Solon promises more investment on education this year

by Oliver T. Baccay

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Jan. 6 (PIA) –- Cagayan 3rd district Cong. Randolph S. Ting has promised to invest more on education this year to to achieve quality education and uplift participation rate of students.

Ting said it has been observed that participation rate of students from the province has been decreasing as compared to other areas wherein education is given more attention by some government officials and sectors.

In his accomplishment report, Ting said, he had allotted P10 million for scholarship grants of poor but deserving students who are pursuing tertiary education in different colleges and universities as well as in the technical schools.

Other than this, he had also given P7 million to Cagayan State University for other operational expenses which will help boost the educational quality for their students.

“We also assisted several schools, elementary and high school, in building their classrooms and other facilities because we can see that the education department cannot really provide all of the needs of the students,” Ting said.

He further mentioned that for this year, he will propose for the establishment of more computer and science laboratories, as well as electronic libraries in remote areas to cope with the latest technologies as well as equip the teachers and the students with the new trend of teaching and learning.

He emphasized that he had noticed in the barrio schools that they do not have computer units, no libraries and still using old concept of teaching, which he believes contributes to the quality of education of students.

The congressman also urged other local official to support the schools to acquire their needs as it is the best investment for national development because he believes that quality education will produce quality graduates who will be delivering services for the country. (TCB/OTB/PIA-2)
