Experimentation in Times of COVID 19. Didactic Sequence “Influence of pH on plant irrigation” for a High School Chemistry Course
Original Research
This paper presents strategies that support the realization of experimentation in times that we cannot be in face-to-face situations in teaching laboratories. Experimentation and recreational activities, concept maps, bibliographic research, analogies, in combination with didactic readings were the main strategies on which it was supported for the realization of this work. It is exemplified by the didactic sequence “Influence of pH on plant irrigation." with its respective didactic reading. The results of the exercise of evaluation and regulation of the learning obtained in a Course of High School Chemistry are also presented.

Peace Education and Peace Culture in a Philippine Schools Division
Original Research
Utilizing a combination of quantitative – qualitative research approaches, this study gathered information on the underlying structural and socio-cultural factors in the Schools Division of Nueva Vizcaya that build peace as well as how schools promote some factors that build peace culture and the challenges they encounter in promoting peace education. Findings of the study revealed that generally, the school administrators, teachers and student leaders dispensed their power based on mutual agreements and they followed the democratic type. There was free flow of information in the school and rules and regulations were treated as flexible. Teaching styles were perceived to be innovative and student-centered. Learning gains are creative, supervised and inclusive. School – community partnerships through the Homeroom Parents – Teachers’ Association (HPTA) are sustained, empowering and treated as major partner in the holistic education of the learners. The Division greatly promotes peace education through curriculum integration, instructional contents, pedagogies, instructional materials used, and initiatives in extra and co-curricular activities, community extension, school policies and rules, plan and program and peace linkages. However, based on document scanning and analysis, areas that need to be enhanced were seen in establishing greater articulation of peace education in teacher pedagogies, instructional materials, community extension and linkages. Peace plan and program must be made more specific and concrete. Forging stronger partnerships between the school and private, governmental, and non-governmental organizations were seen as vital in sustaining peace education. The proposed Peace Education Action Plan which is aimed to enhance the peace education program in the Schools Division of Nueva Vizcaya was seen as relevant since they are largely based on the findings of this study.

Management of Dento-Maxillary Disharmony in Angle Class I malocclusion with Normobite: A Case Report
Case Report
Dento-maxillary disharmony is a disproportion between the size or mesiodistal diameter of teeth and the perimeter of the corresponding alveolar arches. This case report describes the orthodontic treatment of a 17-year-old female patient with a normo occlusal class I malocclusion with a persistent temporary tooth. The goals were to maintain skeletal profile and Class I, eliminate crowding and correct tooth axis to achieve a bilateral Class I canine and maintain a bilateral Class I molar relationship, as well as to achieve adequate overbite and overjet, correct the midline, and achieve good balance and occlusal function.

Ear to the Rough Ground: Why Head Teacher Transfers in Uganda are Going to be Increasingly Controversial
Original Research
The critical challenge, in developing countries, of educational management policy implementation in general, and headteacher transfers in particular, is to force the various paradigms meant to ground them to the rough ground. Even the market-oriented competitive model risks creating new forms of exclusion, corruption and exploitation if not grounded in the personal engagement with daily struggles and ambiguities of lived experience. We propose a harmonization of approaches to headteacher transfers that avoids handling reality through univocal and polarized lenses. Conclusively, beyond World Bank common prescriptions, we suggest a more heteronomous and care-based professional ethics in the wake of Covid-19.

Student Services Awareness and Satisfaction in a Private Higher Education Institution amid the Pandemic
Original Research
Managing student affairs and services is a dynamic and engaging task that all schools must have to deal with effectively and efficiently. Covid – 19 pandemic has brought new and unprecendented challenges where the Office of Student Affairs and Services has to offer innovative solutions to ensure that teaching and learning will continue. This study was conducted to assess the services offered to students in Saint Mary’s University College Department, a private higher education institution in the Northern Luzon, Philippines. It found out that, generally, students were aware and satisfied on the services provided by the school. In all the services presented, students’ responses vary from having totally no knowledge at all to very much aware. Further, Gender, School and Year Level were not considered as factors in the way student respond to the level of awareness and satisfaction except on the Student Handbook Development and Student Discipline. The crux of students’ awareness and satisfaction rests on how the school could deliver the services faster, stress-free and at the most convenient possible way in the context of students. Finally, this study forwards three important services that could enhance student services, these are creating of a “One – Stop Shop” where students can have all the necessary links and information; reorganization of the student study group program (SSGP) through virtual meetings and enhancement of the activities of the guidance and counseling team.

Plea from Within: The Plights of Pre-service Teachers in the Midst of the New Normal of Education
Original Research
The new normal of education provides educators a huge leap and opportunities to re-invent the future. Affected by the turmoil of the pandemic are the pre-service teachers. This study found out that pre-service teachers need to learn the rigors of teaching through Narratology, a configural mode of understanding and principles – the meanings of their stories and experiences as part of an identity development. In light of the new phenomenon in education, the informants felt unprepared, but as to their experiences, they could adapt to technologies, and maximize their potentials. Some factors that were found to affect the pre-service teachers’ pandemic student teaching are: lesson planning is tedious, and internet played a big role in their practicum. It is recommended that the experiences of the pre-service teachers may be incorporated in modifying the pre-service teaching practicum of the next pre-service teachers in the locale of the study in order to upskill them with the desired outcomes in the new normal of education; thus, future proofing the would-be teachers from this pandemic batch.

Influence of Students’ Social Persuasion on Examination Malpractices among Students in Universities in Kiambu County, Kenya
Original Research
The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible influence of students’ social persuasion on examination malpractices among undergraduate students in Universities within Kiambu County. Social persuasion is one of the main factor contributing towards examination malpractice. The target population was 183,760 undergraduates’ students, lecturers and University administrators from Universities within the County of Kiambu, where one private university and one public university were randomly selected. The data collected from the pilot exercise, was used to compute Cronbach’s alpha reliability coefficient which was found to be r = 0.856, hence the instruments were reliable. The quantitative data obtained was analyzed using SPSS version 25, and was presented in descriptive statistics inform of frequencies and percentages. Inferential statistics in the form of linear regression was used to test the relationship between independent and dependent variables in each objective. Linear Regression Results were presented in model summary tables, ANOVA tables and coefficient tables. The incorporation of modern technology in the entire process of examination administration and certification would be important in reducing the examination malpractices. An examination policy shift in universities would be necessary too.
