I'm just thinking that despite that the department of education is getting highest budget since 1987. Our government schools still the lowest in term of standard and facilities. I'm just wondering what if our department of educations is run and funded by privates. Do you think its going to make a difference?

I guess this is all a dream and not going to be reality unless I become a successful businessman. As theirs no way I can sponsor the entire public school in our country. lols. But same time I'm happy that some how I'm dreaming of something good for my country. I just hope that someday my country will be well known again.

theres a huge difference between the tuition cost of a private school and a public school. But if public funds are channeled to private schools then the money would help to lower down the costs.

Hi, for the main reason that it is called "public schools", there's no way that it could be run by the private sectors. Otherwise it will become a "private school". Next, it is the governments main role to provide cheaper eduction system in our country. No matter how low our educational system here, we should push the government to raise its standard. Next, if it will be privatized, there is a big possibility that the cost entail by each student would be higher. It is because no private corporation will run a school without making an income. its all about business and education and a form of business is a high money earner. I may not be agree with the governments project of adding extra years into the curriculum, but I'm hoping that this will do some change in the future.

I did not say owned. I say run by a private sectors. Anyway right now our public schools are under department of education and right now the department executive is Br. Armin Luistro, A Lasallian brother. So in fact he is a private person who is just appointed by the president to be head of department of education. So does it mean its wrong since he is not a public official and he is a private person but he is the head right now of department of educations? Because literally he is also running our public schools. And have you tried community service before? Its our school requirements also that we do community service in public schools even though I'm studying in private school. My point is even though its a public school the private sector is not forbidden to donate chairs or offer assistance or funded and run those public schools. I our department of education head is a private person appointed to be executive. why not we appoint private volunteers as teachers and as principal of the public schools also?
