The threshold of excellent academic performance!

LAST YEAR was the threshold of excellent academic performance and positive replications by the administrator, teachers and students. This year is another vintage – a good business to touch off in terms of student-teacher learning and teaching performances in order to soar up steadily or with its MPS target by almost 100 percent as one of the main educational aims as benchmarks for quality of education in the Philippines, especially in the public schools.


            The standard of education serves as an eventual capacity for grasping at student’s performance and for threshing out some innovative strategies to take on board for the benefits not only of the students in particular but also of the school in general.
            This school year speaks for academic excellence among Mingscians who want to spin out or go on with their studies even in college on account of the zeal in quality of education. Students will always abide by the rules and regulations and the benchmark of education itself is strictly agreed by the mentors in this learning institution.
            According to Dr. Ermetes F. Adolfo, Jr., one of the mentors here, teaching is dedicated to those who devote their lives to their belief that learning gives rise to liberty, that education is the life blood of democracy. The vision of a future where people will live together in harmony, tolerance and mutual respect is not something to dream of, but something to struggle and work for. Teachers are in the forefront of this battle.
            On the part of students, it is important to note that the topics for discussions are those brought up by the interests of the students themselves, and not imposed by the teacher. This is a guarantee that the ensuing philosophical inquiry remains relevant to the needs and interests of the students. The students are encouraged to think divergently and test out a wide diversity of possible answers to the questions raised. 
            Moreover, it is emphasized that the students do not just achieve a solution to a problem, but each solution that is offered be given a fair hearing and that the judgment of the best solution be based on sound reasoning. All opinions should have some appeal to reasons as their support. In order to stress this point to the students, it is important that the teachers develop their keen ears so as to be able to ask effective follow-up questions which encourage the students to seek out the reasons for their views.
            The goal is that through the give-and-take of common inquiry, each student will internalize the good reasoning habits of the group. In effect, the student’s thinking ability will be a mental model of the process of inquiry carried out by the class as a whole; cognizance of alternative views was being taken into account, just to arrive at a well-grounded conclusion.
            The Access school paper has nothing to do against DepEd policy or system of education. What it concerns too much is the educational system itself that is being administered. That’s why, in behalf of the administrators, teachers and students, there are important things to consider here, so that good implementations will not put into waste and oblivion. They are as follows:
           1) To receive the moral and material recognition appropriate to their level of qualifications and responsibilities; 
           2) To have adequate working conditions, including at least basic equipment for their task; 
           3) To have a salary comparable to other professions with the same level of qualifications and responsibilities, so as to make it possible for them to live with dignity on the salary from their work; 
           4) To be given professional and academic freedom to find the methods and classroom approach that best meet the democratically dedicated objectives of the educational system;
           5) To quadrate with the teacher’s capacity by leading his/her students to discover themselves the truths and their willingness to live up to these truths; and 
           6) To understand deeply that a teacher can help the students realize that there is so much in life to learn and so much reasons for them to be happy whatever status they are in.
            To reiterate our stand on the issue, quality of education is right here at MNSHS. Zeal in quality of education is at its peak. That’s why this year is a vintage for everybody, a good business to touch off in terms of student-teacher learning and teaching performances in order to soar up steadily or with its MPS target by almost 100 percent as one of the main educational aims as benchmarks for quality of education, especially in this learning institution.
