Education in the Philippines:-
The education system in the Philippines has been heavily influenced by the country’s colonial history. This history has included periods of Spanish, American and Japanese rule and occupation. The greatest and most lasting contributions came during the American occupation of the country which began in 1898. It was during this period that English was introduced as the primary language of instruction and a system of public education was established for the first time – A system inspired by the United States school system and administered by the new Department of Instruction.
The United States has left a lasting impression on the Philippine school system. Several colleges and universities have been founded for the purpose of training the nation’s teachers. In the year 1908, the University of the Philippines was chartered, representing the first comprehensive public university in the history of the country.
Like the United States, the Filipino nation has an extensive and highly inclusive education system, including higher education these days. The United States continues to influence the educational system of the Philippines, as many teachers and professors in the country have earned advanced degrees from American universities.
Structure of education in the Philippines:
Education in the Philippines is offered through formal and non-formal systems. Formal education generally extends over 14 years and is structured according to a 6 + 4 + 4 system: 6 years of primary education, 4 years of secondary education leading to a baccalaureate. It is one of the shortest durations of formal education in the world.
Although English was the sole language of instruction in the Philippines from 1935 to 1987, the new constitution mandated that Filipino (Tagalog) and English be the official language of instruction and communication.
