By Virgilio Sar. Maganes
URDANETA CITY- Pangasinan gubernatorial aspirant Mark O. Cojuangco continuously inspires Pangasinenses that include all sectors-youth, senior citizens, farmers group, women and even professionals, by giving them hope for a better life should he win the gubernatorial post.
Recently, Cojuangco was with a group of teachers whom he lauded for their sacrifices in molding the minds of the youth although their compensations are not that high enough to meet their needs.
He said one of his advocacies to improve the level of education in the province is to institutionalize a career development program for teachers for them to earn masters degree in prestigious universities in the country.
” I want our teachers in Pangasinan to earn their masters degrees in prestigious universities like University of the Philippines, La Salle University, University of Sto. Tomas and Ateneo de Manila University to improve their skills and (increase) their knowledge.This is a way to improve the educational system in Pangasinan. Education is very important not only for the pupils and students. Teachers should also improve themselves for the future of our province,” he said.
Meanwhile, 5th District Kimi S. Cojuangco has looked into the various school classroom needs in the district.
Being the committee chair of basic education, Kimi has lobbied for the repair and construction of new classrooms from the Department of Education (DepEd), Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) and Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
She said the abolition of the priority development assistance fund (PDAF) has not deterred her to bring projects in 5th District.
She lobbied for more than P600 million worth of projects for the district in 2015.
