DepEd-ARMM, BRAC Philippines to conduct National Research Forum
Cotabato City (August 28, 2015) – The Department of Education in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DepEd-ARMM) and BRAC Philippines will conduct a national research forum on Alternative Delivery Model (ADM) in September in Makati City.
The research forum will discuss the initial findings of three studies conducted by the University of the Philippines Los Banos Foundation, Inc., ACTRC-Melbourne University, and University of Southeastern Philippines on the ADM-BRAC learning centers in ARMM.
Moreover, the event will also showcase the key features of the ADM and BRAC learning centers and identify pathways for integrating the lessons and best practices of the ADM in the national education policies and programs.
DepEd-ARMM officials, Australian embassy representatives, members of the academe and various international nongovernmental organizations working for education in ARMM are expected to attend the event.
The ADM project is a component of the Basic Education Assistance for Muslim Mindanao program which is being supported by the Philippine and Australian governments. It is now on its fourth year of implementation.
The project established learning centers in poor, conflict-affected, and disadvantaged communities in ARMM to provide opportunities to out-of-school children to have access to basic education. It aims at supporting the ongoing efforts of the Philippine government to address education issues in the region in the long-term. (Bureau of Public Information)
