Calls in the Phillipines for English in schools

Global Nation says that a workers' group demonstrated to denounce the re-introduction of English as the medium of instruction in schools. Some business groups were calling on the government to re-introduce English in the schools "so that more Filipinos could be hired as call center agents and medical transcribers. "

Seem like some pretty narrow goals for a nationwide change in education policy like that. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
