Student group asks Pope to stand against high cost of education, especially in PH Catholic schools

An alliance of student organizations and education advocates called on Pope Francis Wednesday to also intervene in the issue of education, particularly the spiraling matriculation rates in Catholic colleges and universities in the Philippines.

Quick facts: Ampatuan Massacre

Nakikiisa ang National Union of Student of the Philippines (NUSP),  ang pinakamalaki at pinakamalawak na alyansa ng mga konseho ng mga mag-aaral at pederasyon sa bansa, sa paghahanap ng hustisya para sa 58 biktima ng pamamaslang sa Maguindanao,  32 mula rito ay mga mamamahayag. Tila patuloy na pinalalabo ng administrasyong Aquino ang pagsipat ng hustisya para sa mga biktima ng pamamaslang sa Maguindanao.
