The world-renowned philosopher Aristotle once said: “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruits are sweet.” Although finishing school proves to be a difficult behavior, the rewards that come right after are indeed sweet.
However, despite all of the above-mentioned, we can’t really hide the truth that there is more to it than what we know. Most of the time, education still remains a far-fetched dream for other people who are on the outskirts of the social class. Unlike others who have the privilege to go to a prestigious school, there are still many more who can’t even attend one.

Recently, a concerned netizen named Al Jerome Blanco Orocio became an instant trending topic. He shared a striking image on social media that shows the current situation of education in the Philippines.

As seen in the picture, the young student seemingly gave the teacher an apology letter. Stated in the crumpled piece of paper, it said:
“Ma’am pasensiya na po. Wala po akong baon.”
At first, we might think that the written apology letter is just nothing to care about. However, if we try to read it between the lines, we can infer that the student’s excuse for not attending class is due to lack of money.
