Building Effective Public School Systems in the Philippines

In July 2010 undergraduate student Brian Dillon conducted interviews in Quezon City, the Philippines, as part of an ongoing initiative of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. Dillon focused on the development of public schools with the Ateneo Center for Educational Development (ACED). He conducted a series of interviews with members of the campus and wider communities in order to explore how Ateneo's Jesuit-driven mission motivates and frames ACED's work; its emphasis on empowering the school communities with a total school approach; the challenges it faces going forward; and the applicability of the model elsewhere.
