Magna Carta of the Out-of-School Youth: Senator Joel Villanueva, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Youth, presented before the plenary on Wednesday Senate Bill No. 1650 under Committee Report No. 223 or the Magna Carta of the Out-of-School Youth which aims to provide all children and youth expanded government assistance to all types of education, Alternative Learning System, and most especially, tech-voc training. "We will speak up for the rights of our OSYs because they are the most vulnerable in our society. And if we want them to be truly “fair hope of the motherland”, then let us empower them and shield them from the harm of ignorance and lack of education,” Villanueva said.
