A netizen narrates how her family, living below the poverty line, still managed to get her a private high school education.

While it had always confused Astee Tagle how her parents afforded the tuition, and other people even questioning the same disparity, Tagle’s father would always reply with “basta, mag-aral ka lang.”

When Tagle went to college, her education was not subsidized. 

Although her tuition was merely Php 500, she admits that there were times when they could not pay it in full.

Having lived through this difficulty, Tagle says that it made her understand why President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Free Education bill into law. Just like her parents, Duterte only wants to ensure that no Filipino is an ignorant.

Even when at some point Tagle was diverted from finishing her education, she managed to go back and even go abroad where the foreign country invested thousands of dollar for her education.

In her full post on Facebook, Tagle said,

"Literal na galing ako sa below poverty line na pamilya. 

Hindi ko alam paano na survive ng magulang ko na mapag aral nila ko sa isang pribadong paaralan.

Hindi rin ako katalinuhan.

Laging kinukwestyon ng kamag anak bakit raw ako doon nag aaral eh di naman kame mayaman.

Isa lang laging sagot ng ama ko sa aken... "Basta, mag-aral ka lang."

Hindi malinaw noon sa akin ano ibig nya sabihin. Pero awa ng dyos wala ako bagsak na grado kahit demoted pa ko noong 4th year.

Sa Free Education na isinabatas ng pangulo, alam ko at nauunawaan ko na ngayon bakit ito pinirmahan ni Digong. Gaya ng mga magulang ko, alam ko gagawen nya ang lahat masiguro lang na wala ng mamamangmang na Pilipino sa susunod na henerasyon.

Hindi ako nakatikim ng scholarship sa sarili nateng bayan, depressing ang college life ko, 500 pesos na tuition na lang hindi ko pa minsan ma produce. Pinili ko ang lansangan upang ipahayag ang aking saloobin sa pag aakalang naroroon ang sagot. Ngunit wala rin pala.

Mas pinili kong talikuran ang lansangan at magbanat ng buto at bumalik sa paaralan.

Sa ibang bansa pa na appreciate ang talento ko kung saan libong dolyar ang ininvest ng gobyerno sa pag aaral ko.

Kung babalikan ko ang nakaraan, masasabi kong, SIYET pede na ko mamatay! Hindi nako mag aalala sa pamilya ko sa Pinas :)
