DR. FILMA G. BRAWNER Director SCIENCE EDUCATION INSTITUTE Department of Science and Technology

2 Good Practices in the Philippine Education System
for Science and Mathematics Special Mathematics and Science Curriculum in Basic Education (PSHS System and DepEd) Regular Curriculum (with Science and Mathematics Electives) Research Courses and Activities Mentoring by Scientists Opportunities for Participation in Olympiads/Competitions Systems Approach to developing gifted/talented students (elementary to tertiary level) Scholarships for with talents or aptitude in Science and Mathematics

3 The Philippine Educational System
To formulate and implement policies and programs for the efficient operation of the higher education system Tertiary/Higher Education (Baccalaureate and Post-Baccalaureate degrees) Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Department of Education (DepEd) Elementary, Secondary and Non-formal Education *implementation of K-12 program Post-Secondary Education To provide middle-level manpower training and development To provide the school age population and young adults with basic skills, knowledge and values Trifocal Education System
