Aquino assures education remains top priority of his administration

President Benigno S. Aquino said that education and the institutionalization of educational reforms remains his administration’s top priority in order to ensure that Philippine education becomes at par with world standards and so that Filipino students will have a fighting chance to land a job of their choice after graduation.

In his speech keynoting the 18th Founding Anniversary of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) at its main office in Quezon City Thursday, the President assured that the government would continue to pour the much needed funds so that these reforms, such as the improvement of a school’s infrastructure, equipment, facilities and wages may be implemented.

He noted that among the moves that the government was making to improve education was the yearly increases his government was putting intto the budget on education since he assumed office: P175-billion in 2010, 207.3-billion in 2011 and for 2012, a hefty 36.5 percent increase to P238.8-billion.

He added that this year marked the implementation of the Department of Education’s K to 12 basic education program that required all students to undergo a year of kindergarten and two additional years of secondary education in order to better prepare them for the world.

“Ang gusto natin, makapalag ang ating mga graduate sa pandaigdig na merkado—at hindi ito mangyayari kung pipiliting isiksik ang mga kaalaman sa loob ng sampung taon ng basic education,” the President said.

The President also announced that a supplemental budget of P4.2-billion has been allocated for State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) for their use to improve their delivery of education to students.

“At heto na nga po ang good news para sa inyong sektor: karagdagang P4.2 billion po ang inilaan natin para sa ating mga SUCs. Sa tulong ng mga katuwang na ahensya, gagamitin ang pondong ito sa pagpapaunlad ng mga pasilidad at imprastraktura, sa pagtataguyod ng mataas na kalidad ng pagtuturo, at pagkakaloob ng mga scholarships,” the President said.

“Ang gusto natin: mapa-karpintero man, mananahi, mekaniko, doktor, guro, inhinyero, o abugado—anumang pangarap ng ating kabataan—nabibigyan sila ng kakayahan upang panghawakan ang sariling tadhana,” he added.

The President then implored the help of CHED and its employees to join government efforts to improve further the educational system in the country so that the benefits of these reforms will redound to all.

“Napipitas na nga po natin ang mga bunga ng pagtahak sa tuwid na landas. Nakita naman po ninyo kung paano nagbubuhos ng suporta ang inyong pamahalaan sa sektor ng edukasyon; ang tangi po nating hinihiling ay ang inyong pakikiisa sa tuwid na landas, at pagsiguro na ginagampanan ninyo nang husto ang inyong mga tungkulin,” the President said.

“Gumigising at bumabangon na ang Pilipino. Kasama po natin sila: Itinitindig natin ang isang makatarungan at maunlad na Pilipinas. Ito ang ating ipapamana sa mga susunod na salinlahi: Isang lipunan kung saan ang mga pangarap ay abot-kamay, isang sistema kung saan walang naiiwan, at isang bayan kung saan panlahat ang kasaganahan,” he added.
