GMA gov’t hit for depriving kids of basic education


01/24/2010

An opposition leader has scored the Arroyo administration’s neglect of education, saying the latest United Nations (UN) report puts Philippine education behind Tanzania and Zambia.

Makati Mayor and United Opposition (UNO) vice presidential candidate Jejomar Binay, in a statement yesterday, said the UN’s Global Monitoring Report (GMR) is a damning indictment of President Arroyo’s failure to provide universal education, particularly to children belonging to the marginalized sectors.

The UN report castigated the “absence of a decisive political leadership” in the Philippines for the deterioration of education, which it said now lags behind Tanzania and Zambia. Both countries have incomes that are only one-fourth of the Philippines’ income.... MORE

Evidently, there is a lot of pressure, via propaganda, from so-called civil socialite lawyers and “constitutionalists” being applied on the Supreme Court (SC) and the Judicial Bar and Council (JBC) not to have Gloria Arroyo appoint the next chief justice (CJ).

The warnings are varied: Gloria, as well as her appointed CJ can be impeached; the new CJ will not be recognized; there will be a constitutional crisis; the SC can, on its own, rule that she cannot appoint a new CJ and yet another one: Lawyers will take to the streets if Gloria appoints the replacement of SC CJ Puno.....

So many were duped into thinking that Noynoy would bring change. The proof that the traditional politician (trapo) blood is all over Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino’s system was his promise before businessmen who are all members of the Yellow Brigade under the Makati Business Club that in an Aquino administration, no new taxes will be imposed nor will tax rates be increased.

If that is not a pure trapo promise, nothing is. Aquino was hoping to recover lost ground in his past few public sessions where.... MORE

When a consistent frontrunner in the surveys suddenly slams the results of the latest SWS survey that shows his points to be slipping while his opponents are catching up, you can be sure there has been some sort of manipulation that went with that frontrunner’s surveys. Perhaps Sen. Noynoy Aquino knows how he got his astronomical numbers in the previous surveys and how the unbelievably low numbers that the rest of the presidential candidates got were arrived at.

The yawning gap in qualifications and performance between Noynoy and the rest of the presidential aspirants should ..... MORE
