Young workers call for stop to “no late payment” policy in UP Manila


PRESS RELEASE
16 March 2013

The militant Partido ng Manggagawa (PM) mourned the death of UP Manila student Kristel Tejada and called for a stop to the controversial “no late payment” policy.  The Manila Collegian, UP Manila school paper reported that Tejada committed suicide allegedly due to financial constraints.  Since last year, UP Manila has been implementing the “no late payment” and “forced LOA” policies that are being criticized by PM as anti-student and anti-poor.

“The no late payment and forced LOA policies kill. Tejeda’s suicide is both sad and enraging.  UP is a public university being subsidized by the government for the education of the country’s future leaders.  Over the years, it has been crafting and implementing policies that have made it difficult for poor but deserving students to enter the university, including the STFAP.  Dati kung matalino ka, you deserve to be an ‘Iskolar ng Bayan,’ ngayon kailangan you have to have money, too.  That is not a problem to those who can afford UP education, but how about poor students?” said Judy Ann Miranda, PM secretary-general and a former UP Manila student leader.

“’Education is a right, not a privilege.’  The death of Tejda should not be in vain..  Rather, it should lead to reforms that would address discrimination against poor students in the premier public university because of inability to pay tuition fees.  This is not for UP alone but so with the rest of state colleges and universities,” Miranda added.

PM-Kabataan is advocating a set of demands called “Apat na Dapat” as a challenge to candidates in the elections and an increase in the budget for education is among them.

I do not drop a lot of responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Young workers call for stop to "no late payment" policy in UP Manila".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it look like some of these remarks look as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Usually it is a result of the fire communicated in
the article I looked at. And on this post "Young workers call for stop to "no late payment" policy in UP Manila".

I was actually moved enough to post a comment ;)

trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Thanks!
