  27. 27. EDCOM Assessment (1991) • Disparities in access to education in favor of rich, urban, high income. • Achievement levels are low – TIMSS (1999) • Drop out rates are higher in rural and less developed communities. • Muslim and cultural communities suffer from benign neglect • Class interruptions and length of the school year reduce learning • Science and technology education is inadequate • Values educations in schools are ineffective
  28. 28. EDCOM Assessment • Irrelevance of education to individual and social needs • Teachers are inadequately trained • Same findings were found in the Monroe survey in 1965 indicating no significant improvement in Philippine Education for over 65 years
  29. 29. Key Problems (Gonzalez, 2000) • Rate of annual population growth • Survival rate is unsatisfactory • Inefficiency in teaching • Problems with the teaching/learning conditions • Lack of English speaking community
  30. 30. Issues • In formulated educational policies, the governing body uses western orientation for Filipinos undermining our own set of standards. • Appropriateness of competencies for specific ages • Subsequent revisions of the curriculum • Continues underachievement results among students • Poor teaching conditions and inefficiency in teaching-teachers are weak in content and liberal education skills • Deficit in the quality of education: Developing elites that can be showcased or improving the lives of the many.
  31. 31. Objectives of Higher Education 1. Conservation of knowledge and values 2. Interpretation and transmission of knowledge and ideas and values 3. The quest for truth through scholarly research 4. The preparation for professions by intelligent and thorough training in the principles underlying the profession.
  32. 32. Commission on Higher Education • The Commission on Higher Education is the governing body covering both public and private higher education institutions as well as degree-granting programs in all tertiary educational institutions in the Philippines. The CHED was established in May 18, 1994 through Republic Act 7722 or the Higher Education Act of 1994.
  33. 33. Mandates of CHED • Promote quality education • Take appropriate steps to ensure that education shall be accessible to all • Ensure and protect academic freedom for the continuing intellectual growth, the advancement of learning and research, the development of responsible and effective leadership, the education of high level professionals, and the enrichment of historical and cultural heritage. • There are 1,605 higher education institutions in the country
  34. 34. Philosophy • Realization of Filipino identity and strong sense of national pride • Cultivation and inculcation of moral and spiritual foundations • Attainment of political maturity, economic stability and equitable social progress • Preservation and enrichment of the historical and cultural heritage of the Filipinos, as a people and as a nation
  35. 35. Goals The CHED ensures the attainment of empowered and and globally competitive Filipino through: 1. Quality and Excellence - the provision of undergraduate and graduate education that meets international standards of quality and excellence; 2. Relevance and Responsiveness - generation and diffusion of knowledge in the broad range of disciplines relevant and responsive to the dynamically changing domestic and international environment; 3. Access and Equity - broadening the access of deserving and qualified Filipinos to higher education opportunities; and 4. Efficiency and Effectiveness - the optimization of social, institutional, and individual returns from the utilization of higher education resources.
  36. 36. Targets • Updated and regionally comparable standards in priority programs • Increase in the number of faculty with MA/MS • Increase in the number of accredited programs • Improved performance in licensure examination in priority areas • Increase in the number of intakes and graduates in priority fields • Reduced dropout of lower income groups • Significant increase in the number of beneficiaries of scholarships and other forms of student financial assistance • Proportionate increase of total costs raised from non- public sources
  37. 37. Research Agenda • Rationalization studies • Benchmarking and comparative study of Policies, Standards, and Guidelines in priority disciplines in Asia, Europe, and the US • Establishment of quality indicators • Impact study on liberalizing entry of foreign universities/colleges via satellite campuses in the country • Evaluation of graduate programs in Teacher Education and Business Education • Demand-supply studies • Graduate tracer studies • Evaluation studies on the feasibility of full cost tuition and socialized tuition fee schemes • Equity impact study on the provision of government subsidy to SUCs • Study on the Madaris system towards possible integration into the higher education system • Development study on establishing national core competencies for ICT graduates and performance standards for ICT institutions as bases for national accreditation, validation, and certification • Impact study of ICT-driven curricula on student learning and academic performance • Evaluative study on the ICT readiness of college and university faculty • Study on impact of ICT professionals
  38. 38. Long Term Higher Education Development Plan • Tri-fold function: teaching, research, extension service • Mission – Offer programs that meet the demands of the of an industrializing economy – Nurture an academic environment that fosters an integrated learning, creative and critical thinking – Conduct research to support instruction – Undertake extension programs that facilitate the transfer of technology, leadership and self- reliance
  39. 39. Long Term Higher Education Development Plan • Strategic directions – systematic reform, emplacement and operationalization of structures and policies. – Efficiency and effectiveness – Quality and Excellence – Relevance and responsiveness – Access and equity
  40. 40. Issues • Quality - For example, the results of standard tests conducted (National College of Entrance Examination) for college students, were way below the target mean score. • Affordability - There is also a big disparity in educational achievements across social groups. For example, the socioeconomically disadvantaged students have higher dropout rates. And most of the freshmen students at the tertiary level come from relatively well-off families. • Budget - The Philippine Constitution has mandated the government to allocate the highest proportion of its budget to education. However, the Philippines still has one of the lowest budget allocations to education among the ASEAN countries. • Mismatch - There is a large proportion of "mismatch" between training and actual jobs. This is the major problem at the tertiary level and it is also the cause of the existence of a large group of educated unemployed or underemployed.
  41. 41. Graduate Education • Preparation of candidates for advance studies • Masters Degree • Doctor of Philosophy • Law, medicine etc.
  42. 42. Graduate Education in the Philippines • Graduate education in the Philippines is characterized by imbalance (Patalinhug, 2000). • 1987-1988: 92.02% graduate enrollment • 1994 – 1995: 91.11% concentrated in only three disciplines: teacher education, arts and sciences, and management. • the percentage (30.27 percent and 10.68 percent) reported for "arts and sciences" is heavily weighted in favor of enrollment for liberal arts degrees because few students are reported to enroll in science and mathematics. • Graduate management program has the third largest enrollment
  43. 43. • Graduate training in science and engineering is limited. • Because of this situation, the DOST embarked on the Engineering and Science Education Project (ESEP) in 1992 through a World Bank loan. • ESEP is a manpower development program for increasing the number of MS and Ph.D. degree holders in science and engineering, and developing the research capability of scientists and engineers. Graduate Education in the Philippines
  44. 44. Congressional Commission on Education (EDCOM) • Graduate education is mediocre for it fails to create research-based knowledge needed in generating more jobs and raising the value of production. • The Philippine educational institutions are poorly managed.
  45. 45. Recommendations of EDCOM for Graduate Education • Recommendation to ensure that government support for higher education should go only to priority courses and programs and that their curricular programs are more relevant to the communities they serve. • Ex. UP-Davao City, Master in Business Program • The creation of a better fit between higher education and employment (or reducing the mismatch between graduates and jobs). • The strengthening of graduate education and research – greater research productivity
  46. 46. Future Prospects • Increasing reliant on innovative educational technology • Academic linkages among the external community and industry needs to be strengthened. • Undertake a collaborative project (research, instructional materials development, or the establishment of manufacturing industry linkage programs)
  47. 47. Issues • Strengthen the research orientation of professors • High unemployment of the educated members of the labor force • Mismatch between degree finished and actual job • Need to qualify carefully what is meant by quality education
  48. 48. Technical and Vocational Education • Technical Education – learning activities dealing with the development of technical skills, knowledge and attitudes relative to production or service occupations for effective citizenship (Camarao, 1991). • Vocational Education – specialized education programs or courses intended to prepare students for employment as skilled workers in a particular sector or area, to upgrade the work skills of those who are already employed (Camarao, 1991).
  49. 49. Goals and Objectives of Technical Education • Development of basic technical skills, knowledge and attitudes • Development of understanding and interest in the technological sector of society • Development of trained manpower • Enhancement of creativity, innovation, productivity and entrepreneural skills • Development of new and appropriate technology
  50. 50. Technical Education Courses • Agricultural arts • Business and distributive arts • Fishery arts • Industrial arts • Homemaking arts
  51. 51. • Formal education – structured and well organized educational system, starting from the elementary to the secondary school curricula and the various post secondary courses offered by schools, colleges, and universities • Nonformal education – organized instructional activity offered to develop skills, knowledge or attitudes of a particular group and conducted over a short period. • Informal education – learning through own effort, initiative and ability
  52. 52. Need for Technical Education • Preparation for the world of work • Meeting the needs of Filipino youth and adults • Meeting manpower needs • Solving unemployment and underemployment • Enhancing transfer of technology
  53. 53. Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) • To encourage the full participation of and mobilize the industry, labor, local government units and technical- vocational institutions in the skills development of the country's human resources. • Provides direction, policies, programs and standards towards quality technical education and skill development.
