MANILA, Philippines – Responding to the need for avenues where the youth can discuss budgetary refoms in education, a three-day congregation of student leaders will be held from March 7 to 9 at the College of Mass Communication of the University of the Philippines Diliman.
The first ever National Congress of College Councils (NCCC), with the theme – “United Vision Towards Budgetary Reforms in Education: Perspectives from the Youth Sector” – will serve as a venue for a united call for reforms in the education sector and apply students’ academic knowledge in discussing other related issues.
The event features 5 plenary sessions discussing relevant topics that will equip student leaders with knowledge on the current situation of the Philippine education system. Interactive discussions will be given by KABATAAN Partylist Rep Terry Ridon and the former National Treasurer Liling Briones.
Aside from the sessions, the Paper Conference – considered as the core of the NCCC – will also be held to highlight topics such as corruption, employment, K+12, the Roadmap for Public Higher Education Reform, privatization, the misuse of PDAF, government spending and the influence of foreign-guided policies.
Student leaders from student councils and organizations nationwide are encouraged to participate in the event.
