MANILA, Philippines- Itinutulak ng Commission on Higher Education (CHED) ang inclusive education sa ilalim ng administrasyon ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
Sa press briefing sa Malakanyang, tinanong si CHED chairperson Prospero de Vera III kung anong programa ng komisyon ang nais nitong isulong at suportahan ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
Ang pangangailangan na magkaroon ng ‘equity’ pagdating sa admission process ng educational system ng bansa ang naging tugon nito.
“It is time that we focus on equity – meaning a conscious effort to identify the groups that we need to bring to university education that can be marginalized because of the admission process and the competitiveness,” ayon kay De Vera.
“So, we are pushing that for the next five years, we will focus on inclusive education of telling our public universities to be very conscious in identifying students from public schools, students from poverty areas, the children of indigenous people, those have been marginalized to assist them pass the admission test because once they get into public education they don’t anymore pay tuition and miscellaneous fees and they can be assisted,” dagdag na wika ni De Vera.
“So, we want that to be the moving forward for the Marcos administration – an administration that will make sure inclusive education is realized,” aniya pa rin.
Para naman kay Department of Education spokesperson Michael Poa, sinabi nito na itinutulak ng ahensiya ang pag-institutionalize sa “blended learning” sa Pilipinas bilang permanente sa education system.
“We feel that alongside iyong traditional solutions natin of hiring more teachers, building more classrooms to address the shortages, hindi po kasi mabilis o hindi nagagawa iyan overnight [it’s not that fast or it can’t be accomplished overnight]– that’s why these problems are still with us today,” ayon kay Poa.
Samantala, kapwa naman nakipagpulong ang CHED at DepEd kay Pangulong Marcos, Martes ng umaga, Hulyo 10 para talakayin ang mga accomplishments ng mga ahensiya. Kris Jose
