Isko Moreno: Schools should not have political names on display
Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has ordered the removal of the politicians’ names, including his own, in all public primary and secondary schools in Manila. This was announced this morning, Tuesday, July 9, at the Manila City Hall meeting with the City School Board.
“Huwag natin pulitikahin ang ating mga paaralan. Let’s leave politics to politicians, and our educational institutions to academicians,” explained the mayor.
“Walang epal sa pader ng eskwelahan. Walang epal sa mga basketball court, gymnasium na pinagawa ng mga pulitiko sa loob ng eskwelahan. Bawal ang epal. Tigilan na natin ‘yan,” he added.
Even his name should be removed, “Pinatatanggal ko lahat ng pangalan, ultimo ang pangalan ko at pangalan ng mga pulitiko, na nakapintura o nakakabit sa mga eskwelahan.”
“Lahat ng mga naglalagay na pulitiko ng kanilang mga pangalan as if you are immortalizing yourself or as if it is your money, that is not your money. Pera yan ng taumbayan,” he ended.
