Good News… At last… But…

ZTE scandal… Glorieta 2 bombing… Batasan bombing… any good news? At last, as I turn the pages of Philippine Star (Saturday), an article by Eva Visperas shed light to my day.

Thirty inmates were given a chance to finish a productive life in prison with President Gloria Arroyo’s Ladderized Education Program. The program, first in the country in the region of Ilocos, is in collaboration with Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Lyceum Northwestern University (LNU) and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Dagupan. The inmates are enrolled in Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT).

Isn’t this a good news, people?

However, many (if not all) business owners are afraid to employ ex-convicts. So, will they have a good future? (Just asking) This remains to be seen.
