The biggest gathering of the country’s teachers, school administrators, and policymakers is all set to happen during the Philippine Education Conference (PhilEd 2023) on December 5-7 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
One of the highlights of the event will be a keynote presentation from 2023 Ramon Magsaysay Awardee for Emergent Leadership Mr. Korvi Rackshand, who will share his experiences and insights on educational reforms, with focus on inclusive education and his work championing quality education in Bangladesh.
Hosted every two years, this year’s PhilEd carries the theme “Inspiring Reforms that Transform Philippine Education,” with the aim to serve as an avenue for the participants to tackle future directions in their school setting, with emphasis on improving the performance of Filipino learners.
Other notable speakers during the event are members of the Second Congressional Commission on Education (EDCOM 2), the national commission tasked to undertake a comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the performance of the Philippine education sector. Resource persons from global education forums and sought-after local professionals in the field are also slated to share their expertise.
Launched in 2013, the conference is organized by the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) every two years, with about 3,500 educators attending every gathering. This year, PhilEd 2023 comes back as a face-to-face event after its online edition in 2021.
PEAC Executive Director Doris Ferrer expressed hope that the conference would give the impetus for the educational sector and the EDCOMM 2 to undertake reforms that would genuinely transform the country’s educational system.
