Kubling Yaman ng Cama Juan – A Documentary on the Plight of High School Graduates in the Philippines
Sandra Aguinaldo was invited to talk about her I-Witness Documentary for GMA 7 entitled “Kubling Yaman ng Cama Juan” during the Teacher’s Recess. Before showing the episode to the audience, Ms. Sandra gave us a short introduction about the documentary. According to her, this documentary was made in 2011 and shot in one of the public schools in Nueva Ecija.
Why does I-Witness make educational stories and documentaries?
Special Education Philippines was invited to Palarong Pambansa 2012 at Pangasinan as one of the official DepEd bloggers. Arriving at Dagupan on May 6, 2012, we were welcomed by NCR Regional Director Rizalino Jose “Joriz” Rosales and the teachers from Dagupan West Central Elementary School.
This school year has about less than two months before it ends and next school year DepEd will launch its K to 12 Program to pre-selected schools both private and public.
Special Education Philippines was supposed to release the last three video clips we have taken during the K to 12 Pre-Summit Conference last December 2011. However, due to the urgency of this announcement, we will delay that until next Monday to give you this special announcement for the expanded early registration of children and youth with disabilities.
Below is a collection of video clips from the K to 12 Pre-Summit Conference held last December 2011 expressing different criticisms and concerns raised by both the media and the Department of Education itself about the K to 12 Basic Education Program.
Public high schools in the Philippines offering Special Education (SPED) get subsidy for SY 2012 – 2013
There is an amazing news for public high schools offering SPED in the Philippines this coming school year 2012 – 2013.
The Department of Education completes its financial assistance to differently-abled learners for school year 2012-2013 by releasing funds to secondary schools that offer special education (SPED) after releasing funds earlier to some 278 elementary SPED centers.
Education Secretary Armin Luistro said 153 secondary schools implementing the SPED program which submitted enrolment data shall be granted subsidy for the effective delivery of service to students with exceptionalities.
“When we say exceptionalities, we mean students who have difficulty learning because either they are visually or hearing- impaired, have autism or Down Syndrome or other learning disabilities and therefore need special educational attention,” explained Luistro.
