"Multiple Intelligences" is not supported by sound or consistent validating empirical evidence, and because these theories do not respect the constraints provided by cumulative empirical evidence from cognitive neuroscience research, these theories should not be taught without providing the context of their existing empirical support. Enthusiasm for their application to classroom practice should be tempered by an awareness that their lack of sound empirical support makes it likely that their application will have little real power to enhance student learning beyond that stimulated by the initial excitement of something new.DepEd is therefore hinging its new curriculum on something that is not based on evidence. Worse, DepEd may have even misunderstood Multiple Intelligences. A quick glance of how Multiple Intelligences can be implemented inside a classroom shows that DepEd could not possibly embrace this notion. The following is an example taken from Concept to Classroom:

DepEd not only copies an unproven notion in education, but also apparently makes an outrageous claim. Classes are not small in Philippine public schools. When something is being falsely advertised to the public, it is immoral.
