DRN 2019 Vol. 37 No. 2: Improve performance of boys in PH educ - PIDS study

This issue of the Development Research News (DRN) focuses on issues impeding the achievement of gender equality in the country, particularly in education. Its banner article highlights the need to address gender disparity in basic education with Filipino boys performing poorly in school compared to their girl counterparts. The disadvantage of boys in education is further discussed in the infographic looking at the prevalence of out-of-school children in the Philippines. Another article talks about the country's low innovation capacity due to the low number of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics graduates. This quarter's DRN also features stories looking at the gender wage gap, particularly in agriculture, as well as the valuable contribution of women in the home and to their sons' schooling outcomes. Completing this issue is an article that looks at the country's possible gains from the trade tensions between the United States and China and a story on the Philippine experience in implementing the social contract theory.
