RPMS-PPST for a new be­gin­ning

TEACH­ERS hold the torch of the Philip­pine ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem that seeks to pro­mote qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion for life-long learn­ers. As a vi­tal role played in the learn­ing process, teach­ers should be well equip in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of K-12 cur­ricu­lum. Hence, they must re­flect on what have been done for the pur­suit of de­vel­op­ing bet­ter strate­gies and skills. This self-assess­ment is es­sen­tial for an ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient in­struc­tion.

For a fresh start this 2018, the De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion (DepEd) em­braces new mode of teach­ers’ eval­u­a­tion through DepEd or­der no. 42, s. 2017 en­ti­tled Na­tional Adop­tion and Im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Philip­pine Pro­fes­sional Stan­dards for Teach­ers (PPST). Se­ries of roll-outs in schools ev­ery­where in the coun­try had been called for the RPMS-PPST. This new tool seeks to re­flect bet­ter re­sults of im­prove­ment among teach­ers.

The PPST is com­posed of seven do­mains with 37 strands. Th­ese do­mains are as fol­lows: Con­tent Knowl­edge and Ped­a­gogy, Learn­ing En­vi­ron­ment, Di­ver­sity of Learn­ers, Cur­ricu­lum and Plan­ning, Assess­ment and Re­port­ing, Com­mu­nity Link­ages, and Per­sonal Growth and Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment. The proper eval­u­a­tion tool will also de­pend on the teach­ers’ pro­fes­sional ca­reer stages. Teach­ers shall be de­fined as Be­gin­ning , Pro­fi­cient, Highly Pro­fi­cient, and Dis­tin­guished Teach­ers.

The PPST shall be a ba­sis for de­vel­op­ing in­no­va­tions and pro­grams to prop­erly ad­dress the teach­ing needs in im­ple­ment­ing the K-12 pro­gram. The mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion shall be pre­sented with nec­es­sary doc­u­ments as sup­port and ev­i­dence to as­sess the yearly per­for­mance of teach­ers and weigh in the ap­pli­ca­tion of the cur­ricu­lum.

As the bat­tle for a well-rounded Philip­pine ed­u­ca­tional sys­tem makes head­way, the same is true for all teach­ers. Af­ter all, progress must be bal­ance to en­sure the right­ful track of learn­ing for the coun­try’s learn­ers.

The PPST will be the great mir­ror of our teach­ers, as well as of the DepEd, to sus­tain and up­grade the needs of its sys­tem. ( Paid ar­ti­cle)
