With the coming of the Spaniards, education became organized. *** Spanish priest headed the *** formal education and the focus of the education is Christian Doctrines. ***
What is Christian Doctrines??? When we say Doctrine...*** Since the Spaniards wanted to spread Christianity, education was predominantly religious.***The missionaries *** took charge in teaching controlling and maintaining the rules and regulations imposed to the students.The children learned Christian doctrines, sacred songs and music, and prayers required for the sacraments of confession and communion.***
The first educational system for the students in the country was established by the virtue of the Educational Decree of 1863.. ***This law gave Filipinos a complete system of education from the primary level to college level.***The law provided for the establishment of elementary schools, one for the boys and another for girls.So what is the pros and cons with same sex schools??? I think that the restricted social learning skills would be a great disadvantage, as would a lack of male-female social interaction in general. On a positive side, both sexes should be able to concentrate on education and learning without the distraction of the opposite sex.
The wealthy Filipinos or the Ilustrados were accommodated in the schools.***
The students in the primary level were taught the Christian Doctrines, However.....Science and Mathematics were not very much taught to the students even in the universities. Aside from the Christian Doctrines taught, Latin was also taught to the students instead of Spanish.***
The friars controlled the educational system during Spanish times. They owned different schools, ranging from the primary level to the tertiary level of education. College was equivalent to a University during the Spanish Regime. The Student graduated with the Degree in Bachelor of Arts (Bachiller en Artes).***
The effect of education to the Filipinos was only compelled to the fiars’ influences from their lessons based on the Christian Doctrines or teachings. Indeed, the friars were effective in evangelizing the Catholic religion to the Filipinos.***
*** However, several educated Filipinos referred to as Ilustrados began movements directed towards change in the system of government in the Philippines. Despite their wealth and education, the ilustrados were still considered by the Spaniards to be inferior. One of the goals of the Ilustrados was to be in the same level with the proud Spaniards.
