Ched to tap universities for Cha-cha campaign

THE Commission on Higher Education will enlist the support of state universities and colleges nationwide to conduct an intensive information campaign to help the youth fully understand Charter change or “Cha-cha”.

The network of state universities in the country would be an effective venue to hold fora and workshops on Charter change, according to Ched officer-in-charge Prospero de Vera III.

“We’re going to mobilize the SUCs for the Charter change. The state universities network is the most logical network to do information dissemination. We’re talking of 112 SUCs of more than 300 campuses. All of these campuses have venues for meetings and forum,” de Vera said.

He said the commission is in talks with former Chief Justice Reynato Puno, chair of the consultative committee tasked by President Duterte to review provisions of the 1987 Constitution and to hold public consultations on the proposed constitutional amendments.

“Because a lot of frustrations on discussions on the proposed shift to federalism is that we only focus on the political side. We must focus as well on the substantial side — how will education look like, how will social work look like, what are the economic realities on the region when we talk about federalism? The once who can provide answers to that are actually the universities in the region and their experts,” de Vera said.

Ched is planning to start the initiative as next month. (pna)
