Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

Senator urges govt to assist smaller private universities with putting up online systems

CALOOCAN CITY, Aug. 9 (PIA) -- Senator Win Gatchalian is pushing for increased government support for small and medium-sized private universities’ transition to flexible learning and putting up costly online systems amid the COViD-19 pandemic.

“Smaller universities may have a difficult time in acquiring an online system. My fear is if we don’t help the small, medium private universities and more than 50 percent of the population in our universities will be affected,” Gatchalian added.

In a Senate panel hearing, Gatchalian raised that these smaller institutions have limited financial capacity and technical expertise to install online and flexible learning systems.

Without the systems and expertise to implement remote learning, the students of these small schools would eventually suffer, the senator explained.

“I found out that an online system is very expensive. It’s not cheap,” Gatchalian said during the hearing, citing the experience of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela, which recently subscribed to an application to deliver full online learning.

“Smaller universities may have a difficult time in acquiring an online system. My fear is if we don’t help the small, medium private universities and more than 50 percent of the population in our universities will be affected,” Gatchalian added.

To recall, a flexible approach to teaching and learning means students can learn when, where and how they prefer it to be.

According to Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chairperson Prospero De Vera III, there are more than 1,000 small private universities catering to around 525,000 students nationwide.

The CHED Chairperson added that there are more students enrolled in private higher education institutions (HEIs) compared to public tertiary institutions.

Based on CHED data, there are 1,833,170 students (53.87 percent) enrolled in private HEIs while 1,575,645 (46.22 percent) are enrolled in public institutions.

He added that while free software can be used to develop learning management systems, small private universities tend to have a shortage in hardware and manpower for these systems.

Under the Bayanihan to Recover As One Act (Senate Bill No. 1564) or Bayanihan 2.0, three billion pesos is allocated to create “smart” campuses in State Universities and Colleges (SUCs). This entails investments in information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure, acquisition of learning management systems, and other equipment to implement flexible learning. CHED, however, seeks to expand the coverage of this budget so that small private universities will also be covered.

To help learning institutions affected by lockdown measures, Bayanihan 2.0 also seeks to develop a loan program by appropriate government financial institutions (GFIs) to help academic institutions prepare for the implementation of blended learning.

For Gatchalian, the challenges hounding the education sector add urgency to enacting Bayanihan 2.0, which will finally make much-needed funding available for academic institutions ahead of the school year’s opening.

“Ang pagkakaroon ng moderno at matatag na sistema ng edukasyon ay mahalaga sa pagbangon ng ating bansa mula sa mga naging epekto ng pandemya,” he said.

“Hindi na natin dapat paghintayin pa ang modernisasyon ng ating mga paaralan, kabilang ang ating mga pamantasan, upang maipagpatuloy natin ang edukasyon at matugunan ang pangangailangan ng ating mga mag-aaral,” Gatchalian added. (PIA NCR)

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.
