‘Dishonesty begins at home’ – values formators


MANILA, Nov. 16, 2014 — Sad to say, but the seed of corruption in public office sometimes, begins to grow at home when parents pressure their children to secure a good reputation and standing in the community, values formators said.

Some as young as teens are pressured by their own elders to plot their way to the top of the class or a paid position in the local elective council, said Education Foundation, Inc. (EFI) president Noami A. David on Tuesday.



The Philippines could be a shining star in the South Pacific, unfortunately, the corruption has held them back. The Federal government has made a good start in cleaning up the bad apples, but it needs to filter down to the local level for real progress and change. I love the way the bishops stand up for what is right.
