The start of another school year is almost upon us and we all know how hectic this period can be. For the parents, it’s time to worry about enrollment, school supplies and uniform. For the schools, it’s time to repair leaking roofs, repaint tarnished tables and chairs, clean the grounds, buy office and classroom equipment and prepare a mountain of paperwork for the enrollment of the students. As a graduating law student myself, I fully empathize with the parents and the school administration. And it is for this reason that we the stakeholders are here today- representatives from the government, the school and private sector-to share our time, effort and resources in making Brigada Eskwela 2014 a successful endeavor. It is at this time when the children need all of us to pull ourselves together in order to make their school experience and meaningful, happy and productive. Robert Hutchins says that the object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives, and I would like to add that this could be best achieved if they are provided with the proper facilities and instruments of learning.
