Abstract: In the pursuit of the Philippines to achieve development, corruption has been a perennial obstacle. This dissertation addresses political scientists and area studies specialists interested in comprehending implementation within widespread corruption in a Philippine perspective. The Department of Education (DepEd) is considered to be one of the nationa??s most corrupt agencies. Two existing DepEd policies possess striking similarities yet reveal diametrically-opposed outputs. The Textbook Delivery Programme (TDP) has been described a failure while the Programme on Basic Education (PROBE) has been hailed a success. The study accounts for the contrast of implementation using local perspectives via a??narratives of implementation actors.a?? Findings provide insights on: (1) the issues and challenges that accompany the evolving educational bureaucracy in the Philippines; (2) the utility of network actor perspectives in appreciating the myriad concerns that determine and impede implementation performance and (3) the causes and impact of corruption and policy implementation on government programs.
