    QUOTE; "In Dumaguete I tought several EFR and MFA classes in FU and SU".
    Wow, really, and also UP in Manila?

    How did they accept you for a teaching job when you can't even spell the word "taught" correctly. I know we all make mistakes in spelling, but bragging about teaching in SU and FU, etc , that's something to be concerned of. We knew you are a dive instructor, no question on that. By the way, what do EFR and MFA stand for? I think some would like to know what's that, if you don't mind. Thank you. :smile::D

    Emergency First Response and Medic First Aid. We were teching (better Swany :p ) classes for students (for free) as well as classes for parents and teachers. Interesting footnote, while the Teacher/parents (small fee)- classes in Luzon were most of the time fully booked, we had 5 people signing up for 3 courses in Dumaguete.
    Off-Topic question. Why is it not mandatory for nurses in the PI to have at least a basic MFA-education, their Job is to deal with sick or old people ? (No answer required, just something to think about)

    Swany, I guess there are many things members here don't know about me. Here on DI I show only my good side :wink:

    cheers and peace

    Rhoody

    It's nice to see alot of folks sharing opinions and standing by their views. I'm guessing each of us come from a different background and educational experience and with that, we look at schools in such places as Dumaguete. I sometimes wonder why my country, the U.S., spent so many years in the PI, investing billions of dollars, and yet the education system as well as the rest of life in general is still a 3rd world country? I guess politics on both sides decided how best to keep the PI a 3rd world country. It is not really an insult that Rhoody is making, it is just a simple fact that the education system could be better. That doesn't mean the people graduating from the schools are stupid by any stetch of the imagination, it just means that the community has to strive to make education a bit more of a priority and to pressure teachers to better standards of teaching. Even here in the U.S., the education system isn't as good as Canada's system, and hits far below the mark compared to Japan or some European countries. No matter where you are, education systems can always be improved on. Just my two cents worth.

    The only reason that USA poured billions into Phils is to exploit, but more notably to keep Marcos in power for so long, while he pilfered the country left right and center thats why nothing changed, Marcos, and USA flooding Phils with dollars. Result is what you got now, also the cronyism is still there, get rid of that and it could get better.......BUT who is going to Turn it round.. Arroyo?...lol do not think so...its going to take someone special with courage and integrity, the last person was Jose Rizal....we are still wating for the next person to step forward for that one!
