The 10 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Teacher Awardees of 2016 are comprised of four elementary teachers, four high school teachers and two college teachers. They were presented together with the 2016 awardees of the Country’s Outstanding Police Officers in Service and Soldiers collectively known as Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos in a formal awarding ceremony on September 5, 2016 as part of Metrobank’s 54th anniversary celebration. They received cash award amounting to Php 500,000.00, a medal and a trophy and were awarded plaque of recognition during the recognition rites led by President Rodrigo R. Duterte at the Malacañang Palace last September 12.

“The series of screenings were very rigid and tough but at long last with God’s help, I survived and prevailed,” said Kathy in her speech during the program in recognition of her achievements held at the AC grounds.

She is an advocate of combining vital teaching skills with technology to better engage the 21st century learners. In line with this, she pioneered the development of the NVGCHS English online Facebook page which promotes continued academic discussion online resulting in better performance of her students. DepEd has likewise tapped her as trainer for its Computerization Program.

For more than 30 years, Search for Outstanding Teachers has shown respect and esteem to the teaching profession, acknowledging those who exhibit competence, remarkable dedication to their work and effective educational leadership, as well as their various community involvements. It is implemented by MBFI in partnership with the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education.#cdp

COCOPEA North Luzon Consultation
November 27, 2010  at the University of Baguio, Baguio City

I. COMPREHENSIVE POLICY IMPACT ANALYSIS

The formulation of Policy for the K+12 Education System requires rigorous systems analysis. Many patchwork of issues, opinions and statistical analysis have already been presented by so many sectors in so many meetings and consultations.  But what is more important to see now is the entire picture, the whole tapestry of Cause-Effects and Costs-Benefits that the policy, if adopted, will create.

Actually we did this partially today. But it seems we also need the help of Education Economists to prepare a comprehensive policy impact analysis and simulate varying policy options under different policy assumptions and conditions.

II. DIFFERENT CONDITIONS, DIFFERENT ASSUMPTIONS, DIFFERENT POLICIES

Different conditions generate different assumptions, which in turn create different policies. The success of any policy depends on the correctness of its policy assumptions.

Taking this fact into consideration, should we make policy assumptions based on current realities? Or should policy be based on policy conditions we would want to happen, but which may not exist by the time we start implementing the policy? Continue reading
