Join us in the Education Nation

May 20th, 2009

May 18, at the University of the Philippines, the Education Nation had its MetroManila launch. Similar launch activities will follow in Baguio, Pampanga, Cebu, and Davao.

E-Net Philippines, of which ELF is a founding member, is one of the convenors of Education Nation which seeks to bring together all the groups and institutions campaigning for education reforms.

The Philippine Business for Education, PBEd, acted as the lead convenor. The idea of Education Nation was hatched at a workshop organized by PBEd in Cebu in early March.

Although the focus of the campaign is on improving the formal, school-based, basic education system, Education Nation has accepted the advocacy of E-Net (and ELF) for building ALS or alternative learning systems for out of school youth and adults.

Education Nation sees its work as long-term and strategic. But because of the May 2010 elections, it seeks to make education reform one of the main issues in the election campaign, especially for the presidency. Hence its call for “an education government” and “an education president.”

  1. I am development communication (devcom) student from the University of the Philippines Los Banos. We are planning for a national congress for devcom students and practitioners which focuses on the roles of devcom and new media in empowering the youth during the elections. It will be a 3-day congress.

    In line with this, we are hoping you could help us in selecting topics for the forums during the said event.

    We are hoping for your positive response.
