Abstract: This paper is a critique to the production of social scientific knowledge that ensued after Supertyphoon Haiyan hit the Central Philippines in 2013. The sheer number and speed of publishing journal articles researchers who are mostly based in Manila and in other parts of the world poses some serious ethical problems in the way stories of losses and recovery represented in social scientific inquiries. Drawing from my standpoint as an insider-researcher, I analyzed selected research projects and gathered narratives from local researchers and community members who became collaborators and participants of such projects, respectively. The institutional and political contexts of how these research projects are funded were also analyzed. Preliminary work points to the need for establishing methodological rules and interpretive guidelines that incorporate the politics of representation and ethics of evidence rooted in the local, situated discursive narratives about the typhoon and its aftermath.

"Philippines: Increasing Access to Education for Conflict-Affected Out of School Youth through the Philippine Department of Education’s Alternative Learning System (ALS)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Comparative and International Education Society Annual Conference, Sheraton Centre Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p718236_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The Philippines Department of Education includes a Bureau of Alternative Learning Systems (BALS) that promotes a non-formal education approach, based on non-formal learning modules that have been developed for classes at a variety of levels and packaged into various programs, some of which include national examinations. The Philippine Alternative Learning System aims to upgrade basic education skills of people outside of the formal school system. Program options range from informal education (INFED) and Basic Education (BE) Programs to Accreditation and Equivalency (A&E) programs at the Elementary and Secondary levels with certifications including level placement, equivalency, and accreditation at the primary or secondary levels—creating pathways back into formal learning or supporting entry into the workforce.

The 5-year year USAID Mindanao Youth for Development (MYDev) project that began in July 2013 will discuss how it builds on earlier USAID work to restore and strengthen education venues, services, and system capacity for out-of-school youth within conflict-affected communities in Mindanao, in the southern Philippines. It will present the overall Alternative Learning System since its inception as part of the Philippine Department of Education and how it approaches sustainability issues. It will discuss strengths, innovation, and challenges, including the use of various national and class-level assessments. It will also share the project’s community-based approach that builds upon the national level guidelines, vision and goals while working with local government institutions at regional, division, and district levels, local Filipino service providers, community groups and youth to implement and strengthen existing programs and systems delivery.

"The Labor Exporting State: Migration and Higher Education in the Philippines" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hotel, Chicago, IL, Apr 12, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p197380_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper focuses on the institutionalization of labor export and the state’s response to the market failure in higher education. It argues that the Philippine state built the labor export industry as it sought to appease the interests of the business elites who owned many of the private higher educational institutions while creating jobs to ease the political pressures coming from the educated unemployed. The Marcos regime passed the 1974 Labor Export Policy and established the Overseas Employment Development Board in order to alleviate these pressures. The Philippine state not only became active in creating the labor export industry, but it also expanded its capacity in education by developing more public universities and vocational schools that would produce graduates who would be absorbed into the domestic labor market. As labor export grew, business interests in private overseas recruitment agencies, the remittances industry, households, and the government became dependent on the foreign exchange from migrant remittances for their financial survival.
