DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION The Department of Education is in charge of overseeing the country's school system, particularly in the Basic Education Department. The DepEd handles the overall administrative process of elementary and secondary schools and it also issues Memorandums and Orders on anything related to the management of schools in the whole country. It is authorized to launch nationwide programs which usually aim to improve the conditions of public schools. Its vision is by 2030, DepEd is globally recognized for good governance and for developing functionally-literate and God-loving Filipinos. Furthermore, its mission is to provide quality basic education that is equitably accessible to all and lays the foundation for life-long learning and service for the common good. As a concerned Filipino citizen, I think it is imperative for me to know about the latest DepEd memo or program because as the Department in charge of the country's Basic Education, it should be where I gather my sources or knowledge about changes that may occur in our curriculum that could affect the children’s future. One thing I noticed is that school nowadays has now finally shown its cracks and holes that is drastically affecting our society. School punishes people for making mistakes. The punishment could be in verbal, psychological, or sometimes physical form. How does that happen? When you made a mistake or did not comply to a certain curriculum, you would be told you are wrong or even get scolded or be punished by being given low grades. This type of system puts a great amount of pressure on a child to always perform well and to not do mistakes. It programs the mind of a child with a simple yet very destructive thought: "I have to perform well or I won't amount to anything." There's nothing wrong in performing well. But with this kind of thinking, a person would now start to…...

Cavite is a coastal province situated approximately 9 miles (30 kilometers) south of Manila. It is composed of 20 municipalities and 3 key cities – Trece Martires City (provincial capital), Tagaytay City and Cavite City. The geography of the province varies differently, from flat and coastal in the north and west, to mountainous and hilly in the south and east. Its close proximity to the capital makes it highly urbanized especially in the low-lying municipalities of Bacoor, Imus, Dasmarinas, Kawit, Cavite City, and General Trias where various industries thrive.

As a beginning professional teacher, it is advantageous to know the legal bases of education and the programs and projects of the department. It must also be clarified about the rights, responsibilities, and accountabilities as a teacher. It is important that the beginning teacher must internalize their roles, rights, obligations, and accountability that must be performed as a professional teacher. Being a part of the organization, the beginning teacher must also be aware of the programs and projects of the department through the years to achieve the goal of improving the quality of basic education. The culture inherent in the system and structure of the department also helps in giving the right perspective and insight of the organization. But historically, the teaching occupation has not had......

...Computerized Grading System Grachel Ching John Hawk Roque Introduction People nowadays are living in an information age dependent upon digital information. Digital information is electronic information,the result of computer processing. Every type of job relies upon getting information, using it, managing it, and relaying information to others. Computers enable the efficient processing and storage of information. Background of the Study HOKACHING UNIVERSITY started at the year 2009 and later on grew on different branches on the Philippines. It has now almost half a million students both on High school Department and College Department. "Education is the needs of each and every person to achieve their goals and aspirations in life." Overview of the System Grading System is a very important aspect of a school’s operations and goals. The students are graded to measure their performance and knowledge in every grading period. Professors spend massive time to accurately compute the grades of the students using their calculators, whether an ordinary of scientific type. In early times, teachers manually solve grades using paper and pen. HOKACHING UNIVERSITY uses the manual way of computing grades and adding information or records of both students and professors. The process entails a lot of effort and by computing and storing of data manually the process is prone to error especially for the professors who handle two or more classes. By using the manual way of computing and......

... finances services and social security (Philippine Statistics Authority, 2015). Industry sectors contributes 31.2% of the total GPD (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014), which contains manufacturing, construction, mining and production, and power production (Advameg, Inc, 2015). The leftover of 11.3% of the total GDP came from Agriculture (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014). Many years ago, Agriculture was once the main contributor to Philippines’s GDP. However in the last ten years there is an increase in other industries like production for apparels, ship building, electronics and semiconductors.  Primary exports of Philippines are mainly conductors and electronic merchandise, transportation tools, garments, copper merchandise, crude oil merchandise, coconut oil, and fruits. Having major importers like China (23%), Japan (13%), United States (12%), Hong Kong (9.8%), and Singapore (5.4%), Philippines can potentially benefit from them by having almost the same GDP growth if these countries that Philippines exports significantly to are holding strong GDP growth as well (Alexander Simoes, 2015). Over the years, the rise in number of Filipinos working overseas have significantly boasted their country GDP growth (BANYAN, 2010). The Philippines was recently being seen as a newly industrialised country and rank at number 40 in terms of the largest economy within the world and is among one of the rising markets within the world (PHILIPPINES CENTER FOR BPO, 2014).

Nat in Philippines

...Almost two-thirds of the country’s high schools fared poorly in the National Achievement Test (NAT) last school year with some 67.10 percent of schools getting below average NAT scores, the Department of Education (DepEd) said. This prompted Education Secretary Armin Luistro to order school officials to exert greater effort in raising NAT scores among elementary and high school students. “To address the need to raise the learning outcomes among the schools which were classified under the poor achievement and lower average rates, all the divisions and the district supervisors are directed to provide intensive supervision to these schools,” said Luistro in an order issued this week. Luistro advised DepEd’s regional directors and the schools division/city superintendents together with their personnel and staff to plan together on how this intensive supervision could work successfully. DepEd order No. 72 dated September 20 showed that of roughly 5,600 secondary schools, some 67.10 percent of schools scored within the “lower average” range (26 and 50 percent correct) in NAT for second year high school students. Some 0.35 percent of schools scored between 0 and 25 percent. Only around a third of the high schools made it to the upper score ranges: 31.41 percent of schools scored between 51 percent and 75 percent, while only 1.13 percent of schools were rated superior, with a mean score of between 76 to 100 percent among its takers. Results were fairer among elementary schools......

Philippine Englishes

...English and Englishes in the Philippines: A World Englishes Approach to MTBMLE Isabel Pefianco Martin, Ateneo de Manila University Abstract ! In the past two years since DepEd Order 74 (series 2009) was implemented, teacher training sessions have been conducted that focussed on the development of teaching strategies and the preparation of instructional materials for teaching in multilingual settings. One area of utmost concern among basic education teachers, and often a source of anxiety to both teachers and parents, is how to approach the teaching of English using the first language (L1). This presentation hopes to address these concerns by proposing a World Englishes (WE) approach to English language teaching (ELT) in the Philippines. Introduction ! Just recently, a college freshman who interviewed me for his research paper on mother-tongue based multilingual education (MTBMLE) asked why I supported its promotion even it meant possibly losing my job as an English teacher. The question did not surprise me as it was something that I often encountered whenever teachers, especially English teachers in Metro Manila, are confronted with this unfamiliar creature that is MTBMLE. ! To many stakeholders of the English language--lawmakers, school administrators, teachers, and parents--MTBMLE is perceived as a threat. It is specifically perceived to be anti-English. These perceptions may be traced to beliefs about English that may largely be considered as...

...Philippines Ask any Filipino how many islands there are in the Philippines and you will invariably receive the answer in the form of another question, “High tide or low tide? The most common figure given is 7,107 during low tide and 7,100 during high tide, but nobody knows where these numbers come from. The official figure from the Department of Tourism is 7,107 islands. Known as the “Pearl of the Orient Sea” and the “Green Necklace of the Pacific” for the natural beauty of its string of islands sprawled like a necklace of gems against the backdrop of the vast blue Pacific Ocean, the Philippines was named Islas Filipinas (Philippine Islands) by Ruy Lopez de Villalobos when he claimed the group of islands for Spain in 1543. The name is in honor of Prince Phillip, who would later become Prince Philip II of Spain. The Republic of the Philippines (Fig.1) is an archipelago of more than 7,000 islands located southeast of mainland Asia and positioned along the Ring of Fire on the southwestern edge of the Pacific Ocean. Different bodies of water surround the country - South China Sea to the west, Sulu Sea to the Southwest, Celebes Sea to the south, and the Philippine Sea and Pacific Ocean to the east. The country is separated from Taiwan on the north by the Luzon Strait and from Malaysia on the southwest, by the Balabac Strait., The country’s overall land area is slightly larger than the size of Arizona. Although the country consists of thousands of islands,......

Philippines

...Introduction to the Philippines Separated from its Southeast Asian neighbours by the West Philippine Sea, the Philippines has always been a little different. As the only Asian nation colonized by the Spanish, this lush archipelago of dazzling beaches, year-round sun and warm, turquoise waters remains predominantly Roman Catholic, and culturally – a blend of Islamic, Malay, Spanish and American influences – it ofen feels light years away from the mainland, with a string of elegant colonial towns that have more in common with Latin America than the rest of Asia. It’s an enticing mix: all over the archipelago you’ll discover tantalizing food, friendly people and exurberant festivals. And the variety is astonishing: you can surf, islang-hop or dive pristine coral reefs in the morning and in the same day visit mysitical tribal villages, ancient rice terraces and jungle-smothered peaks. Indeed, the Philippines is often underrated and misunderstood by travelers and its Asian neighbours, casually, dismissed as a supplier of maids, tribute bands, mail-order brides and corrupt politicians, epitomized by the gaudy excesses of Imelda Marcos. Don’t be a put off: while poverty and corruption remain serious problems, the Philippines is far more complex –and culturally rich –than the stereotypes suggest. The Filipino people are variously descended from early Malay settlers, Muslim Sufis from the Middle East, Spanish conquistadors and friars, and later Chinese traders. It’s an old cliché, but...
