PHL not ready for federalism

Senatorial candidate Juan Miguel Zubiri said in a press conference in Dumaguete City yesterday that the Philippines is not quite ready for a federal form of government.

Zubiri was in Dumaguete for a brief visit and met with Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria, a close friend and ally.

When asked about his thoughts and stand on the federal government being pushed by Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who is seeking the presidency in May, the Bukidnon candidate said he favors the idea but with reservations.

SU Center of Excellence
in Teacher Education

The Commission on Higher Education has designated Silliman University in Dumaguete City as a Center of Excellence in Teacher Education, the only one in the Negros Island Region.

CoE is the highest distinction granted by CHEd to a university for programs assessed among the country's strongest in the areas of instruction for innovative curriculum and faculty profile, research and publication, extension and linkages, and institutional qualifications, a press release from Silliman said.

The recognition taps higher education institutions in providing capacity-building to other schools in the region.
