Poverty should not be a barrier for effective learning and getting quality education.
This is the principle that guided the NRCP researchers from the Philippine Normal University (PNU) to develop a new pedagogical model for teaching financially disadvantaged students, at the same time providing them access to quality education.
This innovative model was introduced to the public for the first time together with six other completed studies in the field of education and pedagogy during the NRCP’s 1st Basic Research Symposium on November 7, 2017 at the Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros, Manila. All seven studies were funded by NRCP.
NRCP researcher, Dr. Gloria Luz M. Nelson talks about the contributing factors of teenage pregnancy.
In recent years, successive catastrophic climatological disasters hit Eastern Visayas particularly the provinces of Leyte. The data from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, NDRRMC: 12.07.14, show that super typhoon Yolanda that severely hit the region in November 2013 killed 6,300 people while typhoon Ruby that moderately barreled the region in November 2014 displaced a total of 51,495 families or 229,865 people.
