Education Trends in Perspective Analysis of the World Education Indicators ‐‐ 2005 Edition: Philippines
The Philippines was immediately affected by the fi nancial crisis in Asia in 1997, but to a less severe degree than other parts of the region ‐ economic growth returned by 1999. Overall, the Philippines experienced robust growth in GDP (30 per cent) over the period 1995‐2002. However, the country has also had strong population growth: the population aged 5‐14 years grew by 15 per cent, the greatest increase in WEI countries. This puts pressure on the education system to increase student numbers at all levels.
