At a time when the Aquino government is claiming to be instituting reforms in the education system, mainly through its K to 12 program for basic education, why is it that tertiary education seems to be getting farther from the reach of the poor majority?
Citing data from the Office of Scholarships and Student Services (OSSS), the Office of the Student Regent revealed that 5,391 students applied for student loans in UP Diliman alone. As of last semester, the OSR said, 1,218 students were not able to pay their loans before the scheduled release of grades.
