Juan Barrameda Escandor, “Johnny / Jerry”, was born on November 14, 1941 in Gubat, Sorsogon. Johnny entered the University of the Philippines under the BS Pre-Med program, and juggled his time for academics and athletics, being a member of the State University's Track and Field Varsity team. Encouraged by her mother and relatives, Johnny continued continued his studies in the UP College of Medicine despite the hardships he had to face. To finance his education, his father had to gradually sell small parcels of his land. Johnny, for his part, worked as a waiter at the UP Drive-In and later as a clerk at the Registrar’s Office for additional income.

Nevertheless, he slowly but surely made his way through medical school, and he did it successfully. Johnny was a dedicated and well-rounded student, maintaining high academic standards. As a fourth year student, he even earned the first prize award in an annual undergraduate research contest sponsored by the Manila Medical Society for co-publishing a paper on “The Effects of Antihistamines on Gastric Motility”. He later earned his coveted MD degree in 1969. Johnny, unlike many of the youth of his time, sought answers to many socio-political questions. As early as his medical school years, Johnny had already engaged in activities and groups oriented towards social and national awareness; while the rest of the class worried about grades and other things that preoccupy the average student, Johnny had already decided that you cannot separate medicine from politics. He was a founding member of the Kabataang Makabayan in 1964. In 1969, he helped organize the Sorsogon Progressive Movement and in 1970, the Progresibong Kilusang Medikal - PGH Chapter.

hello! yung 40 minutes ay kulang sa discussion and activity ng HR sa mga bata. dagdag pa na malawak ang saklaw ng HR. if elementary school kids ang tuturuan, why not turuan sila ng kanilang karapatan as reference ang UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). yung 54 articles nya divided naman into 4 categories,e (survival, protection, development, participation). sa ganyan, madaling ipaliwanag sa mga bata ang kanilang mga karapatan.

pwedeng maglaan ng isang araw na karapatan lang ang ituturo.. pwede kaya yun sa mga public schools natin?
