Educational Facilities Manual

Revised edition of the Handbook on Educational Facilities - Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction in School Construction

Schools constantly at risk of natural, man-made hazards
Clarissa C. David and Antonio Paguirigan, Jr. February 17, 2016
Philippine schools are battered every year by typhoons and floods. In some areas, they have to somehow go through an academic year amid the threat of armed conflict.
It does not take much to disrupt a school year. Events large or small can have negative effects on the quality and pace of learning of school children. If a school in the path of a Signal No. 1 storm is lucky enough to escape any physical damage, it might miss one or two days of classes. The unlucky ones in congested urban areas, for that same storm, might be used as an evacuation center, missing more than one school day. Once school starts back up, students might have to wade through floodwaters around and in the school grounds for several more days.

Through the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ School of Living Traditions, a cultural master teaches the skills and techniques of doing a traditional art or craft.
It takes mental precision to create intricate hand-woven patterns. To consistently do that is amazing.
Indeed, from hinabol of Higaonons in Bukidnon, tingkep of Pala’wan in Palawan, and monom of Teduray in Maguindanao, among other hand-woven crafts in the Philippines come with detailed designs that depict mastery of skill and patience with the unhurried way of life.
However with modern challenges, these artisanal traditions may disappear.

Quezon's Code of Citizenship and Ethics

On August 19, 1939, the occasion of his 61st birthday, President Manuel L. Quezon issued Executive Order No. 217 that prescribed a set of civic and ethical precepts collectively known as the Code of Citizenship and Ethics to be taught in all schools in the Philippines.

The list, a product of a committee composed of leading jurists and political luminaries organized by the President, would eventually be turned into a 71-page volume, complete with historical anecdotes and references to the virtues Filipinos have displayed throughout the years. In a letter to the President printed as a preface to the book, the Committee wrote, “The life of a nation depends upon the moral and civic virtue of its citizens. Now, more than ever, when nations, great and small, are on the verge of collapse do we realize this fundamental truth.” Video Aug 18, 2014
