The Language of Democracy: The Legacy of American Colonial Education in the Philippines
College of Social Studies
English (United States)
For almost half a century, the Philippines existed as a colony of the United States. Aiming to prepare Filipinos for self-government, American colonial policy expressly promoted education. This study examines the program for education and its role in Philippine colonial history, and concludes that the established educational system, despite its various shortcomings, ultimately helped enable Philippine society to achieve independence.
