Teaching Effectiveness in the Philippines is in a Truly Lesser Quality: 2 Emerging Reasons
Teaching effectiveness in the Philippines is in a lesser quality. Yes, this is true and indeed not a secret to everybody including teachers. In the past years, students are well-versed compared to our students at present. Teachers were then the most effective leaders in the school campus. Students in the 90’s, 80’s, 70’s and beyond were more competitive. It was the golden era of the education sector of the country.
Yet, as the years pass by and the education sector is changing its curriculum, it was not what we expected. The golden era vanished and the new curriculum gets more complicated. Teaching effectiveness in the Philippines is in a lesser quality. Why is it so?
There are 2 emerging reasons behind it:
1. Teachers are so much bombarded with irrelevant paper works and other activities.
Teaching effectiveness in the Philippines is in a lesser quality and it is true. Teachers are to do paper works for compliance purposes only. The fact that there are many of them to comply same paperworks always, it makes them ineffective. We even don’t know if the division office or any higher officials will read all the report. Why make the situation complicated when there is an easy way? This is the reality about teachers. They only follow their higher ups and comply needed papers for compliance purposes. The time for teaching is also affected resulting to lesser quality education.
2. Teachers can no longer discipline the students because DSWD will intervene.
“If there is no discipline, there is no learning at all.” The law that protects students from getting disciplinary actions made is so difficult. Teachers can no longer impose light discipline to students in a way they will learn. We much tolerate the students in what they wanted and this is the reason why learning is difficult.
Teaching effectiveness in the Philippines is in a lesser quality and yes it is very clear. If only our leaders can do something and act about it then the effectiveness of teaching might return. We all should be responsible for it because we adults were the ones who knew first things about it. Bring back the quality education that our learners need. – Alec | Helpline PH
