Davao students walk out of classes to protest ‘commercialization’ of education

Feb. 03, 2008

WALK OUT. Students from leading universities–the Ateneo de Davao, the University of Mindanao, the University of the Philippines-Mindanao and the University of Southeastern Philippines (USP)–trooped to the streets on Friday to protest what they refer as “commercialization” of education: the unabated increase of tuition fees both in the private and state universities. The students’ walk-out was staged simultaneously in different parts of Southern Mindanao. (davaotoday.com photos by Barry Ohaylan and Jonald Mahinay)
