Infographic | Military attacks on Lumad community schools in Mindanao »

Here is an alarming statistic: About 3,000 Lumad children have been denied of their right to education because of the Aquino administration’s counter-insurgency military offensives in Mindanao. And in the center of it all–along with the various units of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, of course–is the Department of Education itself, with its Davao del Norte division leading [...]…

Bakit di mapapaunlad ng K-to-12 ang edukasyon sa Pilipinas »

Kaakibat ng tungkulin ng gobyerno na magbigay ng edukasyon sa mga mamamayan nito ang masigurong napapaunlad ang kalidad ng edukasyong ito batay sa pangangailangan at mithiin ng bansa. Bilang hakbang sa pagpapaunlad ng edukasyon sa Pilipinas, pilit na itinulak ng administrasyong Aquino ang Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 o ang programang K-to-12 na nagpabago [...]…

GMA media workers push back vs contractualization, network harassment »

Behind the glitz and glamour of corporate media is a disturbing labor practice that affects thousands of media workers: contractualization.

Pagbawal sa ina na manganak sa bahay »

Sinasabing nasa hukay ang isang paa ng inang nagdadalantao. Tanungin mo ang sinumang buntis, sasabihin niyang totoo ang kasabihang ito. Pero sa mga maralitang buntis ngayon, tila hindi lang mismong pagdadalantao ang nagbibigay-panganib sa kanya. Ang ilang polisiya ng gobyerno’y tila nagdadala sa kanya sa higit na panganib. Ipagkakait na kasi sa mga maralita ang [...]…

Isang paglalantad o pagsisiwalat. Iyan ang panukala kong pangunahing pagbasa sa viral, kontrobersyal, at probokatibong Facebook status ni Prop.

Syempre, lehitimong karapatan ng mga mang-aawit at personalidad sa social media na sina Jim Paredes at Leah Navarro na maglunsad ng rali laban sa pagtakbong pangulo sa eleksyong 2016 ni Bise-Presidente Jejomar Binay. Hindi ako maka-Binay, pero maraming magandang tanong ang maiisip kaugnay ng raling…
