PH Universities Alarming Rank Drop
The latest QS World University Rankings has been released. Cambridge University, Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) were the top three schools that topped the listing.

What's alarming is that none of the Universities in the Philippines made it to the 300 list. Prominent universities like University of the Philippines only ranked 332 from 2010's 314th rank. Ateneo de Manila University followed with 360 from 307th. Third place is De La Salle University, which is in the 551-600 bracket from the 451-500 bracket in 2010. University of Santo Tomas was the last which belongs to the 601+ bracket.

It's just sad that in 2009 ranking at least two universities made it to the list including Ateneo de Manila University at 234 and University of the Philippines at 262.

It's a known fact that the education quality in the Philippines has been degrading year-to-year. I hope the Philippine government will do something about this. Increase the Education budget and train the teachers! Filipinos deserve quality education too.
