instead of upgrading the educational system, they are willing to downgrade to make a compromise.
hello! only UP, DLSU, UST and ateneo are the recognized univeristies abroad, if one is not a grad of any of the said univeristies then the tertiary degree is no better than a vocational/technical certificate/diploma.
only a few high school grads pass the said univerities and if in case aspirants don't pass, the blame is placed on the admission's test i.e. UPCAT.
the DepEd should put a stop to diploma mills and do away with it's current policy. if a student can't hack a grade above 75% then it only shows that tertiary education shouldn't be the next step. high school grades are indicative of an individual's intellectual capability and ability to pass. the individual should go for vocational training (mechanic, dressmaking, hairdressing etc) instead rather than waste away money on a series of course shifting and end up without a degree at all.
