We authored the Universal Kindergarten act 8 years ago as Congressman for Aurora Province 👍🏽👦🏼the late Congressman Sonny Escudero(father of senChiz) was the sponsor and my dad was Senate sponsor along w Sens Recto n others. Many entrants into grade 1 were unprepared and failed repeatedly. The problem then was providing access to education at all levels; government has succeeded in providing access now it must focus on the QUALITY of education as shown by poor test scores and rankings. Having said that the Global Talent Competitiveness Index ranked us highest among lower middle income countries. There is hope #pagasa #alagangAngara #educationforall #greatequalizer #edukasyonangsolusyon #angarangkinabukasanpagmaypinagaralan #universalkindergarten #RA10157 #basiceducation #empoweringpeople #nextgen
