Abstract
The emerging needs of private basic education schools have been the issue of the school administrators in terms of development. The schools always embrace the new paradigm of teaching and learning for the betterment of the students and the school as well. Along the management of the school are the situations and problems that are crucial to the development. Hence, this study aimed to determine the descriptions and problems of the sampled private basic education schools as bases in preparing a five-year continuing development program. Descriptive-comparative method of research was utilized to obtain the information needed in this study. Mann Whitney U-test was also used to determine the difference of the responses of the administrators and teachers. Interviews were conducted to substantiate the information needed and to further validate the variables mentioned in the questionnaire-checklist. A questionnaire-checklist was used to obtain the data and findings describing the private basic education schools in terms of administration, curriculum, faculty, goals and objectives, student personnel services, library, human and physical resources, laboratory, and SOCI (Social Orientation and Community Involvement). Likewise, it was also through the questionnaire-checklist that the problems encountered by the respondents were assessed. These encountered problems were on enrollment, faculty, facilities, library resources, linkages, Social Orientation and Community Involvement, instructional materials, NAT (National Achievement Test) performance, and accreditation preparation. Hence, the offered solutions on the cited problems were also assessed. These teacher and administrator-respondents aspired to produce excellent students and build a strong foundation of basic education schools that would be globally competitive in all areas of learning and operations. Hence, a Five-year Continuing Development Program was prepared and hereby recommended.
