The “poorest” of the poor amongst authorities students should be prioritized within the implementation of the free tuition regulation, Sen. Sonny Angara stated lately.

Angara earlier lauded President Rodrigo Duterte for signing into regulation the landmark free tertiary training measure or Republic Act 10931 which is able to profit students in state universities and faculties (SUCs), native universities and faculties (LUCs), and state-run technical-vocational (tech-voc) establishments.

“Pero, may pakiusap tayo sa gobyerno–sana sa batas na ito, prayoridad pa rin ang pinakamahirap na estudyante,” he stated in his Bulgar column, “Agarang Solusyon.”

“Sila kasi ang sentro ng batas na ito at sana may mga higit pang suporta para sa kanila,” stated Angara, amid observations that some students in SUCs come from wealthy households.

He added, “Kahit kasi libre na ang matrikula at miscellaneous fees sa SUCs, dapat ay may nakalaan pa ring higit na ayuda ang pamahalaan para sa ating mga pinakamaralitang estudyante na nagsusumikap makapag-aral at makatapos para maiahon ang kanilang pamilya mula sa kahirapan.”

Under RA 10931, beneficiaries will likely be given e-book allowance, college provides, fare allowance, room and board allowance and different college bills.

“Kuwalipikado rito ang mga mag-aaral na ang mga magulang ay kumikita lamang ng P300,000 pababa sa isang taon,” Angara stated.
