Youth Pulse #2: Should the SK be abolished?

November 3, 2008

The Sangguniang Kabataan (Youth Council of the Philippines) was ideally created to facilitate young people’s participation in actual, real-world governance. However, over the past few years, SK units had been plagued with severe criticisms due to their apparent inefficiency in performing their functions and their incapacity to surpass traditional politics. To resolve  this problem, two general proposals are filed in Congress at present: one to ABOLISH the SK and another to REFORM it. Which side are you on?

*This poll closes on Sunday, 9 November 2008*
