The Special Program for the Employment of Students or SPES has finally chosen 165 students to work for the different offices in Dumaguete City. The said program is both shared and funded by the Department of Labor (DOLE) and local government of Dumaguete.
The said program is really great. It helps alleviate students’ problem of funding their schooling. Yes poor and deserving students and yet some in the roster aren’t even considered poor – what more being deserving. But anyway, the problem may not be in the screening committee of those students but with the students themselves. Observing some students being assigned to like sweeping at the park area or cleaning the rest rooms, I somehow appreciate some who are dedicated to work. While others – I doubt. For real? 165 Dumaguete City SPES Scholars Up For The Job ?
