The National Service Training Program is a nationwide initiative by the Philippine Government towards ensuring the active participation of the Filipino youth in understanding and combating societal issues. For the European Studies program, this entailed teaching students from public high schools from across Quezon City about World History. The experience, overall, highlighted the developmental issue concerning access to quality education in the country. The group seeks to analyze the issue in two parts: first, the gaps in educational access in the Philippines; and second, the quality given the country’s educational landscape. Through the use of frameworks such as the Basic Needs and the Human Rights Approach coupled with the application of the institutionalist perspective, the group intends to arrive at a better understanding of the issue and ways in which it can be appropriately addressed. Moreover, the group will employ a micro to macro level analysis to map out what realities the NSTP engagement reveals on a national and global level.
