Manila, May 25, 2014 – In a matter of days, millions of elementary pupils, high school and college students will troop to public and private schools, private and state-run colleges and universities as the 2014-2015 school year begins.
The man-made and natural calamities forced government to take a second look at structures, which served as learning and evacuation centers. How resilient are these buildings? Will there be a better teacher to pupil ratio this time? Are the country’s school teachers and professors equipped with the necessary skills and know how to transform youngsters to professionals? Is there really a mismatch between education and employment? Will the Philippines be left behind with the upcoming ASEAN integration which will take effect on January 1, 2016?
These are the basic questions that will be addressed in tomorrow’s (May 26, 2014) Tapatan sa Aristocrat at The Aristocrat, corner Roxas Blvd. and San Andres, Malate, Manila.
Confirmed guests are Asst. Secretary for Legal and Legislative Affairs Atty. Tonisito MC Umali (representing Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro, FSC), ACT-Teacher Party List Congressman Antonio L. Tinio and a product of public education system and now UP College of Law Professor Atty. Marwil Llasos.

Lim, Foundation for Upgrading the Standard in Education (FUSE) President and former Department of Education Officer-In-Charge Dr. Fe Hidalgo and Sr. Ma. Corazon P. Manalo, D.
