PN 2016-19: What Do Statistics Say about Basic Education in the Philippines?

This study assessed the performance and internal efficiency of the basic education sector through the Department of Education's Enhanced Basic Education Information System and the Philippine Statistics Authority's Annual Poverty Indicators Survey. Both the administrative system and the survey revealed improvements in school participation as a result of the investments made by the Aquino administration to the education sector, as well as the implementation of universal kindergarten and the conditional cash transfer (CCT) programs. However, it is apparent that some children are still being left behind in the provision of opportunities to attain their rights to basic education. In light of these findings, this Policy Note urges the current administration to continue the support for basic education. A reexamination of the CCT and school feeding programs, among others, is also being recommended.
