MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education needs to initiate what a key official of the House of Representatives described as a “curriculum overhaul” after the World Bank (WB) reported that 80 percent of Filipino children suffer from literacy problems.
Rep. Joey Salceda, chairman of the House committee on ways and means, vowed to revive calls “for an overhaul of the country’s curriculum and a focus on functional skills, critical thinking, and good citizenship.”
