Philippines: The Role of Language and Education in Globalization
Quijano, Consuelo A.
International education has never been discussed in-depth by many citizens of the Philippines. International education refers to a study abroad program or an approach to prepare students to function in a global society. The focus of discussion is more on primary, secondary, and tertiary education. In any level of education, language plays a vital role in the curriculum. It is also imperative to understand the history of Philippine education. The Philippines was colonized by the Spaniards for more than three centuries. Free public school system was established during the first decade of American rule. The country underwent changes and these foreign influences have contributed to the schools' policies and curriculum. My intent is to identify the country's major problems, the strengths and/or weaknesses of the education system in the Philippines.
