Quantifying public high school accessibility in the Philippines
Quality education is essential to sustainable development. Some key education indicators such as net enrollment rates may not take into account other relevant factors related to school accessibility. In this work, aggregated datasets from the Department of Education are used to calculate effective number of high schools across the country. A high school potential map which visualizes areas of the Philippines with different effective number of high schools relative to an area may be useful to policy makers to identify which elementary schools have possible accessibility issues to secondary education.
