Mula sa masa, tungo sa masa

"Nakikita ko na ang kahalagahan
ng pagiging makabayan.
Nakikita ko na kung bakit ang mga
Iskolar ng Bayan ay laging lumalaban.
Gusto kong maging parte rin ako ng pagbabago
tungo sa ikabubuti ng bansa.
Ang mga mamamayan ang nagpapaaral sa akin ngayon
kaya balang araw, sila naman ang paglilingkuran ko."

What is transformative education?

"Transformative education is necessarily subversive
to the prevailing order of oppression.
It questions everything and trains us how to
think critically, analytically, and independently.
It should also strengthen our social responsibility
towards our community and social milieu."

Transformative education

"Transformative education to me
refers to changing lives and making difference,
not just giving students the opportunity to earn income.
Graduates become ready for life and become contributing members
to society by first enabling positive change in outlook, attitude, etc.
It is also transforming for the teachers,
both lives are touched by the interaction."

What is transformative education?

"It is something that develops our critical thinking
to help transform the world outside.
From the Greek word skhole, meaning free time,
our scholarship rests on the temporary time --
the leisure, the freedom from economic necessity --
afforded to us by our laboring families and countrymen.
This privilege should be met by efforts to relate
academic studies to crucial subjects that matter to the
people and the nation, and the whole world generally:
poverty and social inequality in general; land reform,
industrialization, freedom from foreign domination,
government reform against corruption and graft, etc.
Transformative education seeks to fundamentally change the
meaning of education (formal, academic education specifically)
from one that merely sees the world outside as an object of study
into an education that is mired in the problems of the world.
Our study of the world outside the classroom is not neutral,
not value-free but laden with interests that we need to question
whether what we are doing are really for the people.
Transformative education struggles to transform
the world in the process of transforming itself."


-Prof. JPaul Manzanilla
Department of Arts and Communication
Former UP Student Regent

What is transformative education?

  • "Education should transform heart and conscience
    to enable student to tackle society's problems."
    -Prof. Mariam Tuvera, Economics professor

  • "Transformative education involves influencing the
    students to be agents of social change by giving them
    alternative courses of actions instead of plain criticism.
    -Ms. Malou Cura, SSC Social Studies teacher

  • "Transformative education means materials and matters
    taught are not just hypothetical but are able to transform
    the individuals and that change becomes effective."
    - UP Regent Nelia Gonzalez

  • "Transformative education is an education that liberates
    learners from various forms of slavery such as poverty,
    helplessness, apathy, etc. It's an education that empowers."
    -Dr. Reynaldo Imperial, CAS Dean

  • "Critical reflection usually involves powerful emotions
    or beliefs evident in action; Transformative education
    involves dynamic contemplation on oneself that must
    effect positively in actual life situation."
    -Ms. Jercylene Velayo, English professor

  • "Transformative education is when you develop the
    motivation to apply what you learn intellectually in
    school for the good of the society. Education must not
    be a selfish endeavor just for the advancement of one's
    career but more importantly for the service of others."
    -Dr. Edberto Villegas, Political economy professor

  • "Transformative education pertains to the effective and
    efficient use of education as a means to holistically develop
    individuals and consequently the society in general."
    -Ms. Ma. Lina Eguico, DevStud practicumer '09

  • "Transformative education opens the eyes and enlightens
    the mind of the student to his/her role of contributing
    to the betterment of society. Together with this
    awareness, the development of their desire to promote
    and uphold the ideals of nationalism and independence."

    -Ms. Anna Manarang, DevStud major

  • "Transformative education involves awareness geared
    towards genuine and sustainable development."
    -Mr. Angelo Murillo, Manila Collegian

  • "Transformative education develops
    critical thinking among the students."
    -Dr. Tess de Guzman, DLSU Anthropology professor

  • "Transformative education is learning through serving."
    -Atty. Ismael Khan, Supreme Court

  • "Transformative education effects changes in
    life philosophies ergo decision-making and behaviors
    that validate these changes."
    -Dr. Lilet Galban, Community Dentistry professor

  • Given the present bourgeois miseducation that
    leads to false consciousness, transformative
    education should only mean a mass-oriented,
    nationalist and scientific education.
    It should transcend personal transformation
    and reach ideological and political level.
    It should also accentuate the importance of societal
    transformation through collective action."
    -UP Manila NNARA Youth Chair Enrique Tejada

What do you think is the main feature of a typical Filipino family?

  • Filial piety & cohesiveness - Sharon Caringal, history professor

  • Strong sense of tradition and values i.e. superstitious belief
    and respect for the elderly
    - Bea Rigodon, researcher

  • Mama is the chairperson, treasurer.
    Papa is the director, provider, and deputy of Mama.
    Lolo and lola, extended family are very
    important in the social wellness of the family
    .
    A typical Filipino family is a bit disciplinarian in
    rearing kids. Food must be in the table at all times.
    Pinoys love to eat, pray together, go to church together,
    visit to relatives every now and then, photo together,
    also photo conscious
    - Sociologist Erle Argonza

  • Closely knit - Malou Cura, Social Studies teacher
