The problem and it’s Background
Education problems in the Philippines are rampant and some are serious. Many believe that the quality of education has slowly been degrading. Educators attest that these problems may be due to a lot of factors. The government, on the other hand, is now employing different measures to improve the quality of education. In all the State of the Nation Address (SONA) speeches of President Benigno Aquino III, he would always stress that education problems are now lessened with the provision of additional rooms and chairs. But still, there are schools that are having problems with the number of rooms. This problem leads them to have reposition of classes. This means that classes are held into two sessions; one in the morning and another in the afternoon. People have different problems and issues regarding two sessions of classes. With DepEd issuing Memorandum Order No. 26 which states that classes will start at 6 or 7 in the morning on the regular class, schools are still left with no choice but to have two sessions; the other classes to start in the afternoon. This is due to the lack of rooms and teachers that many schools are suffering from. The researchers, in their effort of finding out the effects of the reposition of classes in the academic performance of pupils, will be conducting this research. They will be studying the Grade 2 pupils of Francisco P. Felix Elementary School Unit 1 who are experiencing this situation.
Significance of the Study:
This study aims to know the effects of having two sessions of classes in the academic performance of grade 2 pupils of Francisco P. Felix Elementary School Unit 1 during the school year 2012- 2013. This study will be a great help to the following:
Students. This will make them be aware of their learning styles and their moods that may be affecting their academic performance and on how they will participate well in class. This will also guide them on ways to lessen the negative effects of reposition of classes in their academic performance.
Parents. This research will make them understand the moods of their children as affected by the reposition of classes. This will also be of help in teaching their children better study habits and ways on how to maintain good academic performance.
Teachers. This research may inform them that every learner has different moods. Thus, they should strategize and use differentiated techniques on helping learners to cope up with the lessons. This will also aid them to maximize their knowledge in improving the child’s intellect, and to value the child’s emotional intelligence, as well.
School Administrators. This will help the school administrators to gauge the extent of the effects of the reposition of classes to the academic performance of the pupils. This will also make them realize that even with the existence of educational problems, the quality of education and the welfare of the child should not be at stake. This will also help them in devising for ways on how to solve school-related problems.
Government. This will aid the government in realizing the need to solve educational problems and to prioritize education above all else. This will also be utilized in finding out more ways on upgrading the quality of education.
Future researchers. This will serve as a reference for their future research.
