PIA Press Release

No tuition hike for over 90% of private schools

Manila (4 June) -- Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Mona Valisno last Wednesday disclosed that reports from the various DepEd regional offices indicate that less than 10 percent of the private schools have applied for tuition increase. Thus, more than 90 percent have no tuition increase this school year.

"While there have been several applications for tuition increases by private schools, this represents a small portion of all private schools nationwide," said Valisno.

Valisno noted that applicants for tuition increase declined this year compared to last year due to a steady decrease in the application for tuition increase by private elementary and secondary schools nationwide.

Since last year, the DepEd has been appealing to private school owners and operators to temper their application for school fee increases considering the financial condition of many Filipino families.

Valisno also stressed that under the Education Act of 1982, all applications for increase in tuition and other school fees are subject to the approval of DepEd. "Thus, private schools must comply with the applicable DepEd Orders on the matter before any increase may be imposed," she said.

The DepEd has already directed all field offices to closely monitor any increase being proposed by private schools in order to protect the interests of parents, students, and the general public. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
