I Say It Again
I said it before, I say it again: we are not only backward as a people, we are also retarded as a nation. Look how we all get excited over the prospect of cleaning up the Pasig river, cleaning up Laguna de Bay, cleaning up Manila Bay, indeed, cleaning up our dirty streets and polluted highways. But we have yet to get excited, even for a moment, in how we must first and foremost clean up the mess off our minds and hearts as the only Christian country in Asia. Especially as to where the mess originally come from. They are the results, if not the products of our messy and corrupt system of education!
Indeed, our schools, colleges, and universities are commercial enterprises in business to make money for themselves. They are not educational institutions responsible to improve our sense of self-respect as a people and to improve our sense of dignity as a nation. Poch Suzara
