The Day I Spent Teaching In The Philippines (Without Any Warning)
Published on March 28, 2010
Philippine Education, basic probles that I my self have had experienced,,in this exact particlar public school; not only the shortage of classroom or small area of the school building resulting to big class size,,but with what I experienced,teachers have problems of thier own,,and the most obvious is the low salary and a terrible working condition.Many public school teacher opt to have 'S' as we called in abreviation '' SIDELINES'' during class sometimes thew teacher simple forgot to teachs, but who can blame them? If thier salaries around 9,000 to 10,000 pesos plus ,with deductibles whoa caqn provides,, but with the rising cost of living this money is not enough,
How could you teach well?In a class of the ratio of student to a teacher, in a typical public school,, in every one teacher there are 60 to 70 students in a class! I was once experienced this working condition..But I still love being once a philippine public school teacher anyway....
Thats the reality of the Philippines Public school education
for shortage of classrooms or small land area of the the school building - thus resulting to big class size on every section per year level. A lot of teachers have throat infection prblems because they have to adjust the volume of their voice inorder to be heard. No good ventilations may cause sudden hypertension attack . Despite of these, teachers are still motivated to continue their vocation - TEACHING! The good values of the kids just like a CORE. It started in the family first(home) then expanded up to the community and school. To have education is the only Key towards success and attain a good quality of life to their future and hope for the nation as well.
Manila is really one of the most polluted city in the entire world...buses, jeepney's and tricycles everywhere in the city....sad really....the government can't do anything to minimized transportation so it could minus the pollution in our country. But I am still proud to have our "pagmamano" gesture as a sign of respect to the olders, it passes to generation to generation...and teachers contributes their good teaching even how big they'll handle a class...it is for the students what they learn..
