Education is a basic human right but in the Philippines it remains a privilege of a few. This Sunday, GMA News and Public Affairs examines why the country\u2019s educational system still struggles to make the grade.<br rn\/> <br rn\/>REPORT CARD: Ang Antas ng Edukasyon sa Pilipinas brings together, for the first time, veteran newscaster Mike Enriquez and actor Dingdong Dantes, both of whom share a passion for education. Enriquez was a former university professor and is current chairman of the board of trustees of La Salle Greenhills. Dantes spent his formative years at the Ateneo and has recently put up a foundation that provides education opportunities for disadvantaged students.<br rn\/> <br rn\/>Mike Enriquez, Dingdong Dantes and their team scour the country and discover the many ingenious, and often heart-wrenching, ways Filipinos try to educate themselves. In Manila three siblings, all in first grade, go to class at different times of the day because they share only one pair of shoes. In Babuyan Islands, a single pencil is cut into pieces so more students can write. In Mindanao, they stumble upon Barangay No Read, No Write.<br rn\/> <br rn\/>Despite the difficulties, reforms are possible. Enriquez and Dantes also witness how the desire for knowledge can still trump ignorance.<br rn\/> <br rn\/>Don\u2019t fail to watch REPORT CARD: Ang Antas ng Edukasyon sa Pilipinas this Sunday, July 31, 10.15 pm on GMA 7.
