Ian Solito started this petition to DEPED and

          This program was implemented to invite our Government to continue the infrastructure that they planned to build but did not finished it , many students , mostly on public schools are expecting for the help of the Government on their program to build schools, Many of the Government officials smuggled the fund for the planned schools infrastructures because of that many government planned schools infrastructures did not finished and many students are still hoping to learn at those schools. For example in LAGUNA, Philippines – Local education officials in Sta Cruz, Laguna are gearing up for the full implementation of the K to 12 program. One existing public high school and two standalone senior high schools will cater to students who want to study the sports track, the general academic strand, the technical-vocational-livelihood track, or the science, technology, engineering and mathematics strand.Those who want to study other tracks and strands may opt to enroll in private senior high schools, or local universities and colleges.But teachers are getting reports of students already enrolled in private senior high schools who want to go back to public schools after realizing the cost of private education.Some classrooms for public senior high school are still undergoing construction ahead of the first day of classes. 

          

             It is a fact that having schools in good conditions is decisive for students to achieve the expected academic results.

For those who love to read and study, any place can be good to read and learn. They might argue that the space you are in does not matter, that knowledge is immaterial, that the physical context is secondary, and that what is important is to concentrate in what you are reading.  

But if we transfer this reasoning to the reality of educational systems, the empiric evidence is flagrant: having rooms and learning spaces in good conditions is decisive for students to achieve the expected academic results. In other words, the conditions of the schools directly impacts the performance of the students.  

The fact is that a good school infrastructure, with renewed spaces, makes it possible for children and youths that live in remote areas to study and, in addition, tends to improve the attendance and interest of students and teachers in learning. For this same reason, investments in school infrastructure have an essential role in solving access problems of students to the school system and to improve their performance. 

According to the experts, it must at least comply with the following parameters:

  • Comfort for students, teachers, and administrators: spaces for teachers and students, with an adequate temperature, ventilation, and lighting, with water, electricity, and Internet services, as well as sanitary services and the respective drainage of sewage waters.
  • Spaces for the development of rehearsals and practices such as libraries, and natural sciences, information technology, physics and chemistry labs. 
  • Spaces for the development of talents and entertainment, sports, and culture. 

 Please help me to sign or promote this petition so that our government will do something about this problem.
