IMPACT OF EDUCATION DEPRIVATION ON THE TEENAGE

EMPLOYMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES.


Education is considered a powerful tool
for development and the strongest
instrument for reducing poverty as well as
improving health, gender equality, peace
and stability in a country. In other words,
education is considered a key to success.
Despite the annual increase in the budget
for basic education, fewer children are
enrolling in schools. The reason: poverty.
POVERTY
 Not having enough money to meet our
own basic needs.
 Due to health problems related to
malnutriation
 Financial deficit of developing
countries.
Education is for many an escape
route away from poverty. In the
Philippines, however, where a quarter of
the population lives below the poverty
line, that clearly isn’t the case. It is a route
that millions find blocked.
POVERTY TO BLAME
POVERTY TO BLAME
• FORDECADES, THE PHILIPPINES COULD BOAST OF BEING ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY
EDUCATED DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.
• ITS
ENROLLMENT RATES AT ALL LEVELS OF EDUCATION WERE HIGHER THAN THOSE OF
OTHER COUNTRIES WITH COMPARABLE, OR EVEN HIGHER, INCOME LEVELS.
• BUTNO LONGER. ANY EDGE THAT THE PHILIPPINES MIGHT HAVE HAD IN ITS HUMAN
CAPITAL HAS ERODED AS MORE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES – WITH SRI LANKA, THAILAND
AND SOUTH KOREA, USED TO BE THE TOP EDUCATION PERFORMERS IN ASIA.
• TODAY, THE COUNTRY IS AMONG THE LOWEST PERFORMERS IN ASIA AND THE REST OF THE
DEVELOPING WORLD.
POVERTY CRASHES EDUCATION
EMPLOYMENT AND POVERTY IN THE
PHILIPPINES
• THE STUDY SUGGESTED THAT THE PROBLEM OF POVERTY GOES
BEYOND THE LACK OF INCOME OR ASSETS IN URBAN POOR FAMILIES.
THE LACK OF JOB OPPORTUNITIES AND OTHER ECONOMIC PROBLEMS
ARE INTERTWINED WITH ISSUES SUCH AS THE LACK OF SKILL AND
THE INABILITY TO CONTROL FERTILITY.
DISPARITY IN EDUCATIONAL QUALITY
• KNOWING THE EXTENT AND NATURE OF EDUCATION INEQUALITY IN THE
PHILIPPINES AND HOW IT HAS FARED OVER TIME IS OF GREAT INTEREST
BECAUSE AN UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES
REPRESENTS LARGE WELFARE LOSSES FOR SOCIETY.
• IF ONLY CERTAIN GROUPS OF PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO EDUCATION, THOSE
WHO ARE UNABLE TO IMPROVE THEIR PRODUCTIVITY AND SKILLS WILL BE
UNFIT FOR BETTER-PAYING JOBS AND WILL BE MORE LIKELY TO BE
ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED. THUS, AREAS WHERE MOST PEOPLE HAVE
LOW EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT ARE LIKELY TO BE MORE ECONOMICALLY
DISTRESSED.
THE EDUCATION SYSTEM IS FAR FROM PERFECT
A MORE CRITICAL EYE NEEDS TO BE CAST ON THE FILIPINO EDUCATION SYSTEM.
AT ITS BEST, IT WORKS VERY WELL; AT ITS WORST, IT FAILS THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST.
• MORE RESOURCES ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED.
THEY NEED TO BE CHANNELLED INTO THE POOREST AREAS. LOW EDUCATION AND SKILL
LEVELS OF THE POOR ALREADY HINDER THE PHILIPPINES’ ECONOMIC GROWTH CAPACITY.
CORRUPTION MEANS THE STATUS QUO IS MAINTAINED.
AS THE POPULATION CONTINUES TO GROW, AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING ON
EDUCATION CONTINUALLY FALLS SHORT, THE RICH WILL GET RICHER AND THE POOR WILL
GET POORER. INEVITABLY, LITERACY RATES AND OTHER MEASURES OF EDUCATION
STANDARDS WILL FALL AS MORE PEOPLE ARE SUCKED INTO POVERTY.
AS THE POPULATION
CONTINUES TO GROW, AND
GOVERNMENT SPENDING ON EDUCATION
CONTINUALLY FALLS SHORT, THE RICH
WILL GET RICHER AND THE POOR WILL
GET POORER. INEVITABLY, LITERACY RATES
AND OTHER MEASURES OF EDUCATION
STANDARDS WILL FALL AS MORE PEOPLE
ARE SUCKED INTO POVERTY.
