An Act converting the San Antonio High School in Barangay San Antonio, Municipality of Milaor, Province of Camarines Sur into a National High School to be known as San Antonio National High School.
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 San Antonio High School into the San Antonio
National High School with the end view of promoting quality education as envisioned
by the Constitution as the Municipality of Milaor 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.
