Philippine Politics and Governance

New product

I was not a fan of politics myself and had tried avoiding the topic when I was teaching in basic education. But teaching in tertiary education enlightened me that as a citizen of this country and as a human and social being, politics and governance have relevance in my life. One common misconception about politics is to regard it as a common person-government relationship. However, politics and governance exist even outside the government institutions such as the exercise of power in the family, imposition of rules in school, your right of way as a driver and/or pedestrian, and your responsibilities toward your neighbor. It is imperative that everyone must learn at least the basics of politics and governance.

I always believe in the concept of less is more as a rule in teaching. Information overload is not always beneficial, especially in the classroom, considering that the subject is only one of the many subjects that the students must study to finish their education. Besides, the students are not political science majors. So I don’t expect them to achieve the same proficiency of the subject as that of political science students who study it for four years in college. The goal is to inform the students with the essential things about politics and governance, empower them by providing knowledge and skills, and make them responsible citizens in their practice of their rights and application of what they have learned in the subject.

To practice the less-is-more method of teaching, the teacher sifts all information overload is not always beneficial, especially in the classroom, considering that the subject is only one of the many subjects that the students must study to finish their education.

The goal is to inform the students with the essential things about politics and governance, empower them by providing knowledge and skills, and make them responsible citizens in their practice of their rights and application of what they have learned in the subject.

Mastery of the basics is just the first step, however. The students must proceed to advanced topics if they want to be more adept in analyzing politics and governance. With the mastery of the essential concepts presented in this book, as well as the experiences that apply to the concepts and methods learned, the students will be more capable in learning the more complex aspects of political science. I would like to emphasize that this is not the end-all in the study of politics and governance. Rather, this book provides a strong reference to the essentials which may serve as a stepping stone in the study of the advanced topics of the subject.
