A Reflection on: What is whole person education and multiple intelligence?
Every individual is unique in their talents, their personalities, and their natures Similarly, everyone also has different strengths and inclinations in which their intelligence falls into, much like how some people are better at understanding emotions and conveying empathy while others are able to live by logic and reasoning better than some. My most memorable example of this would be from a show called “Young Sheldon” where Sheldon, the main character, was a young genius and was always scientifically-driven in his actions, words, and thoughts. This shows he has a high Intelligence Quotient or IQ. He was always quick to think and solve, and was always by-the-book with his knowledge. However, in one episode, he was shown to have a hard time interpreting random images beyond their physical appearance. He was only able to touch on the physical and surface details of the images presented to him. Sheldon was never really one to initiate conversations and make friendships, and his experience and knowledge were limited to the scientific and mathematical data he indulged himself in. His twin sister Missy on the other hand was able to create and imagine extensive and detailed interpretations of the images presented to her, going so far as creating a whole plot for the characters. She was able to use her experiences and observations to make inferences that were merely subliminally expressed in the situations she was presented with. Missy had displayed high Emotional Intelligence (EQ) as well as Social Intelligence (SQ), some things Sheldon fell short of. She was able to feel with the test officiator too and, though this, was able to form a bond with her. Their older brother George, however, had high Financial Intelligence (FQ) and Adversity Intelligence (AQ). He grew up to be a great businessman and he was always good with his street-smarts, implying that he has what it takes to survive the adversities of life and take on challenges efficiently, whether financially or not. He was also shown to have high Emotional Intelligence as he was able to empathize with the troubles of his younger siblings and his parents, making sure to always take care of them in his own ways even with his stubborn personality.
All three characters showed strength in their intelligence but we all must strive to be masters of all 6 types of intelligences — the last one being Cultural Intelligence (CQ) which is the skill of being able to adapt to cultural differences. To develop holistically and imbue the teachings of Whole Person Education, we must aim to be well-rounded and well-versed in these intelligences, growing wholly and completely as we continue to improve on ourselves.

A Reflection on: “Whole Person Education: The Goals and the Challenges” – an interview with Dr. Ben S. Malayang III
I would first like to make mention of my new-found respect for Dr. Ben Malayang and his display of great eloquence in this interview of his. His passion for Christian-supported excellence and his higher vision for a better Silliman was truly radiating in his words, making the article a treat to read. I agree with his statements that what really makes Whole Person Education important is that it is able to extend the extent of one’s ability as a learner, as a servant-leader, as a Christian, and as a human being. This makes it a challenge to every organization and institution part of the United Board and ASEAN to strive for greater heights in order to produce students that are well-rounded, competent, professional, and invisionary — all while doing so in the image of God. He aims to achieve this by setting standards, like an accreditation system, to fully hit all points necessary to make their graduates “whole”. In terms of integrating this in Silliman University, he makes smart use of Silliman’s 5C’s — the classroom, court, culture, Church, and, community — so that Silllimanians are imbued with all the enriching aspects of Christian-centered-self-development.
In support, Dr. Malayang expressed that this vision of his would be no problem to the staff and professors of Silliman as most of the faculty in higher learning institutions in Asia are well equipped and highly competent in adapting and aiming towards further professional improvement while carrying with them our Asian heritage. This, to me, in-line with the previous statements, are the essence of Whole Person Education and is what makes this subject all worth-while.
I believe whole person education involves ethics and critically analyzing things, situations, and problems to sanely, soundly, and ethically come up with a conclusion. It helps develop a person’s character and values, builds critical thinking things, and develops one’s ability to grow and learn further.

I have heard first hand of the complaints of friends, family members, classmates, and even strangers on the inefficient, inadequate, and unfair system that is the Philippine Health Care System. From the lack of available, affordable, and quality healthcare facilities and services, the inaccessible and lacking health care centers and equipment in rural areas, and the brutal working conditions and minimal wages of the health workers, to the acts of discrimination, corruption, and favoritism involved — the people truly have a lot to say about the healthcare system, and while their complaints have no reason to be invalidated, there is still a lot to unpack about the Philippine healthcare system and health care in general. However bad the condition of our healthcare system is as of now, a lot of these faults are actually not to blame on the health care workers themselves, but it evolves multiple factors. Health systems are all kinds of mechanisms and resources that work to assist people in all their health concerns and needs. Leadership and Management (most notably those under government management), the fundings and financial flow, the human resources, the inventory, and intelligence are all key fundamentals in running a working health care system but having these all present doesn’t necessarily indicate that there is quality. There needs to be proper management, transparent financial use and gains, enough health care workers to not overwork the staff, proper inventory and stock of materials, and the intelligence and technology to keep records and information updated and safe.
