Philippine Catholic religious bishop welcomes the signing of a law that will concede free training for undergrads in the nation’s state colleges and universities.
The head if the Episcopal Commission on the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant individuals depicted the new law as a “gift” for poor Filipinos, particularly transient specialists.
“Free training is an awesome help to our [migrant workers],” said Bishop Ruperto Santos of Balanga.
Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo commended President Rodrigo Duterte for giving free instruction to understudies, saying “training leads many out of destitution.”
Diocesan Roberto Mallari of Nueva Ecija said many will profit by the law, “which is in reality great” since “contributing on human capital through training is an established command”.
“We trust that it is not only a political choice, that it was painstakingly contemplated by [the government’s] monetary group since this requires reasonable subsidizing”.
The prelate, in any case, said the law may have a suggestion to the enlistment in Catholic schools and colleges and other tuition based schools.
On Aug. 3, Duterte marked into law the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act, a law giving free educational cost to Filipino understudies in 112 state colleges and schools.
