The Philippine Experience in Curriculum Development for Population Education: The State of the Art. Population Education Research Utilization. Monograph Series 1, Part 1.
Arellano-Reyes, Ma. Felicitas; Villanueva, Carmelita L.
This booklet reviews the development and implementation of population education programs in the Philippines. Section one describes the Population Education Program (PEP), a national program sponsored by the Philippine Department of Education and UNESCO. PEP's goals are to develop curriculum, train teachers, and encourage research for population education in colleges as well as in elementary and secondary schools. Section two outlines the functions of the Research Utilization Program of the Philippine Population Center Foundation. The program facilitates the application of biomedical, educational, and social scientific research to policy and practice. The main section of the report describes six different programs in terms of development and evaluation of materials for in-school population education. One program is the PEP; four others, sponsored by Filipino institutions of higher education, develop materials for elementary and secondary schools; and one program was initiated in a grade school. The in-depth discussion of the six programs covers problems of teacher training, parent attitudes, curriculum content at various grade levels, teaching strategies, and evaluation and revision of materials. Concluding sections provide abstracts of 17 resources on population education and a bibliography of approximately 50 citations. (AV)
