A Study of the Philippine Values Education Programme (1986-1993).
Quisumbing, Lourdes R.
This study explores the Philippine experience in values development. The primary goal of providing values education at all three levels of the school system in the Philippines is the development of a person committed to building a free, democratic, peaceful, and progressive nation. The program hopes to develop Filipinos who possess the following values and traits: (1) self actualization, people imbued with a sense of human dignity; (2) a sense of responsibility for community and environment, self-discipline; (3) productivity, contributory to the economic security and development of the family and nation; (4) a deep sense of nationalism, commitment to the progress of the nation and to global solidarity; and (5) an abiding faith in God and spirituality. General guidelines specify that the program must: (1) be oriented towards the whole learner; (2) consider the unique role of the family in personal development and integration into society and the nation; and (3) recognize and emphasize the role of teachers who themselves must possess a proper sense of values and respect for the person of the student. Values development is discussed from the viewpoints of learning theorists or behaviorists, cognitive developmentalists, and psychoanalysts. Implementing values education is divided into objectives for the elementary grades, at the secondary level, and at the tertiary level. Orientation workshops for administrators, trainers, and teachers are discussed. Problems and recommendations are listed. Contains 15 references. (DK)
