Latest News Philippines: DepEd suspends district supervisor –

THE Department of Education (DepEd) has ordered a 90-day preventive suspension for a district supervisor for collecting Php15 each from pupils of four elementary schools in Malabon City as payment for their test papers during school year 2010-2011.

In a three-page order, Director Luz Almeda of DepEd-National Capital Region said Malabon District 1 Supervisor Joven Ablola was formally charged pursuant to Section 9 of the Revised Rules of Procedures of the Department of Education in administrative cases for alleged grave misconduct.

The case stemmed from Ablola’s memorandum order that he issued to principals of  Dampalit Elementary School, Santulan Elementary School, Panghulo Elementary School and Malabon Elementary School dated August 11, 2010 which ordered them to collect Php15 each from their pupils from Grades 2 to 4 as cost for their test papers.

A part of his memorandum order said that the total collection shall be remitted to his office on or before Aug. 19, 2010.

Almeda said Ablola’s memorandum was highly questionable because he failed to consult the teachers, school heads, parents and the Parents-Teachers Associations before he enforced the collection scheme.

Meanwhile, in DepEd Order 41 series of 2012, DepEd Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro directed all school officials that no fees shall be collected from students in kindergarten up to Grade 4 anytime during school year 2012-2013.  For Grade 5 up to fourth year high school students, no fees were collected from June to July 2012.       Mia B.
