Fernandinos Graduate From ALS Program [ Tuesday, 7th of July 2015 | 2 years ago ]


Mayor Edwin D. Santiago led the graduation of students in the Alternative Learning System program held at the Mini Convention Hall on July 6.

A total of ninety five students benefited from the said program of the city in partnership with the Department of Education, which aims to help people who do not have access or ability to have formal education in schools, thus giving them a substitute to gain knowledge and skills through the Alternative Learning System.

According to Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Esperanza Laya, this is an opportunity for the parents to provide an alternative education for their children, and a starting point for the children to have a better future, since everyone is entitled to have a free basic education.

The Alternative Learning System is composed of two major programs; one is the Basic Literacy Program and the Continuing Education Program – Accreditation and Equivalency.

For his part, Mayor EdSa said that he is fully supporting the initiative of the Department of Education in giving free education to Fernandinos who doesn’t have the means to acquire formal education in schools.

“Ang magandang edukasyon ay hindi lang nangyayari o nanggagaling sa loob ng silid-aralan. Nais natin ipaalam sa lahat na kahit saan ay maaaring makakuha ng libreng edukasyon lalo na at nariyan ang ALS. Dahil nais na rin natin na ang ating siyudad ay makilala bilang isang komunidad ng mga ekselenteng Fernandinos.”

Alternative Learning System education provides ten programs; Basic Literacy Program, Accreditation and Equivalency Program, Indigenous Peoples Education, Arabic Language and Islamic Values Education in Alternative Learning System (ALIVE in ALS,) Alternative Learning System for Differently-Abled Persons (ALS-DAP,) Adolescent Reproductive Health (ARH,) Parent Education, Family Basic Literacy Program (FBLP,) Radio-Based Instruction (RBI) and the Informal Education for Disadvantaged Children.

The only difference between formal education and the ALS Non-formal education is the setting. Formal education is provided inside the classrooms and is headed by trained formal school teachers.

Meanwhile, the ALS Non-formal Education is being conducted outside school premises such as the community learning centers, libraries, multi-purpose halls and being managed by ALS facilitators.

The city government of San Fernando is fully supporting the ALS Education and is inviting all Fernandinos who wants to access free basic education.
