Pagtitiyak ni PBBM: Tertiary education sa public universities, colleges libre pa rin

MANILA, Philippines- Nangako si Pangulong Ferdinand ”Bongbong” Marcos Jr. nitong Miyerkules na committed ang kanyang administrasyon sa pagbibigay ng libreng tertiary education sa public universities at colleges sa Pilipinas.

”This administration remains committed to the continuing provision of free tertiary education in public universities and colleges for qualified students as provided under the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act,” pahayag ni Marcos sa National Higher Education Day Summit. 

”We have allocated close to 134 billion pesos for our state and local universities and colleges this year so that more students can receive free tertiary education and more families will be eased of the burden of having to pay for college,” dagdag ng Punong Ehekutibo.

Ani Marcos, hindi dapat ituring na gastos ang perang ginagamit sa edukasyon, kundi isang investment.

”Scholastic yardsticks are not movable goalposts which we change every year to improve our numbers,” ayon pa kay Marcos.

”These must be regarded as firm benchmarks that are resistant to the pressures that seek to undercut the quality of that education. We must hold ourselves, our students, the entire system to a high standard and it is the only way that we will succeed in this fast-moving, changing world,” patuloy niya. RNT/SA
