SALUNGGUHIT

The Real Target

By Jasper Almirante/ Bulatlat

Child labor is one of the big problems in Third World countries like the Philippines. While efforts to eliminate it are laudable, they miss the target if they do not zero in on its roots: a system that breeds mass poverty and the concomittant lack of educational opportunities for children. In such a social fabric, there usually is no path for children except to work before they could even learn how to play.

Salungguhit literally means to underline; figuratively, to underscore or highlight.
