  • 11.  Education under American colonization led to widespread Americanization of the Philippines. Through education, the Americans influenced the Filipinos in terms of what they eat, to love the American culture, and most of all, to prioritize their products.
  • 12. Insights “Americans thought us the importance of education, and that importance is still evident today. Before the Americans, education was not for everyone, only the elite people were given the chance of the Spaniards to study. Americans introduced the public school system and by that we should thanked them because they’re the reason why there’s Cebu Normal University, our school. We all know that they had hidden agendas for their own good that’s why they helped and educated us. But In my own opinion, I must say that both parties benefitted, what they did had a mutual effect to the Americans and to us Filipinos.”
