s already been described as a rather inferior quality of education. should we really impose a certain language as the primary medium of instruction? my prof said " dapat na gamitin na lenggwahe o wika sa pagtuturo ay ang winiwika rin ng batang tinuturuan upang sa gayon magkaintindihan at lubos na matuto ang bata :) got it??

Those who support the 2003 Executive Order filed by President Arroyo on the other hand argue that doing away with English as the medium of instruction will inevitably hurt the country and our people more because they believe that a less competitive workforce will emerge. 3 months ago, I would have been right on the side of government. I recognize that learning to speak and write in English in this age of globalization is necessary especially if we would like to be able to compete in the knowledge-based world. But if we look at things realistically, it seems like our public education system is just not set up for this yet. I understand that standards are needed and must be met. t we perhaps just be a bit more liberal with our views? t teachers be allowed to use the most effective communication tools that will allow them to articulate their lesson plans best? t that, in the end, help their students to grasp the material better and truly learn? We start to learn our own, and our own way will lead us to know another way.
Having had the opportunity to travel and study abroad, I fully recognize the value of being able to speak and write fluently in English. Posted by: Lourdes Villanueva Date posted: Jun 20,2007got cha! It is just like this, we learn english because we know filipino language,.
