3-month-old, 3-year-old perish in noon blaze
Kimberly Llorga, 27, left for work so she could save for her son’s birthday on Oct. 5, but there won’t be any celebration as three-year-old Terrence John and three-month-old Bryle Cedric were trapped and killed in a noon blaze at Sitio Hillside in Barangay Talamban at noon yesterday.
Kato si Terrence sweet kaayo to na bata. Suod kaayo na sa akong mama. Ang katapusang nasulti niya nako kay, ‘Ma, ig-birthday nako dad-i ko’g pizza ha. Wa ko ga-expect nga ing-ani ang mahitabo…Nagkurog ko didto sa akong trabahoan kay akong gihuna-huna ang akong mga anak. Niulo ko diritso aron ma-secure ilang safet ba. Wa na ko’y naabtan. Pagmahay nako wa nako na-save akong anak. Wa nako sila masalbar. Kimberly Llorga.
Private schools to lose P150 billion due to K12
The Catholic Education Association of the Philippines says its members will lose more than P18 billion per year–or P150 billion in eight years–due to the implementation of the K to 12 program. The losses are due to the absence of the first-year college enrollees this year and next year. In turn, there would be no sophomores in the succeeding years, and no juniors in the year after that. The first graduates of the K12 program will be in college in 2019, a year where universities will have no juniors and senior students in college.
We are ready for the challenges. I just down’t know how long we can survive given the limited support given by the government. Atty. Joseph Noel Estrada, CEAP legal counsel.
