Agarao-Fernandez, Editha; de Guzman, Allan B.
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v4 n2-3 p129-144 Aug 2005
Teaching might not be the most popular profession in the world but it is undoubtedly the most populated. There are indeed some 57 million teachers in the world, about two thirds of whom work in the developing world. Over the years, the teacher and the teaching profession in the Philippines have been confronted by various issues and concerns that are directly or indirectly affecting them. The dynamics of the profession offers a fertile ground for debates and discussions. This paper presents a panoramic view of teacher education in the Philippines in the light of the following contextual variables: milieu, matter, materials, method and mastery.
