PN 2008-03: Ensuring a More Evidence-based Policy for Basic Education

Can the Philippines achieve its goal on two key international commitments--the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on Education and the Education for All (EFA) Initiative--for the achievement of education for everyone? A closer look at the figures would show that the country may be at risk of not achieving its goal of attaining universal primary education by 2015. Given this scenario, the authors suggest that the government should intensify its efforts in improving basic education by having evidence-based policies and actions. In particular, they note that the Department of Education (DepEd) should be required to have a sound monitoring and evaluation system to regularly assess the conditions of basic education.
