When I was director of science and education at the Program Implementation Agency and concurrently technical consultant to the board of national education, my first task was to pin-point the fundamental problems of Philippine education and to present possible solutions. I submitted my report in five volumes. It was the result not only of my own thinking but also of those of leading professors of science and genuine scholars who had obtained their higher degrees from abroad, and who were actually teaching advanced courses. Filipino graduates from leading European and American universities formed the cross-section of our group. Many of them were young department heads from the U.P., La Salle, and Ateneo, and scientists at the Philippine Atomic Energy Commission's atomic reactor center.
