FREE EDUCATION FOR ALL
ROBERT DAVID PEREZ
As a public school teacher, the significance of quality teaching for quality education cannot be undervalued. It is everyone’s responsibility to help the needy, poor, destitute and those underprivileged. The good thing is this duty can be received through public education with its goal to have free education for all.
Presently, teachers in all levels are appropriately trained and qualified. Professional development through seminars and forums, and high quality continuous learning is accessed in order to ensure that teachers are wellequipped when they teach their students. These opportunities are given by public authorities with no cost to public school teachers. Aside from that these tools are up to par with the fast-changing society of technology we have today.
Though there are several obstacles that prevent quality education for all, notably the lack of infrastructure and resources, illiteracy rate for women which is higher than that of men, and shortage of teachers – free quality basic education is one of the best solutions to fight these issues. Free quality basic education is essential for lifelong learning, in order for people to develop sufficient skills to contribute positively in the society.
Now, with the progressive changes in the public schools, everyone can gain knowledge and have a brighter future.
