Mobile teachers bridge education gap in remote villages of Philippines

Views: 135

In Philippines, mobile teachers are providing basic education to out-of-school youth and adults, who still want to learn.

Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the President of Philippines has asked the Department of Education (DepEd) to beef up its “mobile teachers” program by hiring more teachers to serve under its Alternative Learning System (ALS). The government has increased the budget for learning from P76-million in 2006 to P230-million in 2007, so that the Bureau of Alternative Learning System (BALS) can hire 300 more mobile teachers. These mobile teachers go from house to house to determine the number of non-readers in every household and select the learning modules that suit the clients' learning needs.
