Good, quality, updated, and responsive education is still the best service the government can provide to the Filipino people, according to Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr.
Marcos aired this belief as he called on the government to ensure that education is accessible to youth whether they are rich or poor.
“Sa aking palagay, ang pinakamahalagang serbisyo na idinudulot ng pamahalaan sa ating bansa ay ang edukasyon,” he said.
The senator sees a dim future for the Philippines if the Filipino youth will be denied access to education due to poverty.
He also advised parents to exert extra effort to persuade their children to go to school and encourage them to finish their studies so they will have a better chance for a better life.
“Ang edukasyon ay isang pundasyon ng progreso ng ating bansa. Alam naman natin na kung hindi maganda ang pagpapa-aral natin sa ating mga kabataan, ang ating kinabukasan ay lalabo at didilim imbes na lumiwanag at gumanda,” he stressed.
