Neglect of the Future
What is called human capital is important
in the progress of any nation, and in the development of this essential
resource, education plays an indispensable part. This was what President
Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo conveniently ignored when she promised businessmen
that she would take the Philippines to the “Enchanted Kingdom” of First
World success in 20 years. It is a wonder what kind of education Filipino
children – the country’s future – as they are forced to take their
lessons in school
buildings that should have been condemned long ago.
Salungguhit literally means to
underline; figuratively, to
underscore or highlight.
