MAKATI CITY – With the recent educational shift to K-12, The Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) featured Edukasyon.ph to help the 27,500 students and their OFW families in searching for the right Senior High Schools for their children. Edukasyon.ph is a free website platform that gives choice, convenience, and advice on education to career options around the Philippines.
“We understand how difficult it is for OFW parents to involve themselves in the education planning of their children especially now that there’s Senior High School (SHS). Through Edukasyon.ph #SeniorHighDreams component, they will no longer feel disconnected from their child’s education,” Edukasyon.ph Executive Officer Linartes Viloria said.
This February, the CFO was able to circulate a memorandum addressed to the 40 PSO school principals based in 10 countries (Bahrain, China, East Timor, Greece, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Libya, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates) with enclosed tutorial kits for teachers on understanding Edukasyon.ph's services and brochure for students on how using the website can aid them in their selection of senior high tracks, career guidance and advising.
Through the Edukasyon.ph website, parents and students can easily search for senior high ready schools and senior high offered tracks that are near their home location. They can also see which tuition fees are within their budget and what scholarship opportunities the educational institutions are offering.
“#SeniorHighDreams” is one of the newest features of Edukasyon.ph which aims to educate the parents and students about SHS, its tracks and specializations, and the Voucher Program. Not only that, Edukasyon.ph has comprehensive information on careers and scholarships.
“Parents will have a bird’s-eye view on Senior High through Edukasyon.ph. Our job at Edukasyon.ph is to make sure we bridge the educational information gap and enable more parents and families to make informed decisions on the educational investments for their children,” Edukasyon.ph Founder Henry Motte-Muñoz added.
