It was in 2010 when the administration of the University of the Philippines Los Banos proposed to turn the regular general education classes (which is usually composed of 15-20 students) into a large class. They insisted that larger classes increase the quality of education and is proven by Western universities. To discuss topics in detail, these general education subjects will now have recitation classes. This may sound promising but on the larger scale, this is the university’s attempt to answer the problems that came up with the recent subsidy cuts for the state universities and colleges. Instead of demanding for greater budget from the government, the university administration will instead ask the students to pay for higher matriculation fees, yet not providing the quality education they deserve.
