Congresswoman Rida Robes fights for alternative learning system
San Jose del Monte Representative Rida Robes has drawn out her glasses.
The congresswoman means serious business in her smart casual outfit and gold-rimmed eyeglasses. With the Committee on Basic Education and Culture, she was present at the deliberation on the bills institutionalizing the Alternative Learning Sytem (ALS) in the Basic Education. Well, she should be. She was the principal author of House Bill No. 4392, which is an act seeking to institutionalize ALS in the basic education for underprivileged communities including out-of-school children, youth and adults, persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples, and other marginalized sectors of society. The congresswoman is fighting that this project be appropriated funds for.
Education is a basic right and economic status should not hinder anyone from studying. We support you, Congresswoman Robes!
