PIA Press Release

Ifugao Deped officials deny bribery in campuses

by Jina Shirley G. Dacmay

LAGAWE, Ifugao (16 October) -- School authorities here deny the presence of bribery in school campuses saying that Ifugaos have the strong sense of value imbibed in them.

“So far there are no cases of bribery filed in our office here”, confirmed Division Schools Superintendent Estela Carino.

Supervisors also said that in the province where poverty is present, teachers will not dare to collect money as payment for failing grades of students because they understand the plight of parents and foremost they say that this is not a good value to teach the students.

It has been observed other classroom needs like papers and pencils are sometimes provided for free by teachers to pupils whose parents could not afford to buy.

It was disclosed that contributions maybe collected provided they are voluntary or in other cases, it has been agreed upon by the Parents Teachers Community Association (PTCA).

Juliet Cablinan, Principal of a Catholic School here agrees that while bribery in some school campuses outside the province is secretly practiced, ”we do not allow this to happen in our schools, she said.

She shared her experiences with a few students coming from other schools for summer classes in their institution who tried to talked them on paying their tuition fee without attending class. But she stressed, “We do not want to breed corruption in our institution We hope this kind of thinking will never enter the minds of our own students.”

Cablinan added that tolerating such practice will contribute to their destruction and frustration in the future. When the students are exposed to and formed by corruption and loss respect to campus institutions, they can easily loss respect to the broader institutions of governance when they are brought into the mainstream of society

She suggested creative interventions like strengthening of integrated values subjects and modeling good values by teachers in institutions will help address and curb corrupt and corruptible practices in campuses. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
