Adoption of distance learning program pushed




by Mario Casayuran
June 12, 2014



Quote:
Manila, Philippines — Sen. Cynthia A. Villar has pushed for the adoption of distance learning program, which she said provides for a more flexible system of education that would significantly bring down the number of students dropping out of school.


Villar, chairperson of the Senate government corporations and public enterprises committee, co-sponsored Senate Bill 2274, or the “Open Learning and Distance Education Act of 2014,’’ just before Congress adjourned sine die last Wednesday night.

Fail.


Students in public school unsatisfied with state of schools


MANILA – Students of Batasan Hills National High School in Quezon City gave the performance of the Department of Education (DepEd) a failing mark in terms of providing the necessary infrastructure, learning materials and support to make schools conducive for learning.

(snipped)

There were 140 respondents to the survey, with 110 students choosing “unlike” and only 30 students “liked” the state of their school.

I think it is better if there will be no mandatory foreign language subjects in college except perhaps English. Much of the global economy still runs with English what with its ability to absorb other languages (which it has been doing in the past 500 years) and its widespread use as a medium between both native English speakers and non-native speakers. Its pretty much 'the' international language of the modern world.

Other foreign languages will have to be offered as optional subjects or as elective courses. I'm sure Spanish or French or Mandarin becoming a replacement for Filipino is not going to be any more effective than the latter.

I have 18 units as of the moment and even that is already quite a number of subjects. It would be better for college students to take only major subjects so they can begin to do part-time work elsewhere, helping with academic expenses and the like.

Agree.

Yes, I think it will be optional in college. All general educ subjects including optional/ elective subjects will be taken in senior high school (depends on the track the student will choose)

All language subjects (bulk of the required/necessary units) will be taken in the primary and secondary level. In college, it will depend on the course you will take.

Solar power project set for Metro schools




By Riza T. Olchondra
Philippine Daily Inquirer

The Department of Energy (DOE) will be helping Metro Manila schools reduce their dependence on the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) through the installation of solar power systems on various campuses.


Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla on Friday said the DOE would be launching its “solar rooftop program” in July, with the Manuel L. Quezon University in Manila as pilot site.

those foreign language subjects such as spanish, french, german, mandarin including filipino which are part of the college's curriculum as general education requirement should be offered only as electives or a minor and not a mandatory subject. instead, those foreign language subjects will be replaced with an intensive english language program to include esl (reading, writing, speaking and comprehension), grammar and literature, speech improvement, argumentation and debate and vocational or business english and other english courses that will be helpful to our college students when they graduate and look for jobs.

Almario


National Artist fights for retention of Filipino subject in college



BY E.J. CARLEON
JUNE 17, 2014


Quote:
Almario echoes the position of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ National Committee on Language and Translation (NCCA-NCLT), who not only opposed the CHED memo and asked the commission to review it again, but also pushed for the inclusion of nine more mandatory subjects in the college curriculum.


The move was also supported by the Pambansang Samahan sa Linggwistika at Literaturang Filipino, Ink. (PSLLF) by promoting a petition at change.org launched by De La Salle University professor David Michael San Juan urging CHED to reconsider the NCCA-NCLT proposal.

scrapping filipino subject in college curriculum is the better option so that those who dont speak it wont be wasting their time and effort learning the subject na wala naman ka kuwenta2x and now they are proposing for 9 more subjects in filipino? the cebuanos/bisaya and those with dominant mother tongue dont see any benefit from taking those extra subjects.

Colleges, universities urged to work with DepEd to save professors’ jobs
Thousands fear being displaced by Senior High School program



by Ina Hernando Malipot
June 17, 2014



Quote:
Education Secretary Armin Luistro urged yesterday Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to work together with the Department of Education (DepEd) to mitigate the negative impact of the K to 12 Program – particularly to faculty members who might be displaced due to the implementation of the Senior High School (SHS) Program.


In a statement, Luistro said that if both private and public HEIs work together with DepEd, “I believe we can bring down the number of affected faculty and mitigate the negative impact of the K to 12 implementation.”

Professors of Filipino breaking bad over CHED memo



By MARK ANGELES
(Updated 12:39 p.m., June 15, 2014)






Quote:
College professors who teach Filipino and supporters of the Filipino language in general are contesting a Commission on Higher Education (CHED) memorandum that will remove the teaching of Filipino from the General Education Curriculum (GEC).


The Pambansang Samahan sa Linggwistika at Literaturang Filipino, Ink. (PSLLF), an organization that promotes the use of Filipino, has thrown its support behind the NCCA-NCLT resolution by promoting a change.org petition which asks the CHED and Congress to include the nine Filipino units in the GEC. The online and written petition letters were initiated by De La Salle University Filipino professor David Michael San Juan.

I agree with this. there's really NO value added in learning any Filipino language (or dialect for that matter) "in Tertiary level" unless you are a language major, of course. First, students already get to learn the Filipino language during Basic Education. I think 10+ so years is already enough... Second, okay... some would say what about English? but English is an international business language so its just practical to learn it even in university. but Filipino? do we really need to learn the concepts of Pandiwa, Panghalip, Pandiwari, Pangngalang Pantangi at Pambalana and the likes "In detail" for us to be able to communicate properly (in Filipino) in our daily lives?

I mean, has anyone ever experienced being asked questions like... ano ang pangngalang pantangi ng tanggapan na iyong pinapasukan? hahaha! :p

9 units of filipino in college?! What for? Stupidest idea.

No wonder it was proposed to have English language courses for lawyers because of their poor English.

Those who are batting for Filipino language in college failed to realize that the subject will still be offered in Grade 11 and 12, the equivalent of First year and second year college if there is no K-12.

Betraying the Filipino language
By ANTONIO P. CONTRERAS June 17, 2014

Quote:
One just has to compare our situation with the poor-in-English but richer countries such as Korea, Taiwan and Japan where the medium of instruction is their national languages, to know how tragic the colonial legacy of fetishizing English was for us.
Quote:
The ultimate curse of colonization that lives even up to now is when the language of the colonizer is deemed as a more acceptable unifier of our multiple selves, rather than the Filipino that is so resented for its being the language of the Tagalogs, who are in fact one of us.

too bad the feeling down south is totally the opposite and it doesnt mean that we are less patriotic than those people up north who speak a pseudo national language. this is the 21st century where everyone demands fairness and equality in everything we do as a nation.

No more Filipino in college: Yay or nay?


(snipped)

However, it is viewed by some that learning English instead of Filipino would be more beneficial to undergrads in preparation for future employment. The University of the Philippines Diliman – Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute, on its Web site, states that “communication courses in English are recommended” while “students are highly discouraged from taking [Filipino communication courses].”

Yes. wala naman talagang problema. Nagkataon lang na inilagay sa "high school" actually senior high school ang Filipino. So hindi nabawasan yung units. Unless of course, CHED will change their mind because of a strong lobby coming from many groups.

http://kickerdaily.com/national-arti...ct-in-college/

Almario - the same idiot who wants to change "Pilipinas" to "Filipinas". he actually tampered with government documents, changing "P" to "F" without the permission of the President or Congress.

Not content with changing "P" to "F", the Almario-led KWF also tampered with the spelling of the Ilocano language:


Writers hit 'unauthorized' amendment to Ilocano spelling


KWF wants to apply the Ortograpiyang Pambansa to all Philippine languages. In other words, he wants to apply the orthography of Filipino (which is basically Tagalog) to all Philippine languages. more stupidity.





Ispeling.


And so I invite you all to please sign this petition on Change.org:

Immediately remove Virgilio S. Almario from office as Chairman, Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino.
