Why don't the people of the Philippines speak spanish?

So I’ve done a little research and am so confused why they don’t still speak spanish. They were a colony of Spain for about as long as Mexico was (300 years) but mexicans still speak spanish. And why in the heck is english an official language?
Also do they plan on making spanish their official language again (like it was once). Are they doing anything about it?
