The bad news is, 126 schools in Metro Manila will increase tuition fees they will collect for school year 2012-2013 by 6% to 10%. The list, which the Department of Education released recently, includes La Salle Greenhills, ST. Theresas College, Philippine Womens University, Miriam College, Ateneo de Manila University, University of Sto. Tomas, ST. paul College, among others. The good news is, the number os schools implementing tuition fee hikes decreased from 136 in 2011. An education official explained that private schools are free to increase fees but understands market dynamics, since making education unaffordable tends to reduce enrollment.
