"Why go against the gov't that gives you free education?

The government has been at the forefront of providing education to all its citizens.

A few years back under the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte he signed a law providing for a college free education in all government State universities and colleges.

With all the destabilization plots being cooked up to oust the sitting President in Malacanang, some prominent government schools have been identified by the military and police authorities are who “involved” in protests against the government.

"In state universities, you are given free education by the government. And yet, hindi ka pa naka-graduate, you are already going against the same government that gives you free education," Director General Oscar Albayalde said in a media briefing.
"'Yung mga nag-aaral sa mga state universities, these are considered the cream of the crop. They should be the hope of the land," Albayalde added.
Brig. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr., the military's assistant deputy chief of staff for operations, has divulged to the public that the Communist Party of the Philippines-New Peoples‘s Army (CPP-NPA) has been actively recruiting members in 18-Manila based universities through screenngs of martial law films.

He cited the following institutions: Adamson University, Ateneo de Manila, Caloocan City College, Earist-Eulogio Amang Rodriguez, Emilio Aguinaldo College, De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, Lyceum College, Philippine Normal University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, San Beda College, University of the East (Recto and Caloocan), University of Makati, University of Manila, University of the Philippines (Manila and Diliman), and the University of Santo Tomas.
The PNP Chief was emphatic but firm when he said teachers/professors should educate students, not only on lessons, but what is good for our country.

We are trying to save generations and yet ganun ang tinuturo sa estudyante. Huwag po sana nating lasunin ang isipan ng mga kabataan. Ang mga teachers, we are considered the second parents of our children. So let's teach them and educate them what is right and what is good for the nation — not only for your school," Albayalde said.
For his part Parlade said this ”notorious for school activism” is projecting President Duterte as an authoritarian like former President Ferdinand Marcos.All of these activities are geared for the ouster plot against the President codenamed “Red October.”

The schools mentioned are "widely known to have been used as fora for communist recruitment," while some universities included in the list are subject to continuing verification, the military official said.

The PNP Chief has reached out to the heads of the universities to have a “direct intervention” on the matter.

No Curtailment of Academic Freedom

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque,  clarified that there is no order coming form Malacanang to curtail academic freedom following the plan to coordinate with the universities by the military and police.

"We have no doubt that none of the schools are openly supportive of such initiatives (Red October). There was no order to curtail economic freedom. There was no order to curtail freedom of expression," Roque said in a media briefing in Malacanang.
