PH Lowest In Grade 5 Reading, Math Skills. Here’s Why

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!

Harvard Apologizes For Inviting Leni Robredo, Kim Kardashian

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (The Adobo Chronicles, Cambridge Bureau) – It made a mistake not once, but twice — and now Harvard, one of the most prestigious Ivy League institutions in the U.S. and the world has issued a stark apology.

The apology came after the university was criticized for inviting ex-Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo and entertainer Kim Kardashian as lecturers.

Fox News has described the fiasco as “Harvard’s prestige disappearing into thin air.”

Harvard’s apology was addressed to its students, alumni and the world-wide academic community and asked for a second chance in rectifying its blunder.

“We promise this will never happen again,” a university statement said.
