Tuwid na daan.
This was the path, one year ago, thatBenigno “Noynoy” Aquino III vowedto tread as the 15
th
President of thePhilippines. In his inauguration speech,he said he
would part ways with hispredecessor, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo,whose crooked governance served asthe framework for numerous cases ofcorruption, incompetence,
and humanrighs violaions. Aquino announced ha hisadminisraion would lay is own oundaions,sweeping away he vesiges o heprevious erm.

More han a hird or around 1,300 ohe 3,826 UP College Admission Tes(UPCAT) qualiers in UP Diliman (UPD)did no enrol his academic year, ciingreasons such as proximiy issues, andscholarship grans and lower ees inoher universiies, among ohers.Only 65 percen or 2,502 o heUPCAT passers have enrolled as oJune 30, according o he UPD Oceo he Universiy Regisrar, barely apercen higher han he 2,482 whoenrolled ou o he 3,826 UPCATqualiers las year.However, he reshman enrolmenin UP Diliman has no increased “signicanly” and even ends odecrease, said UP Diliman ChancellorCaesar Saloma.Since he 300 percen uiionand oher ees increase (TFI) in 2007,he number o UPCAT qualiers whoacually ener UP has been decreasinga an average o hree percen.

Inaccessible education
A survey conduced by he Oceo he Universiy Regisrar revealedha an average o ve percen oUPCAT qualiers who did no enrolin UP he pas our academic yearswere ofered scholarships in oheruniversiies. “I is really a mater o havingopions, hindi naman nain mapipigilankung guso nila pumuna sa [ibanguniversiy]...a leas hey coninue ocollege pero sana nga kasing gandang UP educaion ‘yung makukuha nila,” said Saloma.However, hese UPCAT qualiersdid no enrol in UP because o he “unafordable uiion and poor rangeo scholarships” in he universiy, saidConi.Rochelle, an UPCAT passer, availedo an enrance scholarship oferedby he Universiy o Sano Tomas. “Maaas na din kasi ang uiion sa UP[a] mahirap pa naman daw makakuhang [nancial assisance]. Kung uladsana noon na P300 lang [per uni], bakaumuloy ako,” she said.In 2007, he UP adminisraionimplemened increased he hen baseuiion o P300 per uni o P1,000o “cope wih he rapidly increasingmainenance and oher operaingexpenses” 
 
o he Universiy accordingo he 2006 TFI primer issued by heUP adminisraion.
Budget constraints
The universiy’s budgeconsrains lead o “unafordableeducaion, poor range o scholarshipsand even declining compeiiveness oeducaion,” said Coni. “Every year, UP asks he naionalgovernmen or a higher budge... buwha we do receive is proporionallylower han he previous year’s budge,” according o he ToFI primer.In 2006, he universiy spen abouP4.6 billion, 85 percen o which wassubsidized by he governmen. In 2010,he governmen’s share declined o 80percen, subsidizing only P4.6 billiono UP’s P5.5 billion oal budge. Theremaining 20 percen was sourcedrom he universiy’s inernally-generaed income, mosly comingrom uiion ees
(see sidebar 2).
For nex year, he UPadminisraion proposed a P17-billionbudge
(see related article on page5).
 “I is wha we need o run heUniversiy [so] sana makakalahaiman lang ayo,” said Coni. However,in recen years, he Deparmen oBudge and Managemen has onlyapproved 30 o 40 percen o hebudge proposed by he universiy.Meanwhile, he adminisraionshould consider lowering he uiionraes and increasing scholarshipsor sudens o make UP educaionaccessible, said Coni.Bu lowering he uiion raes in UPis no an opion or he adminisraion,said Saloma, explaining ha heUPD adminisraion would raherconcenrae in srenghening heuniversiy’s Socialized Tuiion Feeand Assisance Program (STFAP) oaccommodae more sudens.
Flawed STFAP
The STFAP works as a mechanismo deermining uiion raes where “sudens who can aford [shall] payhe ull cos o heir educaion andsudens who canno [shall] be granedsubsidies,” according o he STFAPprimer issued by he adminisraion.The adminisraion creaed heSTFAP when he base uiion wasadjused rom P40 o P300 in 1989.The rs STFAP was he NumericBrackeing Scheme, classiyingsudens ino nine brackes. Wihhe 300 percen TFI in 2007, heUP adminisraion resrucuredhe program o he ve alphabeicbrackes.The STFAP “ac[ed] as a srain oensure ha ewer sudens will receiveuiion discouns, sipends and oherbenes,” according o a saemenreleased by he sysemwide allianceo suden councils Kaipunan ng mgaSangguniang Mag-aaral sa UP.Since he implemenaion ohe STFAP in 1989, he number osudens graned ree uiion has beendecreasing. In 1991, one in every veundergraduae sudens in Dilimanwas graned ree uiion bu by 2010,he gures decreased o only one inevery 100 sudens.Progressive suden groups havecalled or he scrapping o he STFAPas i only serves as a mechanism orgeneraing more income rom uiion.From 2007 o summer 2009, headminisraion had colleced P500million rom uiion ees bu only spenP25 million or STFAP beneciaries,according o KASAMA sa UP.As he governmen graduallydecrease subsidy o UP, he Universiyis compelled o nd ways o raiseincome like he STFAP and TFI, saidConi. “Clearly, we need higher budgerom he governmen.
