Writer Earl Rosero sent us this news item on Noynoy Aquino’s intended plans for Philippine education:

“Noynoy says: “The Philippines has the shortest education cycle preparatory to university. Ours is 10 years; the rest of the world is 12. In short, we have a curriculum that, on paper, covers the same subject matter as the rest of the world but which we cram into 10, instead of 12, years. This means that our teachers take all kinds of short cuts to try to cover the material or just simply do not attempt to cover the entire syllabus in a given year for lack of material time. This shortchanges our children’s education.”

Isagani Cruz wrote about this plan on Noynoy’s website. Read the entire column here.
