- In the Philippines, one of the major problem is providing quality education for the indigenous learners. Research shows that around the world, the marginalized indigenous communities are characterized by poor education due to many compelling reasons. Major attribute to this is the lack of schools and especially teachers who are culturally competent to teach diverse learners. The objective of this paper is to asses in service teachers level of their cultural competence and determine the competencies needed to increase the pre-service teacher’s multicultural competencies. Data is obtained by quantitative method and bares a promising model in raising the multicultural competencies of preservice teachers.
