How To Educate the Boholanos (Part 1)

Proem

Since the 1990s it has been noticed that the young generation has a behavior that do not match their desires. They still dream of great achievements but they are not doing their best to strive for their dreams and ambitions. They seem to expect that their dreams will be handed to them in a silver platter.

When the book “The Bill Curve” was published in the United States, the educators realized that something was wrong and everybody tried to investigate the causes.

Present Predicament


Nowadays, the young generation entering college in Bohol seems to become worst. They do not have a good command of any language. Our research has shown that the average rating in English proficiency is only 44.25% where the expected average should be 75%. In fact of the 1,500 students tested, nobody reached the 75% level.

They could not read, write, and speak proper Tagalog. Their un-standardized “Taglish” or “Bisaylish” could not cope with an intellectualized discussion. The young Boholanos do not know how to read, write, or speak in Sugboanon Bisaya. In fact their vocabulary level is only about 700 words, which is the level of a 7-year old.

The graduates of the elitist High Schools are the worst users of the Sugboanon Bisaya. This means that, in term of “emotional intelligence,” these students will be the worst. Emotional intelligence is closely connected to the mother language because his emotions were developed using the mother language.

The new generation of Boholanos has short attention span. They no longer have the capability to focus and give more time to understand “hard to analyze” intellectual tasks. They have a tendency to opt - out of the situation.

The new generation of Boholanos has a little capacity to relate to the topic of discussion in the classroom. This means that the student comes to class unprepared or that the stock knowledge they have is unrelated or worst, that they do not have any stock knowledge at all.

In the 1990s, students still know how rice are grown, how copra are prepared, or how fish were caught. Nowadays, in a class of 45 students, I would be lucky to find 5 students who know how rice are grown. Bear in mind that these students came from the different towns in Bohol. You could just wonder what the students were learning all their young lives. They do not have the in vivo (through life) or in situ (on-site) knowledge of what is happening around them.

You can just imagine the predicament of the teacher in educating the students for a profession in life.

The Person Is Still the Same

However, you will be surprised to know that the “person” of the student is still the same. Their brainpower is still the same. Their physical and emotional development is still the same. What seems to be the matter is that our culture and civilization are at cross-purposes to the behavior of the young generation.

It is in the matter of guiding and teaching the next generation that the older generation has failed. In fact, we can say that the present older generation has failed to guide the new generation. That is the reason why the new generation is in a flux. They have dreams but they have no guideposts to focus their attention to. The situation is the result of the hesitation of the present older generation to teach their culture to the next generation.

Very good that a top gun from academe opens this topic. check the psychology and logic of teachers of Logic, maybe sa UB.

What do you expect from youth who go to college to be further educated and learn when their teacher in Logic tells them, "Mga Bulok mo, class!" and implies "wa mo'y K mo-finish og nursing course." basin mo-transfer mo sa (another school which he perceives to be of lower standard), at iba pa. hala di ko pataka og sulti kay ihagbong nya ko. vendictive raba ni siya nga maestro.

Stand up for yourself then. I've stood up against my professors in microbiology and neurophysiology classes where I work in the lab as a teacher's assistant. Whenever there is something wrong, i will plainly say it, state the reason and await his response. I actually have proven my professors wrong in several occasions--even went so far as to finding out an error in research methodology--saving them thousands of dollars in grant money. Their response? They thanked me isntead of chastizing. So what if he or she will retort back, have some self decency and make your thoughts known. Theres no point in being afraid of your professor--if one is always afraid, one is prevented to progress in maturity and experience.

As for the article, its natural. The students have to learn three languages (english, tagalog and visaya). By default, there fare more experienced in the vernacular than most American students (who only speak english, with some taking courses in a 2nd language). The Filipino student knows 2 or 3.

I give them respect for that.

Yala-Arabic for hello.

Hola-Espanole for hello.

Como vous parli vous-Hello how are, French.

Kamusta ka-Tagolog for hello, how are you.

What's happening-English, for whats going on.

Con suo vivo displacere-Italian, With great sorrow on his part.

I have a Spanish speaking sister in law.

I worked with Egyptians they spoke Arabic.

I have lived in Manila and learned some language there.

I live near the french Canadian border

I speak Italian because of my friends living on the East Coast back home.

Not bad to be able to speak a good amount of it or understand it for an American!

6 tongues, and with one of them i spent time volunteering in a Dr's clinic with the Spanish speaking back home.
Any language is good to know so if needed in an emergency at any given time.
