The Algemeiner reports: The largest city in the Philippines will implement an Israeli education model in one of its public high schools, it was announced this week.

The city of Davao signed an agreement with Israel Sci-Tech Schools — the biggest educational network in Israel — to have a local high school adopt the highly successfully I-STEAM curriculum and a program called “Excellence in Education: A Lighthouse Project.” The school’s curriculum will undergo changes to include aspects of the network’s programs in innovation, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, as well as upgrades to its science and technology labs, according to a press release.

The new educational model aims to add innovation and arts to traditional STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education to prepare students for various jobs in the future, enhance their creativity and teach them to appreciate the importance of design. There are also aspects of the curriculum that focus on teaching students about business organization, marketing and entrepreneurship.
