GMA to DepEd: Replicate ‘kariton’ classroom

MANILA, Philippines – President Arroyo directed yesterday presidential adviser on education Mona Valisno to replicate the kariton classroom system in areas not reached by the Department of Education.

Following the worldwide recognition that CNN Hero of the Year Efren Peñaflorida’s kariton (pushcart) classroom has generated, the government is now adopting the strategy to reach out to school children, especially in remote areas in the country.

Yesterday, Peñaflorida was conferred the prestigious Order of Lakandula with the rank of komandante at Malacañang for the honor he and his Dynamic Teen Co. (DTC) brought to the country on a worldwide stage. His parents, Lucila and Efren Sr., accompanied him to Malacañang.

The President told Valisno to work with non-government organizations such as the DTC and support them in education programs for children.

She said the focus should be on children from poor families who most likely would have lesser access to education.

“If Kenya was able to have success replicating the program, then there should be no reason for the Philippines not to do this too,” she said.   – Marvin Sy

    hat’s off ako kay me penaflorida. but do we really have to replicate kariton classroom? me florida came up with the project with the purpose of educating children from areas na hindi walang mga schools. if we would have to replicate kariton calsroom, isn’t it just amnifestation how inutile the government is? why not come up with bigger budget for education, give better benefits to our teachers and most of all, provide employment to our dear teachers. an dami po nating teachers na walang trabaho dahil walang maayos na programa ang gobyerno para sa edukasyon.

    Ako po ay napahanga sa Project ni Kuya Efren..napakaganda at very effective din ang naging outcome ng kariton classroom…Agree po ako sa sinabi mo Ms. Bing na dapat talaga ay “THINK BIG” ang dapat gawin ng ating GOBYERNO para malutas na ang problema sa EDUKASYON & TRABAHO..Kung magkataong mabasa po eto ng ating mga LEADERS..eto po ang aking isang suggestion na sana maging programa na lang ng ating PANGULO na yung mga unemployed teachers ay mabigyan po ng special na trabaho related sa ginawa ni Efren Penaflorida. Napakaganda rin pong opportunity sa ating mga bagong Guro ang magkaroon ng exposure at ma practice nya ang kanyang pinag-aralan at maging productive na rin sya..ang tanong saan nga kaya kukuhanin ang budget?
    Sana naman po ay lakihan na or priority naman ninyo ang BUDGET ng DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION!!!marami pong matatalinong mga kabataan ang nasa kanayunan at walang pagkakataong mag-aral dahil sa walang kakayahan mapag-aral ng mga magulang sa problemang pinansyal.

    Sa Makati City at sa pamumuno ng Alkalde “MAYOR BINAY”. Bagama’t hindi naman natin pede kumpara ang ibang lugar sa Makati..pero ang napakaganda ng kanilang programa sa edukasyon..ang mga mag-aaral doon ay provided ng libreng mga kagamitan sa pag-aaral..at ang role ng mga magulang ay encourage na lang mga anak para pumunta sa school.

    Pangalawa, magkaroon ng magandang programa para sa pagpapaunlad sa ating mga guro(skills training) at higit sa lahat taasan na naman ang sahod para mas lalong po silang ma-inspire.
