Educ alliance slams CHED for being stampad of tuition increase: “Eight months of non-response is eight months of negligence”

The Rise for Education (R4E) Alliance denounces the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for clearly baring out its position as pro-commercialization and nothing but a stampad for tuition and other school fees increases. After eight long months, CHED finally submitted a long overdue but anemic response to the tuition and other fee increase (TOFI ) complaints that were filed by student leaders from the National University, De La Salle Araneta University, Far Eastern University, FEATI University, San Beda College Manila and University of Manila. A copy of the Commission’s anemic response was only received by the Office of Kabataan Partylist…

vaw

The National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) denounces the rape of another University of the Philippines – Los Baños student last October 15. The rape of the 17-year old UPLB student is disheartening and enraging, most especially that the rape and slay of another UPLB student Given Grace Cebanico happened in October three years ago. Rape and other forms of violence against women, including students, are alarming and symptomatic of the how Philippine society views and treats women. The Student Union is alarmed at the continued violence against students. Gender-based violence such as rape has been a recurrent…

A Bad Case of HolDAPers: BS Aquino and Abad should know the meaning of respect and decency over DAP and corrupt practices

  “It is plain farcical for Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Butch Abad, the architect of the illegal Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), and for the Palace to demand respect and decency from the UP student, faculty and staff protesters that, according to the point of view of the ruling order, have ‘heckled’ Abad. It is safe to say that  BS Aquino, Abad and the other yellow henchmen have not even a tinge of guilt and remorse as they continue to defend DAP and the rampant corruption in the government,” opens Ms. Sarah Elago, National Union of Students of…

In terms of education, it is undeniable that we still have a long way to go….

Numbers Game: Student leaders denounce 54 congressmen’s shooting down of impeachment complaints vs. Aquino

“We’ve been expecting this from Aquino’s allies in Congress. The Committee on Justice, dominated by yellow minions, hastily shot down the three impeachment complaints sponsored by the Makabayan bloc of progressive partylists. Not only does this show that the said committee is a lapdog of Aquino, but it has denigrated itself as the Committee of Injustice. Sadly, this is how the so-called democratic system of Aquino works,” stresses Ms.  Sarah Elago, Convenor Youth Act Now and National President of the National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP). “Right from the onset, we did not have illusions that this may…

NUSP hits CHED for Betraying Students by Once Again “Legalizing” Collection of Development Fee in SUCs

The fight against the illegal development fee is not yet over. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED), through its July 7, 2014 “Clarificatory Statement on the Matter of Development Fees and Conditions for Its Implementation by the Governing Boards of State Universities and Colleges,” has once again betrayed the students and youth and has proven that it protects the interests not of the students but of the moneymakers. The clarificatory statement (1) has legalized starting AY 2014-2015 the collection of any development fees in state universities and colleges (SUCs) as long as it is for fiduciary purposes, and (2) has…
