Education in Philippines: A lesson For The World

Philippines has 90 million people living on more than 7,100 islands, 40% of them live on less than $2 per day. Living with such few resources it is not easy to achiev the millennium development goal to get all children into primary school (MDG2) but the government is taking solid steps in that direction.
According to Jess Mateo, assistant secretary at the department of education: "We remain confident because of the programmes and interventions we have put in place."
Free lunches are provided to the undernourished pupils. Distance learning, subsidies for poor families and child-centred learning techniques in Philippines are helping to keep children in school and are pushing the country closer to the goal of universal primary education.
