For parents like me, this matrix by GMA News Online is a very good rough guide on the cost of college education at major universities in Metro Manila. Kurt, our eldest son, is an incoming Journalism student at the University of Santo Tomas, and that’s going to cost about PHP 50,000 per term or PHP 100,000 per year (tuition fee increase is of course to be expected, but as they always say it will be minimal), which is way too high if you compare it to the total cost of around PHP 5,000 that covered my 4-year management degree at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.

Oh headache, these numbers.
