maybe part of it will make into city clinics, but i know where it will go out here in the province.
the sex education wont make it to the classrooms, because quite frankly the teachers arent qualified to teach it when they are still teaching superstitious beliefs as facts.
any free contraceptives will probably be sold.
lol, it's not even working in the USA. Just watch Judge Judy when those young single mothers asking for child support from irresponsible fathers have more than 3 children.

AMC don't be too hard on the Filipinos. The teachers in PH are as good as any teacher in the world. There are hundreds of Filipino teachers hired from the Philippines to teach in the USA.

Sorry to disagree with you on this but - the education system here is krap and thats being generous -if a person goes through the education system here and becomes a teacher they MAY be able to teach up to elementary level only .

Agree with you Kenny. Earlier this year I met a school mate of my wife and her English was pretty bad. During the conversation she said she was a teacher so innocently I asked what subjects she taught. I really had to bite my tongue to stop laughing when she said she taught English. Those kids have no chance.

Some teachers from the Philippines are hired to teach in public High School here in SF. The school annual test results of students in the past two years when these teachers came in gave a positive results to the education teaching of that school

" At Jefferson Union High School District, teachers from the Philippines add a much-needed diversity to the teaching staff, since 28 members of the student body are Filipino, said Superintendent Mike Crilly."

“For us it was a blessing in disguise to be able to hire these teachers,” Crilly said.“We need to find some teachers that can model to the student body we have.”

"Walsh, NCTQ president and a member of the Maryland State Board of Education, says it has become more common to hire overseas. "All poor districts have a harder time recruiting," she says. "Anytime you're teaching poor kids in the inner city, it's very hard to get teachers to stay."

Walsh says foreign teachers can enrich students' education by exposing them to other cultures. Eubanks agrees but says the USA must address the underlying shortage by training more teachers and improving schools.

Foreign teachers must pass state tests and meet federal requirements. Around the country:

• Prince George's County public schools in Maryland, with a teaching staff of 10,000, have 556 Filipino teachers and uncounted others from other countries.

• Los Angeles has 326 foreign teachers out of 33,529.

• Wichita public schools have 43 foreign teachers, all Filipino, out of 4,000."

Filipino wins UK contest with fish mucus, fungus

MANILA, Philippines?While London was abuzz with the premiere of "Sex and the City" last month, a Filipino wowed Brits with a speech on fish mucus and foot fungus.

Gian Karlo Dapul, 16, won this year's International Public Speaking Competition conducted on May 9 by the English-Speaking Union (ESU) for his speech titled "Fish Mucus and Foot Fungus."

The incoming senior at the Philippine Science High School in Quezon City was one of the youngest contestants, yet he bested 57 speakers from more than 30 other countries, including the United States, England and Australia.

Dapul is the second Filipino to top the competition after then University of the Philippines student Patricia Evangelista won in 2004, proving anew that foreigners can speak English well. Evangelista now writes a column for the Inquirer newspaper, parent company of INQUIRER.net .

The competition is one of the ESU's most popular international programs. The ESU is an international charity founded in 1918 with the aim of fostering international understanding through the English language."

besides the fact that were talking about San Fran., a wealthy hub of eccentrics bordering on insanity, there is no doubt that these flips demanded a tagalog speaking teacher and got it.

So what's your point?? You are talking different thing. Read the issue about teachers in PH are incompetent. My posting all those info about high school students getting awards in math, science, english in international competitions would verify that there are competent teachers and not all are incompetent.

I agree that the SOP when applying for a job in the nursing, medical etc profession, one needs to complete the required educational criteria of the US and needs to pass board exams required.
