Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! - Jovy­lene B. Cortez --oo0oo--

Ed­u­ca­tion is one of the most im­por­tant fac­tors in life that needs to be pur­sued by ev­ery in­di­vid­ual; it is through ed­u­ca­tion where we can achieve many good things in life. Higher level of ed­u­ca­tion helps peo­ple in earn­ing so­cial and fam­ily re­spect and unique recog­ni­tion. It is vi­tal for one’s so­cial and aca­demic well- be­ing. It is a survival tool to im­prove our­selves and per­form bet­ter in the so­ci­ety.

Ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion is a right of ev­ery in­di­vid­ual. This level aims to el­e­vate the ca­pac­ity and high think­ing abil­ity of ev­ery Filipino that will en­able them to con­trib­ute pri­mar­ily in gen­eral to the eco­nomic growth of our coun­try. Hence, the com­pet­i­tive skills of ev­ery in­di­vid­ual would be a legacy to all gen­er­a­tions for it will sus­tain the amended rules and poli­cies pre­pared.

REPUB­LIC ACT No. 10931 known as the "Universal Ac­cess to Qual­ity Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion Act”, seeks to pro­tect and pro­mote the rights of all stu­dents to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion at all lev­els. With this law, free ed­u­ca­tion is in our hands. It means more op­por­tu­ni­ties that we can grab and more dreams that can be granted. Free ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion is a highly ben­e­fi­cial most es­pe­cially for those less for­tu­nate in­di­vid­ual who can­not af­ford to pur­sue higher ed­u­ca­tion but de­serv­ing, in­tel­li­gent and ca­pa­ble for ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion.
