    answer and Explanation:

    As with any other typical country, the Philippines has gone through various societal processes— either political or economical in nature or the combination thereof — that define the current structure of its society. But unlike most of its neighboring countries, the Philippines is not “purely” oriental in a sense.

    If the West-East Divide ever exists somewhere else in Asia, it is not evident that this country can be somewhere proximate to this demarcation.

    For more than three centuries the Philippines had undergone the colonization of the Spaniards (the first Spanish contingents came to the Philippines in 1521). By virtue of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, the Philippines came under American jurisdiction as a result of Spain’s loss to America in the Spanish-America War in 1898. From 1941 to 1944, during the Second World War, the Philippines had to put up with the atrocities of the Japanese.

    If the West-East Divide ever exists somewhere else in Asia, it is not evident that this country can be somewhere proximate to this demarcation.

    The years of the Americans’ political settlement before and after the Second World War saw the emergence of a Democratic society (the Philippines is the first country in Asia to have adopted Democracy as a political system). Many other democratic institutions have been established as a result of the American-Philippine relation.

    One of the salient impacts of the Americans to the Philippines is the education system which was structured and fashioned after American models. The current education system is an off-shoot of the system developed and exercised by a widely recognized group of American teachers in the early 1950’s called “Thomasites” (so-called after the ship “Thomas” with which they came to the country).

    Up to these times, English is the main medium of instruction used in all levels in school. Whether this medium is effective for Filipino students or not have been a question extensively debated in many parts of the country. The efficacy of education relies on different aspects, and one of them is the language being used. But all had to come down to one thing: Globalization has become the decisive factor in asserting English as the primary medium to be used in schools.

    The implication of this is multifold. An average tagalog-speaking first grader could have a trouble understanding, say, a mathematics subject taught in English while he, the student, in the first place is not yet basically familiar with that language (English) through which he is expected to learn that mathematics subject.

    The inevitability of Globalization has “forced” the system to embrace an approach to education that at times contrary to the conservative tendencies of Filipinos. Could the Philippines’ literacy rate of 95%, a national average and one of the highest literacy rates in Asia, attest to the fact that environment-imposed (or globalization-imposed) system is really effective? Another interesting thing to note is that the Philippines is one of the largest English-speaking nations in the world.

    These statistics speak for the ability of the Filipino people to adapt or adjust to an element foreign to their native environment. The Philippines’ education system basically conforms to the demands of Globalization.

    Yet despite the modern trend in the Philippines’ educational process, the popularity of superstitions in most areas of the country is still pervasive. The belief in the Albularyo or quack-doctor still persists when it comes to treating diseases and some types of mental illnesses. “Sanib” or spirit-possession, belief to supernatural phenomena and to the existence of supernatural characters or spirits (such as “manananggal” which is a version of Dracula but only this is half-bodied, has a wing like that of a bat and has the ability to transform to different kinds of animals) and other superstitions are still incorporated into the culture of the Filipinos. There have been cases of mental disorder caused by drug abuse and depression being interpreted as punishment by a “white lady” (a wandering spirit of a dead lady) or “nuno sa punso” (literally, elf living in the mound of soil).
