Additional Subsidy given to Top Executing Public Art High School

Seventeen of the country’s art schools offering the special program in the arts (SPA) will each obtain P500,000 in additional subsidy to boost the capacity of these schools in delivering the actual specialized program.

Education Secretary Armin Luistro said this is part of the government’s pushed to democratize access to other instructional tracks that nurture the creative skills of learners.” This is consistent with our want to enhance the basic education curriculum so that students who have the particular inclination towards the arts will have the actual venue to further develop their self-expression,” Luistro added.

The 17 growth schools were developed from the original 17 public higher schools offering SPA that was piloted in 2000. From the 17 pilot schools, the number extended to some 75 schools across the country which caters to students that favor the arts. The Seventeen expansion schools were picked from the 75 public higher schools after displaying capability to nurture more students in six art disciplines specifically music, visual arts, movie theater arts, creative writing, mass media arts and dance.
