Student Teacher Training is the preparation of an individual to be a professional teacher. This part of training is manifested after the complex nature of the teacher learning process while taking up the pre service education. Individuals who intend to become a teacher are required to fully understand and appreciate the genuine definition of teaching. And as teaching implies, it is the
systematic presentation of facts, ideas, skills, and techniques to the students. Although human beings have survived and evolved as a species partly because of the capacity to share knowledge, teaching as a profession did not emerge until relatively recently in which designated people assumed responsibility for educating the young ones. Teachers are like leaves that flourish everywhere but effective teachers are like fruits, they are rarely found. In view of that, more than knowledge and skills, an effective teacher should be compassionate and understanding. This kind of training inside the pre service education, you will learn the important factors which are part of the components in searching the true meaning of teaching profession. Student Teaching is the foremost and most important step in moving from amateur status on the way to gain the competencies that mark the factual professional status. The true existence of this certain part of the student teacher training is not to be focus only to the perfection itself but of striving for competence. Student teacher training is a time for growing confidence and beginning expertise to get a chance to learn and put the skills on the line of his own classroom.
A TEACHER’S PRAYER
I want to teach my students how-To live this life on earth, To face its struggles and its strife And to improve their worth. Not just the lesson in a book, Or how the rivers flow, But to choose the proper path, Wherever they may go. To understand eternal truth, And know right from wrong, And gather all the beauty of A flower and a song, For if I help the world to grow In wisdom and grace, Then I feel that I have won And I have filled my place. And so I ask your guidance, God That I may do my part, For character and confidence And happiness of heart.
A TEACHER’S PRAYER
Help me to be a fine teacher, to keep peace in the classroom, peace between my students and myself, to be kind and gentle to each and every one of my students. Help me to be merciful to my students, to balance mercy and discipline in the right measure for each student, to give genuine praise as much as possible, to give constructive criticism in a manner that is palatable to my students. Help me to remain conscientious enough to keep my lessons always interesting, to recognize what motivates each of my students, to accept my students' limitations and not hold it against them. Help me not to judge my students too harshly, to be fair to all, to be a good role model, but most of all Lord help me to show your love to all of my students. Amen.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM
The Outreach Program that we held last December 11, 2010 at Rabosna Day Care Center in North Fairview is really a heartwarming activity we did this activity not only because of the Christmas Season, but also as a future professionals it is also our responsibility to share something for the other members of our community. When we got there and the programs are already started we can see the smile in every child that benefited with our little gifts. When I witnessed that I’ve come to realize that I wanted to go back being a child once more because as a child you are free from any problems you have nothing to do but to play, eat, and sleep… I do hope that this child would have a better and brighter future and be able to be a good citizen of our nations.
PROFESSIONAL CAREER PLAN
Presently I am a graduating student at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines Quezon City Campus. At this point I am very happy that finally I almost finished my tertiary level education. I have so many plans but my immediate plan after my
Bachelor’s Degree is to find a job right away weather be it a teaching or office career upon having this I will save money because I want to take the LET exam not more than one year after the graduation and after that I want to enroll immediately my Master’s Degree I want to finished it five years below from the day I graduated from college. I will not let myself to be stocked I want my career to move on I will not stop looking for self improvement because that is one of the philosophy of the teacher to promote continuous education.

All of this will be offered back to him. So help me Lord.

WEEKLY NARRATIVE REPORT
Week 1- November 8-12, 2010 After having my practicum 1 The Observation Participation and Community Immersion here comes the practicum 2 The Student Teaching, this time I don’t feel much of the nervous unlike the first day of my practicum 1 maybe it is because I am still in the university and much of my students are all my students during my practicum 1 the BBTE 1-1, BBTE 2-1 and DOMT the new set of students I have now are the BSBA-HRDM 1-1 & 2-N and BSEM 1-2 so that I don’t have a major adjustment from the professor and to the students. What I have to do is to know2 more my students especially the new class that I have. It is the first week of the second semester I was just introduce by my coordinating teacher to the class which I am going to take my student teaching they are given an assignment for next meeting and for me this practicum 2 is just like a continuation of practicum 1 but this time it is quite harder because I am really the one who will handled the class.
Week 2- November 15-19, 2010 This week is really a start of being a student teacher, wanna know why? Because I enter the class throughout the period all by myself I was kinda shock when the time I am having a discussion as based on the assignment that was given to them I almost lost my patience when there are students who seems like not interested to the lesson and when they are having too much noise. But as much as I can I employ techniques and strategies I
have learned to catch their attention and I know to myself that I should have to exert more effort and energy because it is just the beginning the worst has not yet to come. On the other hand, I am sad because I miss my classmates and friends because they are all having their students teaching outside the campus and we will only see each other every Saturday. I missed our bonding the sharing of stories and experiences with our handled class.
Week 3- November 22-26, 2010 Well, this is an unexpected week for me I only teach my Monday class after my second period class I lost my voice, but the reason of losing my voice is not my teaching load somewhat yes it is, it triggers my bad feeling until I totally got sick I had fever, cough and colds so that the next day up to the end of the week I was absent in the school. I’ll texted my coordinating teacher about what happen to me so they will know the reason of my absences. If possible I really don’t want this to happen because I want to go on with each lesson especially the one that I really prepared and to be practical I missed 12 hours of my students teaching but it’s ok because I am ahead compared to my other classmates because some of them up to this time are not yet start taking their student teaching.
Week 4- November 29- December 3, 2010 This week is purely a classroom discussion in all my class all of us are already acquainted with each other since this is the fourth week we had to go on with our lesson. I started the class by checking their attendance before I go on with our discussion and every after
discussion I’ll give them a short examination just to let me know if they understand our lesson. Week 5- December 6-10, 2010 This week is exactly like the routine what we had last week the continuation and opening of a new discussion in every class and sometimes it depends upon the class situation if I am going to give them an assignment or a quiz just like the normal thing that I used to do just to make sure if they really catch the lesson that we had.
Week 6- December 13-17, 2010 Well, this week is the last school week for this year we can now have our Christmas vacation for the students I’ll give them their Christmas gift hahaha….. their vacation assignments. I can’t stop myself from laughing when I see their reaction they are all making angal but I need to do this vacation should not be an excuse for them not to study they need to work on it so that it will serve as start of our topic when we meet next year. Good luck to all and may we have a prosperous year to come yahoo…..
Week 7- January 3-7, 2011 This is the first school week for 2011, the students are still in the mood of the vacation days but this should not be the reason not to start and continue the class. I collected their assignments and have a discussion right away and I notice that there are some of them who did not submit assignments and study their lesson maybe because they really enjoy the season and they are not expecting me to start the class as early as first meeting of the New Year.
Week 8- January 10-14, 2011 This week seems to be the busiest week for all the class that I have, we need to finish discussing all the topics that are already discussed so that it can be included to their pointers to review for their upcoming midterm examination. I used to fixed their schedule as base on their usual class schedule what I tend to do is to have a batch examination so that the classroom will be overcrowded and also to avoid cheating at the same time they can answer and think well and on my part I want everything to be organized.
Week 9- January 17-21, 2011 This the week for Midterm Examination it is the second time that I have witnessed the said activity but this time not as an ordinary student but as a student teacher. It is a great pleasure for me because I am the one who made the exam I really feel that I am a teacher, feel my authority within the class. As I watched the students taking up their exams it flashback memories during the time when I was the one taking exam I saw one of the most complicated scenarios on the life of a college student. On the other hand I am looking forward to know the result of their exams for me to see how they have learned on my subjects, Good lick to everyone!
Week 10- January 24-28, 2011 The midterm exams are over now the burden of checking their test papers (essay type and worksheet) and recording of grades is on my hand I started to sleep very late at night at around 2:00 a.m just to finish everything because it is a part of my duty as a student teacher. It is not so good for me because some of the students failed in the exam but I
believed that it is normal for a student who does not pay attention to his lesson. But all in all most of the student got a good grade in the exam which I can say that my passion for teaching will not be wasted.
Week 11- January 31- February 4, 2011 It is a start of a new beginning, start of the second part of the semester new sets of lesson is about to start so again I put extra effort by reading books and preparing some of the materials that I will be needing in my class. And also I am continuing to think of a new and other strategy that I can employ to my class because it seems that the students get bored in the traditional kind of teaching strategy which is the normal classroom discussion so I think of something to be added with what I used to have and I find it effective because the students get focus on the lesson and it is very important that the teacher should know when to change and employ other methodology to cater the needs of the learner.
Week 12- February 7-11, 2011 Nothing new for this week continuation of the topics that needs to be discuss except the fact that this week is the campus field trip I observe in every class they are all excited about the event they are all talking what to bring and prepare until one class was asking me not to have a class before the day of their field trip off course they not won because my reason is its their choice to attend in the activity our class should not be compromise and then they were saying “si sir para naman kayong hindi naging estudyante ” I just smile at them.
Week 13- February 14-18, 2011 This week was a very busy days for me because aside from my regular teaching loads one of my coordinating teacher ask me to handle one of her class and I did not notice that there is a problem with the time schedule Thursday 7:30 – 10:30 and my class is 9:00 12:00 and so what I did since the classroom is just a step away I minimize the time to the extent that the two classes will suffering with the situation. I started the class on time before 9 O’clock comes I’ll give them something to worked on so that I can go to other room. On the lighter side of the story I am happy because this week is the Valentine’s Day and the students are very appreciative they give something to me greetings, chocolate, that’s all hehehe…
Week 14- February 21-25, 2011 My schedule for this week is exactly what I have last week even if I get tired of it, It is fine with me because I know it is a calling of the profession I was enjoying every class because few weeks left the semester is about to end.
Week 15- February 28 – March 4, 2011 Weeks to go before my last day as a student teacher. I feel so sad for that because I am so attached with my students. Since last week is the I.T week one of my class are being excuse so we need to have a make up class to finish everything especially now that the final examination is about to come. I find it also as an opportunity to extend our time together with the students so far same scenes were done just like before but it seems that its more dramatic because will going to say goodbye to one another.
Week 16- March 7-11, 2011 I am so exhausted with all the things that I’ve been doing as a student teacher but I am enjoying it despite of the workloads that I have because of that even if the final exam is about to happen next week I to my class I’ll give it to them this week yes off course they are informed about that they’re exam is one week ahead with the rest of the students in the university I’ll do it for my own convenience I’ll be stated to them the reason behind all this and they are all agree with it for them to prepare to their social dance activity good luck to all of us.
Week 17- March 14–18, 2011 This week was so very busy for me because the deadlines of different things were coming on my way. But I am sure after all of this I’ve learned my lesson and that would be the best treasure that I will bear forever. After the final examination lots of paper works are waiting for at home test papers, final projects, practice set oh no… and so again I started not sleep just to finished everything and to meet all my deadlines.
Week 18- March 21-25, 2011 This is my final week as a student teacher in PUPQC. I feel blessed to have my mentors and my student’s thank you for being part of my student teaching training as I have told you the last time we are gathered in a classroom for helping me to improve my knowledge and ability so that I am here now. Again thank you, I love you all and I will miss you a lot!
It’s time for me to take a rest yahoo… I’ve already submitted all the grade sheets to my coordinating teacher 2 requirements left the OJT Dialogue Forum and the Teaching Portfolio. Happy it’s so nice to be happy….
CURRENT TRENDS AND ISSUES
STUDENTS PROTEST SLASH ON EDUCATION BUDGET By: Ryan Cristopher J. Sorote November 09, 2010
CEBU, Philippines – Student activists protested in front of Commission on Higher Education regional office yesterday to show their opposition to the cut on next year's education budget that they believe would affect the funding for scholarships. Over 30 students from different student organizations gathered in front of the CHED office bringing with them placards and shouting to air their sentiments against the government's move to slash by 33 percent or by P1.69 billion the education department's original budget of P2.54 billion. They said this would only further aggravate the problems that the commission is already facing. The protesters also fear that their will be more college dropouts because many students will no longer be able to avail of scholarships. Akbayan-Cebu chairperson, Lex Lucas said the government should help students to achieve their dreams by building classrooms and improving facilities. He is disappointed over government's "unjust actions" like giving more funds to the Armed Forces instead of giving it to the education department which needs it most. LFS-UP Cebu secretary general Melanie Montaño also said the government is putting more importance on global demands instead of prioritizing the country's immediate needs.
"Clearly, the budget cut in all state colleges and universities (SUCs) around the archipelago sets ground for pursuing priorities basing on the demand of the world market," said Montaño. ASEAN RACE TO MEET UN MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOAL 2015 VIA SUSTAINABLE VOC-TECH By: Preciosa S. Soliven November 18, 2010
To meet the UNMDG for national sustainability the Indonesian government is making sure that 60 percent of their secondary schools will have the technical vocational program. Only 28 percent are expected to enroll in the universities. The Thai Ministry of Education is following suit to make sure 50 percent of their secondary schools will “go TVET.” Acknowledging weakness in their current curriculum, Thailand is determined to develop performance indicators for excellence. This is part of the report delivered at the 16th IVETA-CPSC international conference by Dr. Paryono, Deputy Director and research specialist of SEAMEO VOCTECH center at Brunei Darussalam. ESD in TVET 2010 Prof. Shyamal Majumdar, Director General of CPSC Colombo Plan Staff College for Technician Education and Klaus Sodemann, president of IVET (International Vocational Education and Training) Association together with the new TESDA Secretary, Joel Villanueva co-sponsored the international conference with the theme “ESD in TVET” last Nov. 3 to 5 at EDSA Shangri-La. With just five years for UN member states to reach the UN Millennium Development Goal of sustainability they stated that global efforts are on the rise in establishing
economic development strategies to enrich quality of life while taking care of the environment. The mid-decade assessment of Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD 2005-2014) in Bonn Germany last year pointed out how high global consumption together with the human destruction of the cosmic biodiversity have caused resources to run out and therefore nothing would be left for our future generations. This poses a critical challenge to reorient education sector in rising ESD awareness. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), as a major sub-sector and being the largest producer and consumer of natural resources, has to play a vital role in addressing sustainability. Therefore ESD principles are high on the agenda of TVET institutions around the world. Global ESD enablers in TVET More than 60 world experts, senior administrators, decision makers and educators from America, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific presented their papers in four tracks: TVET Curriculum for ESD, Green Technology approaches for Industry and Education, Sustainable TVET Institutions through Partnerships and Alliance, Research, Monitoring and Evaluation. “Greening TVET” as a framework for providing enabling environment to learn skills, learn and re-learn habit forming practices in the world of work was advocated by Prof. Shyamal. With his lengthy experience in TVET Teacher training, ICT and Total Quality Management he referred to the five dimensions of “Greening TVET” – First, the GREEN CAMPUS means managing campus resources such as energy, water and fuel, to reduce the carbon footprints of students, teachers and staff within TVET institutions; Second, the
GREEN TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM touches on projects to meet upcoming skills for clean and green jobs; Third, to enhance daily life through GREEN COMMUNITY extending ESD practice at the community level to extend the TVET movement to society; Fourth, GREEN RESEARCH to foster the development of a research culture in relevant areas of sustainable development; Fifth, promoting GREEN CULTURE to strengthen ethical standards, attitudes and behavior that respect ecological resources and values the requirements of the future generation. Green jobs and skills Dr. Sandra Rothboeck, Skills and Employability specialist of ILO Bangkok reported that Climate Change adaptation and mitigation have become major drivers of change for societies, economies, enterprise and workers to shift to a low carbon economy during the last decades. A profound transformation in modes of production and consumption can be expected. There will be a redefinition of job profiles. The global market for environmental products and services is projected to double from $1370 billion per year at present to $2740 billion by 2020. Half of this market is based in energy efficiency and the balance in sustainable transport, water supply, sanitation and waste management. Dr. Harry Stolte, head of the InWEnt, Capacity Building International spoke of trends in work demands which are environment driven due to climate change. In building construction there will be more need for assistant managers for sanitation, heating or cooling systems, experts for alternative energy (thermal, wind, solar and water). Dr. Stolte also announced the establishment of the new UNEVOC Center for Sustainable Development. Barriers in TVET
The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership allowed Turkey to promote her entrepreneurship to enable her to join the EU (European Union) market. Funding SVET (Strengthen Vocational Education and Training) project to the cost of 51 million euro between 20022007 parallel to the MVET (Modernization of Vocational Education and Training institutes which ran from 2003-2007 costing Turkey 4.5 million euro and EU 14 million euro). Yet it fell short of the ideal target of 65 percent share of total secondary enrollments while the enrollment in the past decade remains a constant at 35 percent. According to Dr. Ilhan Gunbayi of Akdeniz University Faculty of Education in Turkey, the main reason is that the Turkish students still consider technical professions least prestigious and easy to enter compared to graduating from a university. Does that sound familiar? Dr. Gunbayi’s paper included a table comparing the distribution of enrollment in VocTech secondary schools of European and OECD countries: Austria, 77.3; Belgium, 69.6; Finland, 66.7; Germany, 57.4; Italy, 59.8; Netherlands, 67.6; Norway, 57.5; Switzerland, 64.8. Lower than 50 percent enrollees are France, 43.8; Japan, 24.3; Mexico, 9.4 and Turkey, 36.7. Some professions like catering, real estate, surveying, etc. have been performed by people without attending vocational schools in Turkey. Some of those jobs are still performed by unqualified people. But in the near time, these professions will be performed by technicians who graduated from vocational schools. A student who studies in a vocational school must know that he will have a good job, earn more money, and get good life conditions after finishing the vocational school successfully.
Thus, the enrollment rate to the VET in Turkey has not reached the target yet of 9th Development Plan (2007-2013). However, if policies to increase the quality and attractiveness of VET are put into action and new projects like SVET orienting VET closer to the requirements of the employment system and the corresponding labor market needs are started, it is expected that VET in Turkey will be preferred by 65 percent of the students at high school level. Other barriers to enhancing the quality of VocTech training are the lack of training standards in the Turkish system. They merely serve administrative purpose. The content is often a list of topics to be taught and without indication of levels required at the start and the level to be achieved upon completion. Guidelines for assessing the student are lacking and the technology is often outdated. Being teacher oriented it lacks flexibility to meet local demands. Many countries stress the need to place greater emphasis on TVET in the years to come Vocational Education has recently been one of the primary policy areas of governments, industrialized or developing alike. Globalization of the economy, increasing international competition, changes in demographic development and the labor market, are giving rise to a need for new strategies on education and training policy. Economic development depends a great deal on adapting TVET systems to meet social and economic demands. For this reason many countries place a greater emphasis on highlighting the importance of providing attractive qualified training programs and continuing training opportunities in order to enhance employability and occupational mobility.
SINGAPORE TRAINING ADVANCES SUC’S OFFICIALS, FACULTYS TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION. By: Rainier Allan Ronda November 25, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – One hundred seventy-six faculty members and officials of 31 state universities and colleges (SUCs) have received training to boost their capacity to teach engineering and other technology-focused college degree programs from experts of the prestigious Singaporean educational institution, the Nanyang Polytechnic International (NYP). Dr. Patricia Licuanan, chairman of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), hailed Singapore’s Temasek Foundation, a non-profit philanthropic organization, for stepping forward with the S$1.12 million grant that made the training program of SUC professors and officials on technology education possible. The beneficiaries included 96 specialist teachers in industrial electronics and mechatronics engineering, 70 senior officials from the 31 participating SUCs, and ten senior officials of CHED which included Commissioner William Medrano. The training were held in eight batches conducted from January until this month. Under a partnership forged late last year between CHED, Temasek Foundation and NYP, the beneficiaries were trained in technical manpower development by their counterparts from the Singaporean polytechnic institution known for its top-rate international faculty and state-of-the-art facilities.
NYP is a training partner of the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as other government agencies. It also supports the Singapore Government’s technical assistance initiatives to help developing countries meet their manpower development needs. Benedict Cheong, chief executive officer of Temasek Foundation, expressed hope that the beneficiaries will spread the knowledge they have gained in the training program to their peers in other SUCs. “This capacity-building program complements the efforts of Philippine authorities to develop its technical and technological manpower. After completing their initial training, participants will continue to share their learning with their peers to facilitate improvements in systems and processes that will enhance the standards of higher education in the Philippines,” Cheong said. DAGDAG NA 2 YEARS SA BASIC EDUCATION NAKALATAG NA Ni Malou Escudero December 05, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – Nakalatag na ang plano para sa pagbuo ng isang ad hoc board na magsasagawa ng konsultasyon tungkol sa implementasyon ng karagdagang 2 taon sa Basic Education o K12 program. Ayon kay Senator Edgardo Angara, bagaman at hindi pa kasama sa budget ng Department of Education para sa 2011 ang implementasyon ng karagdagang 2 taon, nasa planning at assessment stage na ito. Sinabi pa ni Angara na ang ad hoc committee board ang magrerekomenda ng karagdagang taon sa school system at kung idadagdag ito sa tertiary level, ang gastos o financial burden ay sasagutin ng mga magulang.
Pero kung ang karagdagang taon umano ay ilalagay sa primary at secondary levels, ang pondo ay dapat manggaling sa gobyerno. Suportado ni Angara, chair ng Senate Committee on Education, Arts and Culture, ang karagdagang dalawang taon sa basic education curriculum. Dapat umanong ipantay sa international norm ang bilang ng taon na ginugugol ng mga estudyante sa eskuwelahan dahil kabilang ang Pilipinas sa iilang bansa sa mundo na 10 taon lamang ang basic education. P 271. 6B 2011 EDUCATION BUDGET BIGGEST IN PHILIPPINE HISTORY PNOY By: Ding Cervantes December 09, 2010
CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga, Philippines — President Aquino said here that the P271.67 billion education appropriation in the 2011 budget, already passed in the Senate, surpasses the education allocations of any of his predecessors. “We have committed more resources to primary and secondary education to ensure that the children of the 4.6 million (poorest of the poor) families have schools to go and then be provided with skills for sustainable livelihood,” Aquino said in his speech after leading groundbreaking rites for a P200-million Medical City here last Monday. “This is the reason why we have increased the education budget in 2011 by 16 percent or to P271.67 billion,” he added. Last Dec. 2, the Senate passed the proposed budget of P1.6 trillion for 2010. He stressed that “no other administration has spent this much on education.”
This, even as the President also said that the 2010 budget as already passed in the Senate, also provides an 11 percent increase in the budget for state universities and colleges (SUCs), contrary to claims that funds for government tertiary schools have been slashed lower. “Despite the claims of some elements that we have cut the budget for state universities and colleges, we have actually increased the total appropriations that they will receive by more than 11 percent,” the President said. Budget already approved by the Senate “can confirm this,” he added. SUCs held recently a series of protest rallies directed at the President and Congress over alleged big cuts in state funding for the tertiary education institutions. At least 87 SUCs held various forms of protests. Even the conservative Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) joined the protest actions. The protesters had quoted the President himself announcing 1.7 percent slash of budget for 112 SUCs nationwide. The President was quoted as having said: “We are gradually reducing the subsidy to SUCs to push them toward becoming self-sufficient and financially independent, given their ability to raise their income and to utilize it for their programs and projects.” In an interview with the STAR, Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said “we are concerned about SUC’s but there’s just too many of them.” “Just because they are not getting enough does not mean the government has already abandoned them. We are in a discussion with the Commission on Higher as we look at rationalizing SUCs so we can truly have worthy centers of tertiary excellence,” said Abad.

ONE CHILD POLICY AND EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION IN SOUTH CHINA By: Preciosa S. Soliven January 13, 2011 NANCHANG, Jiangxi, China — Flight to Nanchang was delayed since our plane was caught in the snow blizzard from Tibet, a highland province of China. Overnight stay in the airport hotel required our getting up at four in the morning to catch the earliest flight the next morning. Our tight schedule could not dislocate the programs already set by the host’s months ahead with Mr. Jimmy Po, president and board vice chairman of the Chinese Montessori Foundation of Taipei, a non-profit educational organization. This included the formal induction ceremony of our hosts’ school into the Chinese Montessori Foundation where local government officials with educators, parents and media people were guests. Parent-teacher forum at Nanchang University Planes, train rides and first class hotel accommodations have been carefully pre-booked months ahead. Our Chinese Sta. Ana Montessori branch coordinator, Kathy Chua and one of our teacher trainors, Cecile Azurin accompanied me. Young lady receptionists and teachers would greet us “Huan ying” from an attractive green reception counter with the logo of the Chinese Montessori Foundation. The pictorial history of Dotoressa Maria Montessori are displayed on the adjacent walls. A magazine stand with articles for parents and the bimonthly Chinese Montessori Journals published by the Taipei Montessori Association helped answer the new parents’ and grandparents’ questions. Nanchang is filled with historical sights associated with the Communist Party. Before holding the ECE forum at the Nanchang University, we were toured at the Teng Wang
Pavilion, which features a very huge and elegant ancient architecture with a three-tiered pagoda tile roof. Our hosts, Mesdames Li Quiong and Ms. Wang are in-charge of the university preschool that would be inducted into the Chinese Montessori Foundation then. Branded at first “capitalist roader” for offering commonsense corrective solution to the excesses Deng Xiaoping went on to become China’s leader. His economic reform carried his famous remark “to get rich is glorious.” From the mid ’70s Zhou Enlai (who groomed Deng Xiaoping as his successor) did much to restore balance and China found a seat in the United Nations in 1971. The Nanchang University hall was filled with educators, students and parents. They were very eager to learn the Montessori psychology, which promotes the full potential of children from birth in contrast to the traditional pedagogy of educating children through memorization. The video presentation of how the Montessori system replicated itself yearly for 45 years producing the new Filipino children from infancy to adolescence intrigued them. At the moment China is not inclined to use the system beyond preschool. Hong Kong’s Ralph Yau and Daisy Lau talked about the “New Parenthood and the New Children.” The parents posed several questions on their role in transforming the home environ to condition their children to love work and order in lieu of mere play. One fifth of humanity Everyone knows that China is the most populous nation on earth. Even a richer country might despair when faced with the necessity to feed, house, clothe and educate one fifth of humanity. The official figure of the population now stands at 1. 328 billion. Half of the population is under 21 years of age. Translated in terms of total population of the planet,
almost one person in every four is Chinese. For every 24 hours there are about 33,000 additional mouths to feed in China. In one year, China’s population increases more than enough to replace the whole population of vast metropolis of Tokyo or New York. China’s official goal of 1.2 billion by the year 2000 has been surpassed. A vigorous campaign has been mounted based on the assumption that if 65 percent of the population under 30 agrees to limit their families to one child the objective can be achieved. Since the mid ’50s authorities have encouraged family planning through delayed marriages and distribution of free contraceptives, but these policies were not effectively implemented until the ’70s and then mainly in the cities. Chinese experts said China could only support a population of 800 million. This is a major reason for the great emphasis China has placed on birth control. Thus the reward system for parents who raise only one child has guaranteed income bonus, more health care subsidy, better retirement pension as well as being given priority in housing allocation. Their only child also gets preferential consideration for day care enrollment and even future job allocation. ANALYZING GENERAL EDUCATION By: Isagani Cruz January 20, 2011
According to CHED Memorandum Order 59, series of 1996, general education demands “an interdisciplinary approach which would help the students see the human being as an integral person living in both a national and a global community.” Let me continue to explain the key words in that sentence through examples.
First, the word “human.” In the film Patch Adams, the main character (played by Robin Williams) protests when a doctor refers to a patient by number rather than by name. Patients are human beings that have names and personalities. Similarly, teachers that look at students as mere names in a class list are not doing their job. A good teacher knows every single student, not just by name, but by attitude and capability. When I observe a class, I have a simple measure for finding out if a teacher is good or not: a teacher who divides a class into buzz groups by simply asking everyone to count off is too lazy to sit down and figure out who can work best together. Now, the word “integral.” Students know very well that they cannot shut off the world when they sit down for a test. Their latest encounter with their classmates or their parents necessarily affects their concentration. One of the problems with so-called standard multiple-item tests is that they assume that everybody thinks exactly in the same way at exactly the same pace. A student, like everybody else, is an integral person, which means that he or she always thinks with the heart and feels with the brain. The word “national” appears simple, but it is not. Look at newspapers. Last Sunday, only one newspaper (Philippine STAR) thought of putting on its front page the news about 47 people dead because of floods in southern Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao. The other newspapers thought that it was not of national importance, even if the rains affected most of the country. Other newspapers routinely put things that occur in Metro Manila on its front pages (even heavy traffic, for heaven’s sake!) and ignore major events happening outside the center of government. General education must make students aware that the country is much bigger than Metro Manila. The Philippine Literature course (for which I did the syllabus) in the GE
curriculum makes this explicit: “The student must have written a term paper of at least five pages analyzing one literary text written in the language of the region or by someone born in the region where the school is located.” It is wrong to assume that Metro Manila writers are superior to writers in other regions just because they live or work in the capital. Literature in Cebuano or Capampangan is as “national” as literature written in Tagalog or English. Literature in Tagalog or English is as “regional” as literature in Bikol or Ilocano. Finally, the term “global.” As early as 1996, it was already clear to CHED that the fate of our country is closely tied to the fate of the whole world. We cannot say that climate change, the knowledge economy, and the war on terror do not concern us. Like it or not, even if we want to be nationalistic and think only about ourselves, Filipinos are dying from floods during what should be the dry season, many of our best intellectuals are working abroad, and somebody throws a grenade somewhere near us every so often. Students must be made to realize that what we do affects everybody else, and what other people do affects us. Since I wrote the final draft of CMO 59, I can tell you where I got that definition of general education. I plagiarized it from the description of general education in the old manuals of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports. Education is education, and its nature, purpose, and outcome have not changed since the time Confucius and Socrates convened what today would be called classes. Recently, the CHED Technical Panel on General Education came up with a definition of general education that keeps the same centuries-old concept but uses words more comprehensible to students and teachers in the 21st century:
“The objective of Philippine education on the tertiary level is the holistic education of Filipinos who contribute humanely and professionally to the development of a just and economically-robust society in an environmentally-sustainable world through competent and innovative leadership, as well as productive and responsible citizenship. General Education (GE) on the tertiary level addresses the development of the human being. Some of the outcomes expected of students finishing GE are: an appreciation of the human condition, the ability to personally interpret human experience, the ability to view the contemporary world from both Philippine and global perspectives, the ability to reflectively and critically discern right and wrong in today’s world (beyond compliance to rules, laws, and expectations in traditional culture), the ability to tackle problems methodically and scientifically, the ability to appreciate and to contribute to artistic beauty, and the ability to contribute personally and meaningfully to the development of the Philippines.” TEACHING TIP OF THE WEEK. From South Africa comes this sensible tip for veteran college teachers: Take a one-year leave from teaching and work full-time in a corporation. In this way, you bring current real-world experience into the classroom. AQUINO HAILS UST’S HUMANIZING EDUCATION CONTRIBUTION ON THE PHILIPPINE WORLD By: Aurea Calica January 27, 2011
MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino hailed yesterday the contribution of the University of Santo Tomasin providing not just quality but “humanizing” education in
the country, noting that “principles” and not just education set UST graduates apart as they became professionals. The President congratulated UST during the quadricentennial celebration as keynote speaker during the 10th Biennial Conference of the International Council of Universities of St. Thomas Aquinas and said quality must be able to develop not only competitive citizens but also people exposed to the realities of the world. “For four centuries, you have upheld the traditions of excellence and integrity, known to many as the Thomasian spirit, which now resides in the hearts and minds of our leaders and professionals,” the President said. “For four centuries, the University of Santo Tomas has educated the best this country has to offer. But when we look back at the long list of distinguished individuals this institution has produced, it is not merely education that sets them apart, but principles. This university has made it its noble mission to instill Catholic principles to each of its students, while at the same time, giving them a high quality of education,” Aquino noted. The President said it was no surprise that among those who served the country at the highest levels presidents, senators, Supreme Court chief justices, saints, martyrs, and even artists “many are Thomasians people who have learned to balance their intellect on an unshakable foundation of morality.” “I think this is what Thomasians around the world share in common – the ability to excel in their chosen field and contribute to the welfare, not just of their country, but of the world,” Aquino said.
The President said quality education was a vital tool for national development and social change and this was exemplified by UST and which the government would want educational institutions to follow. “The formation of the human mind requires a curriculum that is not merely empirical, contingent and relative, but one that is humanizing,” Aquino said. He said the Philippines was facing the gargantuan task of rehabilitating itself from years of turmoil, which sparked an attitude of disillusionment among the Filipino people and many had unwillingly resigned themselves to live abroad due to the lack of opportunities here. “The duty to give back to the country is not forgotten, but it is largely overshadowed by the pressures of mere survival,” he said. “The 21st century has brought with it a changing cultural, social, and spiritual environment. Thus, Catholic institutions must work harder to develop in their students the necessary knowledge, attitudes, and skills required not only to produce competitive citizens, but also to expose them to the realities of the world; and UST has always been an exemplar of what we ask of our educational institutions. Through your efforts, we are hoping that Filipinos across the archipelago can all exhibit the qualities of your graduates,” Aquino said. The President said the CHED had also started to take action to review and fix the higher education systems in the country to make them more efficient. “We remember (national hero Jose) Rizal’s famous challenge: ‘Where are the youth who will consecrate their golden hours and enthusiasm for the welfare of the country?’ And we must hold ourselves to this standard that our national hero has set for us and act upon
it with vigor and initiative. We should therefore remember that one’s financial state is but an instrument for the common good which will then influence one’s sense of satisfaction with life,” Aquino said. Aquino assured the “daylight is upon us” and “we have restored the all-important trust between government, private institutions, and the Filipino people.” Founded in 1611, UST is the oldest university in the Philippines and the largest Catholic university in the world in terms of student population located in one campus. UST also enjoys the singular privilege of being the only pontifical university in Asia. I.T EDUCATION FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS PUSHED By: Christina M. Mendez February 03, 2011
MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Edgardo Angara called on his colleagues in the Senate to help him in pursuing legislation to integrate computer education into the curriculum of students as early as the elementary level. “In our efforts to recover from lost economic grounds, our people need to be updated on the latest advances in technology. The youth must be scientifically and technically prepared to fully tap their inner talents and contribute to national development,” said Angara, who chairs the Senate committee on education. To demonstrate how backward the country has been in terms of information technology, Angara cited the 2009 Global I.T. Report released by the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, wherein the Philippines has further slipped from its 2008 ranking of 81st in terms of Network Readiness to 85th. In 2007, the country ranked 69th.
In a bid to enable the country to keep up with other countries in terms of global technology, Angara has filed Senate Bill 2012 which seeks to promote computer literacy by including basic computer applications and programs in primary schools, to produce highly-skilled workers in programming, digitally-aided design, hardware, networking and software development. SB 2012 will allow the creation of the Board of Computer Education, which will assess, supervise and monitor the accreditation of schools; provide the curriculum for computeraided logic, math and science education in the elementary level; and monitor over all performances of the schools and the students. The bill will promote the Build-Operate-Transfer scheme of the program, which will include facilitating the training of teachers on computer literacy and maintenance and provide apprenticeships to qualified students into the facilities maintenance component of their education. This is pursuant to Republic Act 6957, the act authorizing the private sector to build and operate infrastructure facilities and later on transfer ownership to the (local) government. Finally, the bill will put in place a voucher system for specialized computer education in 19 of the poorest provinces of the country. Under this provision, qualified students who completed secondary school will be allowed to take competitive aptitude tests. Upon passing the test, they can avail of vouchers from the partner agency or through the local unit of the Board to enroll in a computer school of their choice. “This bill is intended to prepare the Filipino youth to meet the technological challenges of the new century,” Angara said.
INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY KEYS IN WORLD CLASS EDUCATION The Philippine Star February 10, 2011
MANILA, Philippines - Educating children in the new millennium poses new challenges. We now live in an increasingly diverse, globalized, and complex society, requiring each of us to keep pace with rapid technological advancements. Thus, the need for an educational institution that equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills and develops them to become globally competitive achievers is paramount. Established 25 years ago, TRACE College provides world-class education from preschool and grade school to high school and college, featuring an advanced curriculum, outstanding teachers, and state-of-the-art facilities. All of these aspects enable students in the Los Baños-based school to discover their potentials, aim for their goals, and achieve success in their chosen career. Here are some of what TRACE offers: • The TRACE System of Education, a comprehensive and holistic system benchmarked among top educational institutions in the world • Comprehensive and intensified training in Math, Science and English across all levels. • Chinese and Japanese language lessons to boost children’s linguistic skills and develop a greater appreciation for multi-cultural diversity. • Recreational to competitive sports, an innovative sports development program cultivating discipline and values. • State-of-the-art facilities, the only school in the Philippines that has two virtual laboratories equipped with an emergency care simulator and a baby simulator, which
mimic the actual responses of a real human being to clinical intervention and drug administration.
OBAMA PROMOTES JOBS BY WAY OF EDUCATION The Philippine Star February 19, 2011
WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says better education in math and science is critical to pushing the US forward in the global competition for innovation and jobs, and he wants the private sector to get involved in making it happen. Obama recorded his weekly radio and Internet address during a visit this week to Intel Corp. outside of Portland, Ore. He praised the company Saturday for making a 10-year, $200 million commitment to promote math and science education and held it up as an example of how corporate America can make money at the same time it builds the country. "Companies like Intel are proving that we can compete that instead of just being a nation that buys what's made overseas, we can make things in America and sell them around the globe," Obama said. "Winning this competition depends on the ingenuity and creativity of our private sector. But it's also going to depend on what we do as a nation to make America the best place on earth to do business." Obama's West Coast swing, which also included a dinner with big names in California's Silicon Valley including Apple's Steve Jobs and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, was part of his push to promote a budget proposal that increases spending in targeted areas like education, research and development and high-speed Internet, while cutting in other
areas. Republicans newly in control of the House are pushing much deeper cuts and resisting new spending. The GOP is also taking Obama to task for avoiding significant changes to the biggest budget busters: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. In the
Republicans' weekly radio address, Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., trumpeted the GOP's push to cut $60 billion from the current fiscal year budget and promised a 2012 budget proposal that, unlike Obama's, offers "real entitlement reform." "Our reforms will focus both on saving these programs for current and future generations of Americans and on getting our debt under control and our economy growing," Price said. "By taking critical steps forward now, we can fulfill the mission of health and retirement security for all Americans without making changes for those in or near retirement." THE RH BILL AND EDUCATION By: Eladio Dioko February 24, 2011
In the midst of the controversy on RH bill, one congressman has come out with a statement that this proposed measure is not necessary since population management has long been a government policy. We are referring to Congressman Karlo Alexei Nograles of Davao City who is one of the sensible legislators who oppose the enactment of this anti-life bill. Indeed, why craft a law that would divide the nation and arm-twist a people to control birth? Condom, which is the popular means of controlling birth, would be freely distributed by government health workers because huge funds would the earmarked for the purpose
once the bill is passed. In fact, this year, even with the bill still pending enactment, the government is setting aside – hold your breath – P3 billion for information campaign on contraceptive use. In its premise the RH initiative purports to encourage the use of natural and artificial means of birth control. Yet there are provisions which mandate the government to shell out millions of pesos for buying anti-pregnancy materials for distribution to the general public. Once passed, this legislation would therefore abet the use of artificial means of spacing birth, a position the Catholic Church vehemently opposes. The reason is by now clear to most Filipinos who have followed this issue: Using contraceptives aborts life in the mother’s womb. It’s murder pure and simple. If this is encouraged by the state, where’s the constitutional declaration that we are “imploring the aid of Almighty God” in governing this country? There is no question on the need to control population growth. But the answer, like the answer to almost all of our social problems, lies in education, general education including an expertly managed sex education. Raise the level of the educational attainment of the 92 million Filipinos and population growth tapers off. But leave tens of millions of these under the “scratch and dig” state they now endure and babies would continue to tumble out by the dozen from many households. The trouble is there is no money for education. True, we have a compulsory basic education. But how many manage to finish high school? Not even half of the school age youth. This means that only about 50 percent of Filipinos are functionally literate. Yet even this state is not yet a guarantee for gainful employment because in today’s world a higher level of schooling is a must. Hence, there’s a huge mass of poverty stricken warm
bodies whose urgent concern is survival and to whom family planning is a meaningless thing. If only we have a no-nonsense anti-poverty program. If only we can better educate our people there would be no need to spend billions for birth control. But there’s no money for education, for good education, that is. For years we have run our school system on a “puwede na” mentality –puwede na even if one classroom is used by two or three classes, puwede na even if only one textbook is available for three or four students, puwede na even if many high schools are manned by “casual” teachers, puwede na even if mere pictures of equipment are used in science classes, etc. The irony is that there’s money for other less critical purposes. Pork for legislators, to name one, gets billions from the national coffer. Superfluous infrastructures, to name another, drain the same coffer of more billions. And of course, corruption has leeched this nation into its current anemic state. Education? It’s the boast of politicians that this program gets the lion’s share of the budget, but this happens because it has the most number of personnel. The bitter truth, however, is that only a meager 15 to 16 percent of our GNP is shelled out for education. Compared to other Asian countries, most of which spend 20 to 25 percent of their budget for education, we are the miser in this regard. Our failure to spend enough for our school system could be the reason why we have remained the economic poor boy of Asia. Years were when we were the envy in this part of the world for education and progress. But we must have been asleep (like Rip Van Winkle?) all these years because many of our neighbors like Indonesia, Vietnam, India and others, which used to be in the backwaters of development, are now looking down at us.
What will wake us up? Education, of course, because education is the engine of growth and development. But as long as we treat our schooling system like decrepit barangay schools we will remain half awake and problems such as poverty and its companion goblin of high population growth rate will always haunt us.
AUTISM EDUCATION IN PHILIPPINE SCHOOL GOES HI-TECH By: Tam Noda March 04, 2011
MANILA, Philippines Globe Telecom and the Autism Society of the Philippines (ASP) are bringing in both technology and training to support the special education of public school children diagnosed with autismspectrum disorder (ASD). The two organizations signed a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Education today to push for the undertaking in the country’s public schools. Held at DepEd’s main office in Ortigas Center in Pasig City, the signing was represented by Yolanda Quijano (DepEd’s undersecretary for programs and projects), Jeffrey Tarayao (head of corporate social responsibility of Globe); and Erlinda Koe (chairman emeritus of ASP). Under the agreement, two public schools in Metro Manila were chosen as pilot test centers, tapping the use of information and communications technology (ICT) for education of children with special needs. Globe and ASP have chosen P. Gomez Elementary School in Sta. Cruz Manila and P. Villanueva Elementary School in Pasay City. The schools will receive free one-year
Internet connectivity from Globe, while ASP will provide visual-learning software and some related training for teachers and parents. Cristina Estampador, board of trustees of ASP, identified the visual software as Vizzle, a visual learning software introduced in 2007 and is now being used
for special education abroad. “Autistics are visual-thinkers and they are very specific about things, they have fixations and Vizzle would be a very good help,” she said. Estampador said teachers can also incorporate speech lessons using Vizzle. It can also be used for teaching deaf students. “One can also modify the lessons in Vizzle according to Pinoy culture, such as our very own ‘balarila’ which goes like Lanie, Lenny and Bantay,’ and many more,” she added. Tarayao said Globe is closely working with DepEd, and is now completing the connectivity. “What technology can do is make people inclusive in society. We hope that this will be the start and that others will follow as well,” he cited. According to ASP, there are about one million people diagnosed with ASD’s in the Philippines and 45 certified pediatricians for this. “Studies show that one percent of the work population in the world has autism and that’s why there are still a lot of people with ASD’s are left undiagnosed or hidden from society,” Koe said
LGU’S SCHOOLS EDUCATION ADVOCATES TARGET ZERO DROPOUT IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS The Philippines Star March 10, 2010
officials, school administrators, and other education advocates who attended Synergeia Foundation’s 8th National Education Summit have committed to hammer down to zero the dropout rates in public schools in their localities. Synergeia trustee Washington Sycip encouraged the participants to focus on the reduction of dropout rates and not just improving public schoolchildren’s performance. He said good education would lift families across the country from poverty, as well as ensure that democracy would work. “When people are hungry, they sell their votes. Only when poverty is reduced will democracy really work in this country,” Sycip said. Over a hundred top level representatives (mayors, vice-mayors and other LGU officials) from almost 50 municipalities from Cagayan Province to the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao attended the Summit. One provincial governor, Sarangani Gov. Miguel Rene Dominguez, headed the province’s contingent. There were also 114 educators from the Department of Education like teachers, principals, supervisors, and superintendents who supported the new target, as well as education advocates from the corporate sector like Metrobank Foundation and Team Energy.
Synergeia president and CEO Milwida Guevara said efforts to reduce dropout rates would complement measures to improve students’ achievement tests through trainings for teachers, administrators, and parents as well as getting community support. During the workshop sessions, participants agreed that supporting the DepEd’s Alternative Learning System (ALS) that targets out-of-school youth is the country’s hope for bringing children back to school. In ARMM where the USAID-
funded Education Quality and Access to Learning and Livelihood Skills Project invested heavily on hiring instructors specifically for out-of-school youth, the ALS program has started to bring children back to school. The 8th National Education Summit was organized with the assistance of the DepEd, DILG, USAID, World Bank, Ford Foundation and Ateneo de Manila University. It was held last Feb. 18-19, at the Ateneo Professional Schools in Makati City.
NEW CURRICULUM TO IMPROVE MATH SCIENCE EDUCATION The Philippines Star March 17, 2011
MANILA, Philippines - Why has science and mathematics education in the Philippines deteriorated? According to a University of the Philippines (UP) expert, this is because local education persisted in using an obsolete discipline-based curriculum in math and science (which is mostly by rote and without much inquiry and high level of thinking) already rejected as early as 1993 by the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).
Dr. Merle Tan, UP NISMED (National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development) director, said the present math and science curriculum has produced questionable results in the performance of students in the yearly achievement tests which are below those in other countries. Also, Tan said, the present curriculum does not consider the high drop-out rate in local education and is not responsive to the needs of students who might leave school at a particular grade level. “There seems to be a serious gap between science and mathematics education as it is practiced and the science and math education knowledge and skills needed for day-to-day living,” she said, citing a 2007 UP NISMED study as basis for her observation. Tan said a review of the math and science curricula in elementary and high school showed that topics are compartmentalized, inquiry is not encouraged, contents are overcrowded, concepts are by rote, and topics are repetitive. She said students in other countries are performing better because: concepts are dealt with in more depth, ideas and skills are introduced with increasing levels of complexity and in real-life situation, and connections across topics and disciplines and development of scientific literacy are emphasized. Tan, in a speech before the 170th general assembly of the Foundation for Upgrading the Standard of Education, Inc. (FUSE), proposed to replace the curriculum with spiralling and integrated one which has long been adopted by other countries outperforming the Philippines in assessment tests. She said the spiralling and integrated curriculum will: avoid major disjunctions between stages of schooling, provide the basis for continuity and consistency in basic education,
allow students to learn appropriate to their developmental and cognitive stages, show the interrelatedness of the topics with each and their connections across topics, strengthen retention and mastery of topics and skills, and benchmark Filipino students with their foreign counterparts. “In this world increasingly shaped by science and technology, they will not be alienated from the society where they live , they will not be overwhelmed and demoralized by change, and they can make political, environment, and ethical choices in the face of issues confronting us all,” Tan quoted UNESCO
BETTER EDUCATION FOR A BETTER COMMUNITY By: Donnabelle Gatdula March 21, 2011 MANILA, Philippines - Massive poverty remains a primary concern in the Philippines where more than 23 million Filipinos are still living below the poverty line. Because of poverty, many children do not even have the chance of getting into school. Some children even have to work at an early age to eke out a meager income to help in their family’s needs. While the government is doing its part in providing free elementary
and secondary education, other costs such as school supplies, food and transportation allowances, uniforms and projects bore a heavy load on impoverished families whose main concern is to at least eat a decent meal three times a day. As a good corporate citizen, oil player Flying V has expanded its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program through its foundation, the Academe Foundation Inc. which provides scholarship grants to poor but deserving students.
Since its inception in 1999, the Academe Foundation has granted more than 1,200 scholarships to underprivileged children nationwide from grade school to college. Aside from its scholarship program, the Academe Foundation operates five learning centers nationwide that provide free values formation classes to indigent children between three and six years old. These Learning Centers has benefitted 871 children and is operating at five locations, namely: Taal, Batangas; Barangays Poro and Canaoay in San Fernando, La Union; Marahan West in Davao City and in Barangay Pinugas in Baras, Rizal. “Through our learning center program we are able to teach Filipino values to children as young as 2 ½ to six years old. In our learning centers we give indigent children the opportunity to thrive in an environment where learning is fun and exciting. They are also taught essential basic skills to prepare them for formal school,” Natasha Reyes, the foundation’s executive director said. The learning centers are fully operated by the Academe Foundation. However, the Foundation partners with local government units and the Department of Education to provide the learning structure and ensure a conducive learning environment for the children. “We do not charge any tuition fees in whatever form or kind and all materials and equipment, including books and school supplies are free,” Reyes said. Through this program, Flying V hope to help these children lead better lives by teaching them not only skills but more importantly, values which will help shape them as responsible adults. “We will soon be opening our doors in Morong Rizal and in Porac Pampanga. Our Scholarship Program, on the other hand, has benefitted more than 1,000 children
nationwide and will be granting an additional 35 scholarships for the coming school year to underprivileged but deserving College students,” Reyes said. Through the foundation’s scholarship program, qualified youths were taken off the streets into classrooms for a chance at a brighter future. Such an opportunity has been given to the transport sector through scholarship grants and employment opportunities for children of jeepney drivers. The coverage of the scholarship program include “assistance for tuition, books, school supplies, uniforms, and other allowances which they need to finish tertiary education at a college or university and course of their choice, ” Reyes said. The application process for the scholarship program begins when a certain group or sector of society has been identified as beneficiaries. The would-be beneficiaries are admitted in the scholarship program based on their scholastic standing and their family‘s financial condition.
