In reality, most teachers took education because it’s the cheapest degree. It’s not their first choice, according to Senator Imee Marcos.

Truth Hurts on Education

Passion is needed to be successful in any field. The Philippines’ education is not an exemption. This is seldom the case if the teaching profession is only an alternative choice for most of the country’s teachers. However, they are a few who display their life skills during the pandemic. One is a teacher who resorts to online selling to survive the crisis. Senator Marcos is right that it is hard to find a committed teacher but it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. However, these few educators often struggle to influence their peers. Let alone their superiors because of the current system. Flexibility is not an option.

Life Skills

The senator explains that life skills are essential in the development of children. Thinking, interacting, managing, and leadership enhancements are crucial for nurturing a dynamic workforce in the country. The system must equip the current teachers with the resources for them to serve as models to their students.

Bashing Imee Marcos

Some media that are in favor of the opposition can only interpret Marcos’ statements as blaming the teachers. Senator Marcos’ theories are not mere speculations but are the procedures of the current emerging digital industries. Without the capabilities that she mentioned, it would be impossible to innovate. Filipinos must adapt to the changes quickly because those who can’t be simply left behind.
