Praksis AVP

Magsimula na bumuo ng Praxis AVP script.  Ilimita ito sa apat na pahina (TNR, 12 points, 1.5 spacing).  Tandaang magkaiba ang paraan ng pagsulat ng pangkating ulat na ipinasa ninyo at ng AVP script para sa komperensiya.  Pareho itong kritikal sa pananaw pero kailangang mas payak at maikli ang pangungusap sa script dahil sa katangian ng ating mga manonood na maaring hindi lahat ay bihasa at maalam sa mga isyung panlipunan.  Bawat grupo ay dapat may sarili at natatanging paraan ng paglalahad sa kanilang AVP upang hindi maging pare-pareho ang istilo at hindi maging kabagot-bagot sa manonood.  Halimbawa, hindi lahat ng AVP ay dapat magsimula sa palasak na presentasyon ng heograpiya.  Maging maparaan kung paano sisimulan ang pagkukwento ng karanasan ninyo kasama ang batayang sektor sa komunidad.  At tandaan na dapat epektibo ninyong maipaabot bilang mga kritikal na iskolar at mananaliksik ang panawagan at pakikibaka ng batayang sektor para sa isang makatarungang lipunan sa paraang mapamukaw, mapanuri at makapagpanibagong-pananaw at hubog. #aja #kwentongmaykwenta #overallcoordinator:madamagsino #deputycoordinator1:narratorpat #deputycoordinator2:cherry

Sipi mula sa mga akda ni Dr Ed Villegas na tinipon ng mga mag-aaral (Ikalawang bahagi)


"The working class must develop an ideology of their own to counter the ideology of the owners of the means of production, the latter's ideology being disseminated in the mass media and educational institutions." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas


"A revolutionary working class constitutes the vanguard class in the fight of the oppressed against capitalism because in all struggles to transform society, a vanguard force is necessary." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Foreign firms have also adversely dominated our economy, robbing the nation of its material bases the control of which is the pre-requisite for political and cultural independence." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Late American capitalism with its individualistic and irrational style of production, its greed for profit, its lack of social responsibility, its degradation of the lower classes, its threat to world peace, its exploitation of weak nations can only deserve the death wish from those who seek the true justice and freedom for mankind." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

Indeed, everything is not equal in the world of the capitalists and the market is only "free" as the battlefield of monopoly capitalists against each other. - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Truly, capitalism develops within its own bower the contradictions which will overwhelm it." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"The development of money as a fetish has reached such a height in our age that it has become supreme to all virtues that human civilization has been capable of - culture, art and science." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"It is only the collective decision and action of the working class, the foremost victims of capitalist oppression, that could prove equal to the task of dismantling the moribund system of monopoly capitalism." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Capitalist speculative investments have gradually become alienated from the real world of productive activities and had brought humankind into a netherworld where greed for capital and the desire to be first are the norm." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Those who have been sacrificed by history shall be redeemed by history." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"The Philippine banking system is characterized by the concentration of the ownership of capital in a few banks, the control of the leading banks by the comprador bourgeoisie and the interlocking of these banks with affiliate family business." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Lack of knowledge of the causes of one's exploitation is a basic condition for the continuance of the exploitation." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

On the day of the victory of the working class in alliance with all the other "wretched of the earth" shall be built on the carcass of capitalism a new social order whose primary goal is not to profit from others but the emancipation of humanity from want and the civilization of science, art and culture for the welfare of all. - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Capitalism is basically selfish and in a system fueled by selfishness only a few, often the most ruthless and unscrupulous and not the best, prevail." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"It is indeed in finance capital where the capitalists, the mafia gangster and the tyrants of the world have become truly one." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas







Sipi mula sa mga akda ni Dr Ed Villegas na tinipon ng mga mag-aaral


"The quantifying mania has in a great measure exacerbated the compartmentalization of social knowledge, which of course has paralyzed practitioners in their own little expertise, afraid to make pronouncements on the specialization of others." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"National accounting is blind to who acquires the greater part of the gross domestic product whether, for instance, only the top 10% of the population gets the largest 90% share of the economic pie while the rest of the population only earns the remaining 10%."
- Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"The method of deriving GDP by neoclassical economists is not a measure of the economic welfare for the majority of the people, and in fact may reflect the magnitude of the exploitation of the resources of a country, which increases poverty in that land." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Unless responsible leaders and organizations of the world come together to intellectually combat the various theories of human progress promoted by the dominant capitalist class, more miseries and cultural bankruptcies will prevail upon the world." - Edberto Malvar Villegas

"If global economy remains in the hands of those who seek primacy in the marketplace, GNP accounting will only be a myth of development."  - Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Unless the private ownership of the means of production is changed in favor of the collective goods of the people, GDP growth as measure of the productive activities of societies will only reflect the economic prosperity of the few over the labor of the many and the exploitation committed against the true producers of the wealth of humankind." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"The finance market is one grand casino."  - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"The capitalist finance market, especially the stock exchanges, is like one grand casino where the unscrupulous and the manipulative thrive and most of the times win edging out the trusting and hopeful general public who merely desire to increase the values of their lifetime savings, their pensions and other liquid asses." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Since the main threat of the continued existence of American capitalism is the worldwide spread of communism, Filipino military officers have imbibed in themselves the anti-communist outlook of their American mentors." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

 "What is further unfortunate is that only one brand of Western social science is allowed to dominate by our educational authorities, and that is of the American type.  Thus, the people's choice regarding what could be the best society to build has become narrowed down to what their colonial-minded members allow to be laid on the table." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas



"It is the disunity of the working class that the capitalist class and its allies above all desire and encourage to prevent the proletariat to discover its awesome latent social power." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Dahil sa nagiging kaayusan sa lipunan natin na nagbubunga ng malalang diperensiya ng lungsod at kanayunan, ng industriya at agrikultura, patuloy na lumalakas ang mga taga-kanayunan patungong lungsod." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Ang demolisyon ay lantarang pagyurak sa dignidad ng mamamayan at pagkait sa kanilang karapatan sa paninirahan.  Bagamat ang ating bansa ay lumagda sa mga pandaigdigang kasunduan na nagdedeklarang di-makatao ang anumang uri ng demolisyon, patuloy pa rin itong nagaganap sa mga komunidad-maralita - isang realidad na lagi nang kakambal ng pagiging maralita." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Ang mataas na upa sa lupa, usura, pang-aalila, mababang pasahod, di-makataong kondisyon sa bukid, mataas na gastos sa produksyon, pandaraya sa kwenta ng gastos sa pagsasaka, kasama na rin ang kawalan ng sariling lupa bilang pangunahing problema at ang matinding humahagupit sa kabuhayan ng magsasaka ang nagtulak sa kanila na makipagsapalaran sa Maynila." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Ang makukuha nating aral sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas ay ito: ang lumahok sa politika ng mga naghaharing uri ay ideyalistang paraan.  Kailangang palalimin ang pag-unawa ng uring manggagawa sa alternatibong sistemang papalit sa kasalukuyang lipunang umiiral sa Pilipinas at huwag umasa sa mga reporma na magmumula sa uring mapagsamantala." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"An occupying army of foreigners will constantly remind the natives of their subjugation." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

"Ang mga kapitalista ay maaaring suportahan at palawakin pa ang mga akda sa sining at panitikan na walang katuturan sa problema ng isang lipunan. Sa naghaharing uri mainam na ang mga intelektwal at artista ay walang pakialam sa politika kung saan sila naghahari." - Dr. Edberto Malvar Villegas

Blog survey on political development (part 2)


"Ito ay ang pagkamulat ng madlang nakararami upang organisado silang magkaroon ng kapangyarihan sa kabuhayan at politika." - Prof Roland Simbulan, Development Studies and Public Management Professor


"Ito ay ang pag-unlad ng relasyon sa pagitan ng dalawang tao o maging uri." - Gian Siapo, mag-aaral ng Dalubbanwahan


"Political development is a result of economic development.  We can only have leaders that are not from the landed class if we resolve the agrarian question in the countryside.  There also lies the determination whether political monopolies will be dismantled in the provinces." - Congressman Teri Ridon, people's lawyer and a graduate of Development Studies

Blog survey on political development


"When I think of political development, I think of the maturation of political institutions as they become more complex and adapt to the needs of the body politic.  I think this particularly applies to electoral systems (such as the proportional representation system) and the checks and balances of various branches of the government." - Prof Kevin Punzalan, DLSU

"Essentially, it encompasses political maturity, honest and dependable elections (which we don't have), and a working constitution that guides us to exercise our freedom." - Teresita Ang See, peace activist

"Political development is the process of evolving institutions of governance in the public sphere." - Prof Erle Frayne Argonza, development sociologist

"Pag-unlad ng sistemang pampolitika tungo sa isang makabayan at makamasang kaayusan, sa pamamagitan ng pagpapataas ng pampolitikang kamalayan at pagpapakilos ng iba't ibang batayang sektor ng lipunan." - Miguel Deanon, mag-aaral ng Araling Pangkaunlaran

"Political development is a regime free of bureaucratic inefficiency, bureaucratic corruption and bureaucratic capitalism." - Carlo Tan, Development Studies student

"Political development is when we elect better leaders." - Prof Xiao Chua, DLSU

"Political development connotes advancement and maturity in the way people view politics, government and societal institutions." - Prof Julian Advincula, UP Manila

"Para sa akin, ang konsepto ng political development ay tumutukoy sa positibong pagbabago sa sistema ng pamamahala, at pagiging sensitibo at masuri ng gobyerno.  Nakapaloob dito ang tunay na pagkilala sa kaisipan ng bawat mamamayang nasasakupan at pagsasang-alang-alang ng kanilang kakayahan at karapatan sa mga kaalamang may kinalaman sa mga isyung panlipunan." - Donna Magsino, mag-aaral ng Araling Pangkaunlaran

"Sa antas ng indibidwal, ito ang pagkilala na ang personal ay politikal, at ang kasanayang magsuri ng personal na sitwasyon sa konteksto ng mga salik na politikal.  Kung sa antas panlipunan, ito ay ang pag-unlad ng mga institusyon at maging ang mga halagahin ng mga mamamayan para sa pagsuri at pagtugon sa mga kinakaharap ng isang lipunan." - JM Lanuza, mag-aaral sa masterado, UP Diliman

"Advancement of the interest of the people through national sovereignty, government integrity, and genuine development.  It is also the capacity of our state to mobilize national resources for the benefit  of the people guided by the concept of institutional accountability and transparency." - Prof Reginald Vallejos, UP Diliman DPA student

"Political development refers to the process of building the capacities of peoples and communities toward active and meaningful participation in the decision-making at all levels of government.  It involves the process of empowering peoples and communities to take charge and decide their destiny." - Dr Nymia Pimentel-Simbulan, incoming chair, DBS

My basic tips in choosing a thesis topic

Choose a research topic that is:
- development-oriented, purposive, and contributory to the empowerment of the marginalized and disenfranchised sectors
- issue-specific, area-specific, sector-specific, time-specific and, of course, if it is a policy research or evaluation research it should also be policy-specific
- responsive to the identified research gaps in the field (hindi dapat palasak kaya mahalaga ang RRL)
- of interest to you
- within the limit of your available resources
- a product of serious reading, observation, interviewing, reflection/introspection and decision-making

SALIMBAYAN 2014

Sa pangunguna ng Development Studies Program ay magkakaroon ng konsultasyon sa mga piling pambansang pangmasang organisasyon at mga institusyong pananaliksik upang mas palakasin at palalimin ang pampamayanang ugnayan at oryentasyon ng kurikulum, pananaliksik at adbokasiya ng pamantasan at programa.  Pinagtitibay ng gawaing ito na ang UP at Development Studies Program ay may malaking pananagutan na dapat gampanan sa sambayanang Pilipino.

Sa panimula ay mahahati sa apat na grupo ang konsultasyon: pesante/mangingisda/katutubo, manggagawa, maralitang tagalunsod at institusyong pananaliksik.  Bukod sa Development Studies Program ay magiging katuwang din sa gawaing ito ang Development Studies Society.

Scrutinizing MDG

After writing a commissioned article about the UN Millennium Development Goals,  I realized that it requires serious mainstreaming in various Development Studies courses, notably DS 121 and DS 112, and more serious analysis to expose its drawbacks and controversies.  #criticalpoliticaleconomymode: ON AND FULLY CHARGED #grrrrrrrrrr

Uno para kay Therese

Paumanhin kung mala-guro pa rin ang pahayag na ito.
Pero tiyak ako, sa ipinamalas na husay at dedikasyon ni Therese sa nakaraang tatlong klase namin, ay magiging 1.0 muli siya sa DS 121 ngayong papasok na semestre.
Subalit, maliban sa grado, kaalaman at kasanayan,  kapwa rin o kung hindi man ay pinakamahalaga ang karakter - tatlong bagay na taglay ni Therese na sana ay magagamit niya sa kanyang pagiging alagad ng kaunlaran sa hinaharap.
Maaga man siyang lumisan, tiyak na hindi masasayang ang mga ito dahil magsisilbi siyang inspirasyon para pamarisan ng marami.
At habang kasama namin sa programa ang kanyang mga kamag-aral at kakurso, magiging parang kasa-kasama rin namin siya sa klase at sa iba pang makabuluhang larangan ng buhay.
Salamat at pagpupugay kay Therese...

Para kay Therese

June 26, 2012 nang una akong nabigla sa aking pagpasok sa GAB 301B dahil bumungad sa akin ang isang napakagandang banner para sa isang NSTP ACLE ukol sa politics of  education.  Pinakamagandang disenyo ng banner ito sa kasaysayan ng aking pagtuturo, at marahil maging sa buong panahon nang ilalagi ko sa propesyong ito.

Kahanga-hanga rin ang flip chart ng inyong grupo ukol sa pedagogy of the oppressed.  Excellent in terms of both form and substance.  Napakalaki rin ng ambag mo sa pagbuhay ng ating mga booth tuwing DSS at Development Studies Weeks. #minutetowinitdevstudeditionetc

Batay pa lamang sa mga ito ay alam ko nang magiging matagumpay ka sa pag-aaral at maging sa anumang propesyong tatahakin mo.  A person of brain, beauty and character, I must say.

Hindi ko rin malilimutan ang ipinakita mong malasakit sa mga kapwa mag-aaral sa pamamagitan ng pagpapaalala na huwag magpapabaya sa klase.  

At sa mga biruan sa loob at labas ng klase, laging nakahanda ang iyong mga ngiti ng pakikisama at pakikiisa.

Salamat sa  pagbabahagi ng iyong kabaitan, talino at pagkamalikhain sa amin at sa programa.

Pinakamataas na pagpupugay sa iyo, kasama, kaibigan, anak, at kapwa mag-aaral ng lipunan at kaunlaran.

Mahal na mahal ka namin ng iyong mga naging kamag-aral at guro.

Hanggang sa muli, Therese...
