The Full Report for the Policy Recommendations for the Basic Education Sector Reform Agenda for the National Language and Literacy Learning Strategies for the Filipino and English Languages
(submitted Sept. 30, 2006)
This is my virtual repository for this confidential report to the Department of Education of the government of the Philippines. Also included is the powerpoint presentation I use to discuss the issue of languages of learning for Filipino children.
If you stumbled upon this page, then it is quite by accident, rather than by design, as I have not announced that these pages exist on the web. Please be judicious when you use the contents.
The policy research on this page is supposed to inform the DepEd programs on language and literacy as well as the curriculum.
It is a pity that some legislators think that there is no need to consider the research and the knowledge of education practitioners about how people and children learn when making laws that pertain to education -- particularly the languages of learning and the medium of instruction. Their knee-jerk reaction to the need to fill up the quotas of business processing organizations such as transcriptions and call centers will put our children in schools at a learning disadvantage for their entire school careers, which will redound on more future economic and employment problems.
