Pantawid aid, scholarship

/ 07:36 AM March 17, 2013

THE government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) shouldn’t only be limited to cash aid to poor families but should include  full scholarship for college assistance for at least one member of each family-beneficiary.

Senator Loren Legarda made this call after a 16-year-old University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman student killed herself when she wasn’t allowed to take her exams because she couldn’t pay her  tuition.

Legarda, a UP graduate, also urged the the school to review and revise the UP enrolment policy so poor students could continue attending their classes despite the delay of tuition payment.

“Kailangang i-review at hindi na dapat gawin iyong No Enrolment kapag hindi nakapagbayad, dapat pabayaan nila ang mga estudyante na maka-pag exam at maka attend ng klase maski late ang pagbayad dahil hindi dapat maapiktuhan ang pag-aaral ng bata sa kanyang kahirapan dahil walang trabaho ang maguilang or kulang ang kinikita”, Legarda said in an interview over dyLA.
