Angara urges LGUs: Take the lead in providing quality education
Reelectionist Senator Sonny Angara urges local government units (LGUs) to allot more resources for education to ensure that students in their respective communities will have access to quality public education.
Angara said LGUs should pour in more funds to develop learning institutions that could provide students free and quality public education.
He said LGUs should consider universal education as a wise investment with large potential returns.
The lawmaker said well-educated children are at the heart of healthy, productive and prosperous societies.
Angara said “A good education is the most powerful tool we can give our children to help them escape poverty and lead happier, healthier and productive lives.”
Free public education, from kindergarten to college, is one of Angara’s advocacies.
