RA 7722
RA 7796
RA 9155
Commission on Higher Education
(CHED) was created on May 18, 1994 through the passage of
Republic Act No. 7722

The creation of CHED was part of a broad agenda of reforms on the country’s education system outlined by the

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) is the key leader of the

ensure that quality higher education is accessible to all who seek it particularly those who may not be able to afford it;
guarantee and protect academic freedom for continuing intellectual growth, advancement of learning and research, development of responsible and effective leadership, education of high level professionals, and enrichment of historical and cultural heritages; and
commit to moral ascendancy that eradicates corrupt practices, institutionalizes transparency and accountability and encourages participatory governance in the Commission and the sub-sector.
Section 8 of R.A. 7722, the CHED
has the following powers and functions:
Formulate and recommend development plans, policies,priorities, and programs on higher education;

Formulate and recommend development plans, policies, priorities, and programs on research;

Director General, TESDA

is a systematic delegation of authority at all levels of management and in all of the organization. authority is retained to the top management concerning major decisions and framing policies that involve the whole organization. The rest of the authority may be delegated to the middle level and lower level of management. The administration of the educational system in the Philippines is decentralized into three foci (trifocalized) having three different agencies forefront the three educational levels of the system.
Reasons for pursuing the decentralization of the Philippine Education System are:
1. Poor quality of Education
2. Shortfalls in classrooms
3. Shortfalls in textbooks and teachers
4. Low achievement in science, math and language
5. Disparity in rural and urban areas in terms of achievement

Programs with Recommendations to the Decentralization of the Philippine Education System
1. The Congressional Commission on Education (EDCOM) report provided the impetus for Congress to pass RA 7722 and RA 7796 in 1994 creating the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), respectively.
2. Philippine Education Sector Study (1998)
3. Philippine Commission on Education Reform (2000)
PESS and PCER recommended other actions: ensure adequate
financing and improve the quality of basic education; slow and reverse the haphazard expansion of low-quality tertiary institutions;
provide equitable access at all levels so that deserving poor households and communities can benefit from public education provision; and
improve overall sector management through greater local participation and accountability.

4. Republic Act 7160 or the Local Government Code of 1991
Decentralization aims to widen the decision making while increasing responsibility and accountabilty. the local governemtn now play a role in construction, repair and maintenance of school buildings and other facilities of public primary and secondary schools, establishment and maintenance of extension classes when necessary, and sports activities at the division, district, municipal and barangay levels.

Education Reform Recommendations
1. Promote school-based management as a system of empowering the school to provide leadership and for the community that serves to have ownership of the school.
2. The trifocalization of education was intended to guaratee concenation on basic education and effectiveness in the delivery of basic education
