First Day of School

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Was it such a long time ago that I’m among those who are simultaneously dreading and eagerly anticipating the first day of school? It definitely was. It’s been so long that everything seems to have changed.

Being a product of the public school system – from Grade One all the way to graduate school – I can say that my generation of public school graduates can hold our own with graduates from private schools. Not having an expensive education never held us back from what we can do. Now, I look at the sorry plight of school children in public schools and it saddens me how disadvantaged they are compared to the more privileged ones in the country. Those who can only rely on a good education to better themselves are the very ones who are deprived of what they most need.

I had to walked on muddy streets in my Haviana like footwear for over a kilometer to go to school. Then I had to buy a graduate degree so I could make a decent living.

Do feel sad for me? :)
