Broadcast journalist Tina Monzon-Palma will assess Department of Education’s home study program that aims to ease overcrowding of students in public school classrooms this Thursday (June 14) in “Krusada.”
Under the program, students don’t have to go to school everyday. Instead they learn their lessons at home using modules based on the regular curriculum and meet with teachers only on weekends.
While the program is expected to decongest classrooms, legislators such as Rep. Raymond Palatino are strongly opposing the program as it allegedly results in ineffective study habits.
How can the government solve overcrowding and lack of decent classrooms in public schools? Is the home study program just another band-aid solution to one of Philippine education’s perennial problems?
Because it takes more than words to take a stand on Philippine education, watch “Krusada” with Tina this Thursday (June 14) after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN or watch it earlier on DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable Channel 26), 9:15 p.m.
