Marilou Mondero: Why do those people receive assistance from the government like EEC for HS students and the government also has a counterpart in k-12 and they pay taxes. It’s their business, they should pay tax. The boy from their school. D humble better than govt schools. Because they are exempt from tax. The law should be changed and they should be taxed. That’s their business.
AJ Sanchez: Right. The tuition fees in Catholic schools are very expensive, then the salaries of the teachers are low and the others are overworked because the priests and nuns who run the schools are old, so they all work.
Wilhelm Marquez: Right. Tuitions are expensive and they are exempted from tax. So when Digong said that Catholic schools will also pay the tax, they immediately calmed down
Cesar Sotelo: they can also pay taxes, because most catholic schools since there is a separation of church and state, they don’t pay taxes properly but they are the ones who interfere
Marvin Perfas: Right, this is a big point to talk about, Director, finally someone has a voice that spoke about it.
Dudu Ignacio: Everything has a fee, baptism, communion, marriage, mass for the soul, the dead, and many more, which are not mentioned in the bible with a fee.
