Tarlac Governor Susan Yap ponders on adapting the Japanese way of teaching children
Tarlac Governor Susan Yap recently came across a post that caught her attention and got her thinking: Should we implement this in the Philippines?
Apparently, Japanese students are not given any exams in school until they reach 4th grade. The post Governor Yap shared on Facebook explains why: “Because the goal for the first 2 years of school is not to judge the child’s knowledge or learning, but to establish good manners and develop character.” Simply put, “The Japanese scholars teach manners before knowledge.”
This had Governor Susan Yap thinking that maybe this could also work in the Philippines. If this is implemented, kids could learn character, discipline, good manners, much valuable and admirable qualities and more.
What’s your take on the matter?
