PADRE GARCIA PIONEERS IN CONDUCT OF BARANGAY EDUCATION SUMMIT IN SOUTHERN TAGALOG AREA

 

The Municipality of Padre Garcia recently conducted a series of Barangay Education Summits for all the seventeen (17) public elementary schools of the municipality. The Summits were conducted between July 15, 2014 to September 18, 2014 with the end view of determining the primary problems of each barangay’s public education sector. Representatives of various sectors who are key education stakeholders in each barangay were present in each Summit to enable each sector to have a voice in the deliberations, while ensuring their support and cooperation for the resulting Work Programs.

 

According to the Summits’ proponent, Vice Mayor Noel C. Cantos, SB Committee Chair on Education, “Bilang Tagalangulo ng Lupon ng Edukasyon, naalarma po tayo sa kasalukuyang estado ng ating edukasyon dito sa Padre Garcia. Patuloy na bumababa ang nakukukang resulta ng ating mga estudyante sa National Achievement Test o NAT – isang indikasyon na mayroon tayong kinakailangang baguhin kung nais nating makamit ang pananaw nating maging globally-competitive ang ating mga anak pagdating ng panahon.” (“As the Chair on the Committee on Education, I was alarmed at the current state of education ucation, I was alamed  pananaw nating maging globally-competitive ang ating e gete municipaliin Padre Garcia. The results obtained by our students in the National Achievement Test or NAT continued to deteriorate – an indication that we need to change something if we want our children to be globally-competitive when the time comes.”)

 

According to data gathered from the Department of Education, the NAT results of Padre Garcia students have been on a steady decline from 82.30% in SY 2010-2011 to an all-time low of 52.56% in SY 2013-2015.

 

Mayor Abraham A. Gutierrez, Local School Board Chair, on the other hand, reminded parents to be more mindful of their responsibilities as parents, “Baka po sa paghahangad nating makapagbigay ng mas magandang buhay sa ating pamilya ay nakakaligtaan na natin ang pangunahing responsibilidad sa ating mga anak – ang sila ay gabayan at suportahan sa kanilang  pag-aaral.” (It might happen that in our desire to give better lives to our families, we would forget our primary responsibility to our children – which is to guide them and support them in their education.”)

 

Stakeholders were rallied during each Summit and each sector came up with their individual projects that they will spearhead themselves and implement within SY 2014-2015. Vice Mayor Cantos also announced an incentive of ten thousand pesos (P10,000.00) to the public elementary school that will achieve the highest average score in the forthcoming NAT.

 

Each Summit culminated with the signing of a Covenant stating the various Projects and Activities each sector had committed to implement for SY 2014-2015, which in turn would be monitored by all stakeholders.

 

The conduct of the Barangay Education Summits was made possible also with the assistance of the Synergeia Foundation Inc. – one of the primary non-government organizations involved in the promotion of quality, affordable and accessible education throughout the Philippines.
