CONGRATULATIONS Mr & Mrs Chris Bernido for the 2010 Magsaysay Award

For us, it has always been the bigger picture, the country. We both wanted to do something for the country. ~Marivic Bernido

The husband and wife tandem created something innovative in their teaching Math and Science to school children in Jagna, Bohol. These methods did not pass through the eyes and ears of educators without  them being noticed and infact was lauded for its significance and innovativeness. Winning the 2010 Magsaysay Awards (considered the Nobel Prize of Asia) this year is not the first of their awards.

Educators from all over the Philippines (and even some international bodies) come to Jagna, Bohol to observe and learn from them.

Congratulations Ma'am and Sir for the awards you so deserved.

Malipayon ang tibuok lalawigan sa Bohol tungod ninyo.

2010 Ramon Magsaysay Awardees and Filipino educators Christopher Bernido and Ma. Victoria Carpio-Bernido disagree with the DepEd's plan to extend basic education to 12 years. "It's like jumping from the frying to the fire," said Christopher. They say that the lack of qualified teachers and resources are a bigger problem.
