Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chairperson Patricia Licuanan announced on Friday that state universities and colleges in the Philippines will no longer collect tuition fees after the approval of the CHED's P10-billion budget for 2017.
So far, this is one of the greatest news for some Filipinos this 2016. But who should be given credit? How did our honorable government officials came up to this decision to finally remove the tuition fee from students' expenses?

"May higit P8 bilyon na dagdag para sa libreng tuition fee ng 'poor but deserving' students. Ang P8.3 bilyon na pork, inilipat sa State Colleges and Universities mula sa budget ng DPWH para sa 2017," said Senator Ping Lacson.
He added, "Walang kinalaman dito ang mga bill sa Senado tungkol sa pag-alis ng tuition sa SUCs."
More than P8 billion will go to free tuition in all SUCs, and bigger chalk and eraser allowances for public school teachers in 2017 (if President Duterte does not veto the Senate's realignment).
