STUDENTS in state-run universities and colleges now have more reasons to be mad about the budget cuts imposed by the government on education as no Philippine learning institution made it to the list of the top 400 schools in the world.
In the World University Rankings for 2011-2012 by the Times Higher Education (THE), not a single Philippine school made it to the top 400 list and the top 100 reputable schools in the world.
The report came as another major setback to the country’s higher education system, which is already marred by reports of violence, corruption and huge budget cuts imposed on government-run educational institutions.
THE characterized its rankings as the “world’s largest survey of academic opinion ever undertaken.” It took into account 13 separate performance indicators designed to capture the full range of university activities, from teaching to research and knowledge transfer.
