DepEd Needs New Learning Strategy
Marikina 1st District Rep. Bayani Fernando filed a resolution pushing the Department of Education to use effective classroom teacher-student learning strategy for effective delivery of education.
Fernando said a new learning strategy is needed “to reverse the 60-year continuing deterioration of education in the country.”
The program will have a three-year continuing appropriations of P50 billion if implemented.
Fernando cited in House Resolution 2334 the recent World Bank report that showed that 80 percent of Filipino students fall below the least level of proficiency for their grade levels.
“The World Bank concluded that there is a crisis in education in the Philippines,” Fernando said.
Fernando suggested a strategy that might be helpful for the education sector.
“The production of the modules will not be contracted out by the DepEd and shall be done in-house employing the current best teachers and administrative personnel of the DepEd irregardless of rank and positions,” Fernando said.
The modules shall be designed in a form that can be shown in special monitor screens to be installed in each classrooms.
The department will have to install monitor screens for each classroom. The teacher and students will watch together the assigned module for each school day.
The modules can be revised when there are changes in the curriculum.
Annual evaluation shall be conducted for all students in all grade levels, the results of which shall determine the qualification of the teachers to remain employed.
