EDUCATOR CHAMPIONS IP CULTURE | We celebrated the Philippine Independence Day last 12 June 2022. This month, Lingkod Bayan Diaries features 2020 Civil Service Commission (CSC) Pagasa awardee JESUS CATIGAN INSILADA, who displays his love of country with his life and work. In this video, he shares his advocacy on culture-based education.
As Principal II at Malitbog National High School in Iloilo, Insilada established a culture-based and inclusive education system in his school, integrating the beliefs, practices, and spirituality of indigenous people (IP) in the school’s lessons and teachings. He initiated various activities to mainstream awareness of Panay Bukidnon IP culture in the school through films, painting, and literature. His Pagdungaw Program addressed the problem of high dropout rate among IP students by involving parents and guardians in monitoring student attendance and performance.
