I'm so tired of hearing the people and the news making comments about the suicide incident of Kristel Tejada. Come on, people are making such a big deal about it. Yes, it was shocking and the UP education has indeed become expensive but do you really have to blame UP? I'm not defending my alma mater or whatever but blaming UP because of her death is just wrong. IT IS NOT the school's fault she committed suicide. Each and everyone of us are in control of our own actions even if we cannot control others. Some students even suffer a graver fate than hers. But do you see these students killing themselves one by one? No.
I just hope that this incident will really get some action from UP to revise the STFAP. It's sad that a tragedy had to occur before necessary revisions were done.
Plus, a greater budget for education would definitely help these supposedly 'iskolars ng bayan'.
