A Kid's Review on December 23, 2009
Format: Paperback
very informative and impartial. a lot of observations from the early american teachers in the philippines. i would say they were the precursor of the peace corps. ambassadors of goodwill. over all, i would say the thomasites were a bunch of good people with good intentions. i am not suprised that the filipinos loved the american because they made education reachable to the vast majority of the population. during the spanish regime, only the rich and the spaniards have access to education, hence there was a great desire and craving for the rest of the population. i know nothing is perfect, i know they may have been used by their govt for other motives but ask any elderly filipino 80 yrs old and above,about "peace time" - the period before world war 2. and they would say life was good. a lot of the thomasites came to love the filipinos and the country that they never left. there is a section of the north cemetery in manila for the thomasites. the sad thing though is after 100 yrs, it seems like all the thomasites' efforts were in vain. the philippines is like a house that has been neglected - that used to be beautiful and with a lot of potential.

a rare book. it started the free public education in the Philippines. good intentions, but public education in the Philippines deteriorated over the years. sad but true.
