Student body divided on STFAP anew
Three months ater thesuicide o a UP Manilareshman allegedlydue to tuition woes,campaigns on reorm-ing and scrapping theSocialized Tuition andFinancial AssistanceProgram (STFAP) haveonce again boomedwith the opening o theschool year.The Alyansa ng Mag-aaral para sa Panli-punang Katuwiran atKaunlaran (ALYANSA)pushes or 13 reormsin the implementa-tion o the said tui-tion ee scheme. Thisincludes the determi-nation o a student’sbracket according toamily consumptioninstead o income andallowing installationor late payments.UP President AlredoPascual had previ-ously proposed thosetwo reorms ollowingKristel Tejada’s suicide,but they were not ap-proved by the Board oRegents, the highestpolicy-making body othe university.The ALYANSA-proposed reormsalso include the pro-hibition o deaultbracket assignments.“ALYANSA believesthat those who can payshould pay, and thosewho cannot should besubsidized,” said ALY-ANSA’s Vice-Chairper-son or MembershipAlea Carpio.But or the StudentAlliance or the Ad-vancement o Demo-cratic Rights in UP(STAND UP), reorm-ing the STFAP wouldbring no change to thecurrent system. Thegroup instead cam-not been repealed or suspended,”she added.President Pascual said he al-ready passed a memorandumthat allows students to apply or100% tuition loan.He also ordered reviews o Arti-cles 330, 430, and 431 o the UPSystem Code, including the STFAP.There is no reason to suspendall the policies because they allhave existed even beore the inci-dent, he stated.Expressing its disappoint-ment, the Justice For Kristel (JFK)movement cited the policy state-ment o the UP Board o Regentswhich reads: “No qualifed UPstudent shall be denied accessto education due tofnancial incapacity.”“It ollows that the anti-studentprovisions o the UP Code mustbe revoked and replaced par-ticularly Articles 330, 430, and431,” JFK said in a statementreleased online.The movement continues tocall or the revoking o the currentcontents o the articles. It has alsoproposed amendments or a airand accessible education.
