EXPLANATORY NOTE

Education is the key that allows people to move up in the world, seek better jobs,

and ultimately succeed fully in life. Education is very important, and no one should

be deprived of it.

The Constitution mandates the State to protect and promote the right of all citizens to

quality education at all levels and to take appropriate steps to make such education

accessible to all.

This bill seeks to convert the Pasacao Municipal High School into the Pasacao

National High School with the end view of promoting quality education as envisioned

by the Constitution as the Municipality of Pasacao does not have sufficient funds to

support the needs of the school and its students. Due to this situation, the school

and its students are currently suffering form lack of facilities, materials and qualified

faculty. There is an urgent need, therefore, to pass the burden to the national

government if only to pursue the constitutional mandate of promoting the right of

citizens to quality education.

In view of the foregoing reasons, the approval of this bill is earnestly sought.

LUIS RAYMUND F. VILLAFUERTE, JR.
