EFA: <br />MAKE BASIC EDUCATION ACCESSIBLE TO AS <br />MANY LEARNERS<br />Education Secretary Armin Luistro, FSC<br />“The Education for All, more than a commitment, is a guiding principle to make basic education accessible to as many learners which we can consider a solid investment for the future. We are all stakeholders of education. Education is not a sole responsibility of DepEd. At the end of the day, we are all accountable in the education of our people.” <br />
IMPROVING PARTICIPATION RATE OR ENROLMENT RATIO<br />Education Secretary Armin Luistro, FSC<br />“As President Benigno S.

Challenges<br /><ul><li>How to improve student-learning outcomes.
Decentralization and implementation of collaborative school governance (Anderson, 1998; Chan and Chui, 1997; Walker and Dimmock, 2000).
A more democratic administrative approach in which planning and decision making are devolved to the individual school (Doran, 1999).</li></li></ul><li>In characterizing successful schools, researchers commonly list the following critical school-level factors: collaborative planning/collegial work and parental/ community participation <br />(Creemers, 1994; Edmonds, 1979; Joyce, 1991; Marzano, 2003; Purkey & Smith, 1983)<br />
STRATEGIES IN THE SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT <br />AND IMPROVEMENT PROCESS<br /><ul><li>It is important to exert effort to create the absorptive capacity of schools or clusters of schools to take in and implement significant reform and improvement.
The leadership of the school principal is crucial, so it is important to empower him/her by stressing his/her role in strengthening leadership and management competencies.
The involvement of the entire school community is a key variable in the development and improvement of schools.</li></li></ul><li>THREE IMPORTANT STEPS IN THE OVERALL STRATEGY FOR IMPROVING SCHOOLS<br /><ul><li> SCHOOL PROFILING
SCHOOL MAPPING EXERCISE<br />PRIVATE EDUCATION<br />

SCHOOL MAPPING EXERCISE<br />BJECTIVES OF TRAINING<br />PRIVATE EDUCATION<br />3. To guide school principals and planning officers by walking them through the GIS-based school profiling templates as well as providing them with standard protocols and procedural guidelines in accomplishing the SME related tasks at the school-level for proper consolidation of basic school and geo-spatial information by school division.<br /> <br />4. To conduct technical training workshops through tutorial demonstration of ArcGIS software and actual school site survey activities using a Global Positioning System (GPS) device.<br /> <br />
Overview of GIS and its Uses<br />SME CONFERENCE AND TRAINING COVERAGE<br />GIS MAPS<br />LAYERS<br />
PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT<br /><ul><li>Plot the exact location and distribution of all schools in the country.
Tracking program success and sharing outcomes</li></li></ul><li>SOME PRACTICAL USEFULNESS <br />OF THIS PROJECTS<br /><ul><li>Precise detailing of vital information such as a particular school building standing on "hazardous" ground to original title of land ownership and benefactor, desks and tables, classroom over capacity, classroom damage conditions, potential students in underserved areas, etc.</li></ul>More will be mention later…<br />
