We all know that last Monday (July 22, 2013) President Benigno Aquino III enumerated the accomplishments of his administration in his 4th SONA and emphasized that it was made possible by the Filipino people. Perhaps I think the most important of his SONA is about the education here in the Philippines.
“Sa edukasyon naman po: ang layunin nating itaas ang kalidad ng kaalamang natututuhan ng kabataan, upang matapos mag-aral ay mapanghawakan nila ang mga oportunidad na bumubukas sa ating lipunan: Natupad. Nabura na po ang minana nating kakulangan sa libro at upuan, at kung magpapatuloy nga po ang pagpapakitang-gilas ni Kalihim Armin Luistro, pati ang kakulangan sa silid-aralan ay mabubura na rin. Ang magandang balita pa: may kakayahan na tayong paghandaan ang magiging pangangailangan dahil sa K to 12 program.”
Mr. President and the administration really gave their best to give a high quality education to each and every Filipinos who wants to study and who really wants to achieve the opportunity to work for the country and for their family, especially our children who has dreams of their own. They added more books and chairs for the schools, and if they will continue more classrooms will be added. This work that has been done is for the students in the Public Schools whose experiencing lack of books, chairs and classrooms, especially now that the number of students in Public schools is increasing. Another thing is we’re preparing for the needs of the K to 12 program, 2 more years been added for the students to study. The implementation of K to 12 program for me is important about the work that our President established, because he really priorities high quality education for the next generation.
For me the thing that they accomplished about the education here in the Philippines should continue and should be the priority of the country. Why? Because how can we be a good country if our education is as bad as the problems of our country. Education is the key to success, a very popular quote that we all know. Because how can we enter a good life if we cannot finish through our education which is the key for us to be successful.
