(dot) Edu (dot) PH

If I were the president of this God-forsaken country, I would have prioritized education over everything else. There are so many issues that our country has to deal with like security and safety, food, shelter, infrastructures, and telecommunications. I don’t think Gloria is obsessed with education because right now, education is one of the least prioritized institutions of the government. The national budget was surprisingly big yet the education sector gets the least amount. It’s so sad and alarming. It’s like education is turning into a business venture. Whether the institution is subsidized by the government or not the institutions need to generate income for its survival. I’m cool with that. But the quality of education is dwindling in an alarming rate. This is one of the disadvantages of technological advancements and globalization.

No, I don’t blame our president and other politicians out there if they do not prioritize education because each one of them has different goals and dreams for their respective places. That’s the beauty of democracy. If Raul Roco won the epic presidential race three years ago, I think, really think that he would prioritize education over other things.

Ang Kabataan ay ang Pag-asa ng Bayan. Pero paano natin masasabi na sila nga ang pag-asa ng bayan kung hindi nila nakukuha ang kanilang karapatan sa edukasyon?
