privatization and commercialization of public
education persists. This had been a constant battle
of those who contradicts the handing out of State
Universities and Colleges(SUCs) to private
corporation. This seems to be way of the Aquino
administration in rationalizing and increasing
school fees through foreign entities.
As student, who studies at a State University, who
lives without a mother and a father and dependent
only of scholarships, I take in risks over these
dangerous ideals and move of the government.
Our country continues to suffer from 'foreign
ideologies' from the hands of the liberalists' and
capitalists' minds who view Philippine education as
marketable. It can never be nor it has not to be
stone-lifted experimentation. Every decision with
lieu of it is at my utmost concern as youth who
got dreams ahead.
Picturing out, this privatization of SUCs wil only
end up to the decrease of enrolment and then
employment. What this issue has is the venturing
out of possibilities of winning global
competitiveness-frozen to the lowest extremities.
This social and constitutional function of education
turn to market and commodity one has to struggle
(a lot) to have, thus, providing students and their
parents heavier burdens in continuing higher
education. If the government takes this as door of
investments, they should be reminded that this is
education, more than clearer away from market
Privatization of SUCs is not democracy. Our
constitution defies it as public good and right. This
defiance of the constitution is being carried out by
SUCs and this is an issue of unconstitutionality and
antipeople. Once it full takes effect, education will
ponder as privileges. Simply because rights are
protected and ensured by public entities, privileges
are for private entities.
I am one of the more than 60 per cent tertiary
students in the country enrolled in public...
