Addressing the Challenges Faced by the Education Sector

According to the 2018 OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) results, Filipino students ranked the lowest among 79 countries in mathematics, science, and reading, with over 80% of students not reaching the minimum level of proficiency in reading. In a 2019research conducted by the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMMS), scores of Filipino students decreased by 61 points in mathematics and by 83 points in science from 2003 to 2019. The Southeast Asia Primary Learning Metrics (SEA-PLM) also found that in 2019, at least 83% of Grade 5 students scored below reading and mathematics standards expected for end of primary schooling.

According to the World Bank Philippines Report 2021: “Improving teacher quality in schools will mean attracting and selecting the best candidates into the teaching profession. To strengthen teacher quality, [we] should begin from selecting the right people into the profession. Policies in teacher recruitment and hiring should be aimed at increasing the attractiveness of the career, such as incentivizing high achievers to pursue teacher training and eventually enter into the profession.”

Mum Reviews: OneClass.com’s Free Tutoring Program With Livestreaming

The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted classes all over the world, keeping most students safe at home while we ride the virus out. This poses an additional challenge to mothers and parents who find themselves worrying about their children’s education and learning for the first time in a long time.

It is fortunate that some schools have stepped up and begun offering online classes to make up for the missed lessons and classes in school. But for children whose schools do not provide alternative learning, it is rather problematic and surely another thing to worry about for parents.

Today, I am sharing an awesome #mumfind for mums who are rather in a bind and finding themselves stressing about how to keep their children learning, and keep them away from their games and gadgets even for a little while, as they stay at home during this outbreak.

Education: “No Place Like Home” Philippine Homeschool Conventioin 2019

announcement, children, events, children learning, education, homeschooling, press release

“There is no school equal to a decent home, and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.” So goes a quote attributed to well-known nonviolence movement leader and Nobel Prize winner Mahatma Gandhi.

Indeed, truer words have never been said. After all, children first learn within the confines of their homes amidst loving parents and well-meaning caregivers. At home, children learn the basics of communicating, personal care, and proper conduct. It is within the safety of the home that they first learn about family, love, and security.

This is why we from Educating for Life or EFL want to gather together with our fellow homeschoolers as one community at the Philippine Homeschool Convention {PHC} 2019: to connect with and inspire one another to be the “teachers” and build the “schools” that Gandhi was talking about.

EFL, a group composed of four homeschooling moms, organizes events for homeschoolers and other individuals or groups that are into homeschooling and what we like to call “intentional education.” We have been organizing events for families ~ homeschoolers, in particular ~ since 2014.

This year, EFL, in partnership with Moneygment and SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, is pleased to present the No Place Like Home Philippine Homeschool Convention.

Believing that there is no place like home ~ especially when it comes to teaching our children—we invite our fellow parents to gather together at this year’s PHC so we can equip ourselves and bravely forge ahead in the difficult but extremely rewarding task of educating our children not just academically, but in other aspects too.

Character. Virtues. Life lessons. These are things that children don’t normally learn from textbooks and within classroom walls.

It is the essence of home, of family, of this virtuous calling of educating our children that we celebrate in the upcoming No Place Like Home: Philippine Homeschool Convention 2019.

To be held on 07 September, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City, this year’s convention will gather hundreds of Filipino parents and provide them with inspiration and encouragement to live out their calling as their children’s primary educators.
