ASEAN Partylist Wants At Least One Professional For Each Family

Image
Personally I would really appreciate candidates that gives value to education above all priorities. Because it is still education that will form the public of more informed and skilled citizens of the country. Despite our country has one of the highest literacy rate in the world, it fails largely on subjects like science and math. There is also a growing number of high school graduates that are not able to continue with college education.
There are a lot of factors, but the government is not directing the right policies that will help in creating more professionals and skilled workers for the growing economy. The ASEAN Party list comes forward to the cause of creating more opportunities for students to pursue their tertiary education through various policies they would like to present to congress.
