INTRODUCTION

There are common situations encountered by teachers with regard to

Students’ school attendance and academic performance, the problem arising

from the situations, and EASE as solution.

Most teachers agree that the problem about students’ leave of absence

Can be minimized more rationally and systematically, if the school has in place,

An alternative program for students who are on leave for justifiable reasons.

EASE was developed by the Bureau of Secondary Education and was adopted

This is one of the strategic components of Dropout Reduction Program (DORP).

EASE is an acronym for Effective Alternative Secondary Education. The

program offers flexible time option to certain students who cannot report to class

during certain seasons of the school year for the various reasons. The program

provides printed self-learning modules for students to use thereby allowing them

to continue their lessons and classroom activities on their own convenient time

the Philippines).

Review of Related Literature

The Education Department works to lower drop out rates through a more

flexible schooling program. The Effective Alternative Secondary Education

Project, or Project EASE, is a program designed by the Dept. of Education and in

the coordination with the Southeast Asian Ministers for Educational Innovation

and Technology. It targets regular High School students who intermittently miss

classes due to various reasons. Project EASE is not a total replacement for a

regular classes; rather it is designed for studentswhi will only miss a part of the

school year (such as planting and harvesting season)to be able to continue their

studies.

Project EASE uses a module based approach-students. They are given

modules to take home and be able to study their lessons outside the classroom.

It was launched in 1997, with the Davao City National High School among the

first pilot schools to implement this program. The program is now available in the
Public High School nationwide, and is now part of the Drop-out Reduction

Program (www.en.wikipilipinas.org/index.php).

Specific objectives are to:

1. Improve the holding power of the school;

2. Strengthen school and family partnership in order to reduce student drop


out rate; and

3. Increase students’ capabilities for independent self-managed learning.

PROJECT EASE IN ACTION

Education is a priceless legacy we can bequeath to our children. Through

education their potentials for personal development and nation building are

actualized. Therefore, regardless of age, sex, intelligence, ethnicity socio-

economic status, or religious persuasion everyone must have adequate access

to quality education (by: Ms. Lolita M. Andrada, Dir. IV of Bureau of Secondary

Education, Dept. of Education). Project EASE is one program offered by DEPED

to give importance to our education.

RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONCLUSIONS

I therefore conclude that Project EASE is an effective program to reduced

drop-outs in SPNHS because more than half of the students enrolled in the

program since 1997 up to this present passed and they all continue and back in

regular classes. Education is life, not a preparation for life. It should be

concerned with actual problem, issues and concerns of the learner. EASE helps

students respond to the everyday challenges and demands of family and

community life. Education is self- realization of a person’s potentials; the mental,

social, physical and emotional. The school exists for the learners: it is the school

that should adjust itself to meet the learner’s need. The world is a classroom.

Learning can take place anywhere at home, in the workplace, in learning centers.

Learning is continuous progression. Previous knowledge and experiences are

utilized to form new knowledge.
