Free College Education Bill Could Be Duterte's Big Announcement in 2nd SONA

 Senator Sonny Angara said in July that President Rodrigo Duterte would sign a free college education bill on or before his second national expedition (SONA).

"It could be his biggest and best announcement for us all that day," Angara said, referring to Duterte's SONA on July 24th.

The Senate recently said that the "universal approach to quality higher education", approved and ratified by congressional leaders, would allow poor students to go to college for free.

“With this law, even the financially-incapable Filipino families can give their children college education without worrying how to pay for it because it will be for free,” he said.

Students are entitled to a fare discount only during schooldays.

He said the student fare discount bill would include train fare, airplane fare and fare.
