Education as a key societal sector in the Philippines is significantly affected with ASEAN 2015. With its motto, “One vision, one identity, one community,” ASEAN seeks to establish a regional community this 2015 among its 10 member countries. Understandably, education lies at the core of ASEAN’s development process that contributes to the creation of a knowledge-based society, community building and enhancement of ASEAN competitiveness. Under the third pillar of ASEAN Community – more specifically ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) – member-states are expected to invest heavily on its people’s education. Given the Philippines’ membership in the ASEAN, our educational system will definitely be affected as it has far-ranging ramifications in terms of employment, jobs and leadership trainings, among others.
