In the World Bank Philippine Development Report “Creating More and Better Jobs,” it is stated that an estimated 14.6 million jobs will be needed by 2016. The report emphasizes the need to focus policy reform that can lead to an agenda of job creation, as it highlights issues that have been hindering our country’s growth.

Forging sustainable academe-industry linkages

By

Over the years broad reform frameworks have been developed, from the trifocalized education system (basic, technical-vocational, tertiary) established by the Congressional Commission on Education (1991) to the Presidential Commission on Education Reforms (2000), the Besra (Basic Education Sector Reform Agenda), Education for All, Presidential Task force on Education (2008), and this administration’s landmark launch and implementation of the K to 12 system. These significant reform efforts focus on structure, basic education, teacher quality, and tertiary reform programs. Still, the issues and problems that resurface consistently highlight the need for reassessment and evaluation. Focus is now most appropriately given to tertiary education, especially industry-academe linkages, reforms in the governance structures, and ensuring that the education gained in the tertiary level will result in employment and lifelong skills necessary for productivity.

Quality education and job creation go hand in hand

By

Over the years there has been a mismatch between the quality of our graduates and the needs of industry. There have been efforts by the private sector (e.g., preemployment training) and the government (the K-to-12 system and Tesda’s notable TVET framework of school-based, center-based, enterprise-based and community-based training), but these are not enough especially if these are not implemented in congruence with a strategic national education master plan.

The many faces of the teacher

By

The Filipino teacher has many faces. For her/his learners, the teacher is more than just an educator. S/he is also a parent, caregiver, counselor, and healer all at once. We all have that one special teacher we can’t forget, who has touched our lives and contributed in a large part to making us who we are today.
