On December 3-4, 2019, school leaders and educators from different parts of the country will gather at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City for the 2019 PhilEd Conference which is organized by the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC).

For the first time, the 2019 PhilEd organizers issued a call for presentations for the concurrent sessions on emerging issues, namely: Developing Resilience; Addressing the Gender Question; Reaching the Last and the Least; Bully-Proofing Schools; and Teaching Sexual Responsibility.

With the help of the Program Design Committee that evaluated the proposals submitted, the following have been selected to present their schools’ policies and programs that address issues that affect our learners:
