Schools urged to be sensitive to financial plight of parents

MANILA, March 1 (PNA) -- Private and public schools nationwide should be more sensitive than ever now to the financial troubles of Filipino families when they figure out how much fees they will be charging in the next academic year, 1-ANG EDUKASYON Party-list congressman Salvador Belaro, Jr. said Tuesday.

February 28 was the deadline for higher education institutions nationwide to conduct their tuition fee consultations with their stakeholders, according to Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Memorandum on Tuition Fee Increases (Memo Order No. 3, S. 2012).

"The latest findings of the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey on adult joblessness is a telling sign the affected 11.2 million adults will have great difficulty sending their dependents to school in the coming school year," Rep. Belaro, a former school administrator said.

Belaro also said "having senior high school as a buffer before college or higher technical training now allows Filipino families to prepare well and save for their kids' education."

Belaro, a former college of law dean, also urged the Department of Budget and Management and the Commission on Higher Education "to release very soon" the implementing rules and regulations on free college tuition in state universities and colleges.

"The month of March is the right time to release the IRR so families with college-ready students for June and August will have enough time to prepare," Belaro said.

He also called on students entering Grade 11 next school year to choose well the specialized senior high school track they will take. "While our country needs youths needed for the workplace, we also need more students to take up sports, arts, and humanities as careers. Less than 2,000 are in the sports track and less than 3,000 took the arts and design track in the current school year," Belaro stressed.

The 1-Ang Edukasyon congressman asked the education agencies and experts in education to inform Congress on why enrollment in these two senior high tracks were so low.

"How can the Philippines win Olympic gold medals, grand prizes in international art festivals, and earn the Oscars award in the foreign language film category if enrollments in these tracks are so low? From these youths, the achievers in sports and arts will come. We need more." (PNA)

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
