MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Is it any wonder that Filipino Grade 5 students have among the lowest reading and math skills in all of Southeast Asia? Just look at their role models: Congress and former Vice President Leni Robredo.
As for reading comprehension, Congress needs a 3rd and final reading before it is able to approve a bill.
For math? Well, when you have a Vice President who says 4 x 40 = 1,600, it blurs the minds of children.
Is there also a survey on school children’s knowledge in history? Robredo could also be a good role model for saying World War II was still raging in 1947.
Current Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte had better go to work to reverse the country’s embarrassing reputation!
