EDUCATION

EDUCATION: As widely recognized, Education is power and it holds the key to the solution of all our problems. It is a civil right endeavor and it is the greatest long term solution to all the social, economic and political issues confronting us today. In the words of a great legislator, Mr. Michael Honda, “the promise education holds for humanity encompasses all the spheres of human life and endeavor, therefore our mere existence, health, economic, political, security and all social aspects of our life depend on education.” So, if we deny our youth and our people good and appropriate education, both the fundamental, foundation and the continuity of our civilization will be correspondingly compromised. And this lack of the appropriate and responsible Education is the root cause of the ravages in our Communities.

It is the engine that moves the society and opens for humanity new frontiers and vistas of opportunities for the pursuit of happiness, and aids humanity to attain its greatest heights to achieve peace and prosperity.

Distilled as character–building, Education is a very potent weapon in fighting crimes of all descriptions— Hence our — SECURITY PROGRAM
Education as information and acquisition of knowledge is a very active means to pursue happiness and address all other socio-economic and even political problems, to attain civilization and to achieve higher standard and quality of life. This is why we need Education to help us pursue ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. Through Education we find ways and means in our quest for conquest of diseases - hence - our MEDICAL PROGRAM.

Taking all of the above into perspective, Education is the kin pin, the hub and engine that will crank and propel all our Programs to success. And that is why it is the anchor, the front and center of the existence and operations of Ihiala National USA Inc.

So, when we talk of education, we are basically talking about empowering the people through training and retraining in various fields of learning, character building and leadership development and a way to enable our people hone in their skills and talents, make them marketable to pursue effectively lucrative careers of their choosing and desist and refrain from graft as means of livelihood.

Acquiring the much needed education as the crux of our goal, the present situation and condition of our education system then have become a major challenge facing us. The morale of our youths and people in general is very about pursuit of formal education as a means to win the future. All the Schools both Secondary and Elementary we have in existence now lack most basic resources, necessities and supplies. – from desks, books, computers, chalks, chalkboards, stationeries, sports equipments to water supply, electricity and toilet facilities. The school buildings are all in serious disrepair. The curricula are badly structured if not inadequate. The extra mural/extra curricula activities are suspect and in most cases nonexistent. The teachers and educators are not adequately compensated, and so not motivated enough to do their job happily. This discouraging situation compounded with high tuition fees and high unemployment, attendant poverty and complacent Ministry of Education, the pursuit of education becomes a very demoralizing endeavor. As we expressed earlier, failure of education is failure of humanity. This is the challenge we are facing. That is why INUSA has established Education Program and is appealing to people of like minds to come together and rescue, modernize and to forestall the imminent impending collapse of our education system.

Ihiala National USA wants to change the situation by doing the following:

  1. Introduce programs that encourage students to stay in school, programs that tend to promote learning and scholarship and even promote adult education.
  2. Introduce programs that will instill in our people the wholesomeness of the dignity of Teaching Profession and both compensate and motivate teachers/educators to uphold their vocation.
  3. Undertake repairing and remodeling old and crumbling buildings, upgrade schools by building new and modern ones to accommodate future expansion and upgrade to Trade and Vocational Institutes that will be high on discipline, leadership, policy, skills and life’s strategies, fine and dramatic arts, for training and retraining in various career fields - arts, literature, computer science and information, agriculture, medicine, engineering, science and technology and Criminal Justice.
  4. Help restructure the courses and curricula to help in character building, help people hone in their talents and develop leadership qualities.
  5. Devise and introduce extra mural activities, sports and associations that will divert our youths away from dissipations to make them concerned and responsible citizens.
  6. Set up funds for scholarships and grants to help students pursue their various intellectual and career inclinations.
  7. Build libraries, zoos and museums of arts, science and natural history—

Our success in these projects will definitely lead to the eventual solution of our security and other socioeconomic problems and will make Ihiala a City of substance.
