selected respondents. The result of the survey was validated through KII, FGDs, and class observation. The KAP of teachers will serve as basis for planning the interventions of DEPED in refining and strengthening its advocacy, communication, and capability building activities for the MTB MLE Program.
