Sen. Bam on the resignation of CHED chairperson Patricia Licuanan

Higher education has lost a dependable ally with the resignation of CHED Chairperson Patricia Licuanan.

As former chairman of the Committee on Education, we can attest to her dedication to improve access to quality education as we worked closely to pass the free college law.

We thank Chairperson Licuanan for her immeasurable service to Filipino students and for all her help in crafting the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act.

At the same time, we call on Malacanang to appoint an immediate replacement with the ability and the will to effectively implement this critical reform.

We look forward to working with yet another staunch advocate for quality education in the Philippines.
