DepEd reiterates call
vs. collection of fees


Provincial Schools Superintendent Juliet Jeruta yesterday reminded school officials in Negros Occidental of the Department of Education policy that strictly prohibits the collection of fees during enrolment in all public schools.

Jeruta issued the reminder following complaints that some school officials refused to release report cards because of non-payment of previous accounts, preventing pupils from enrolling.

She also received reports of Parent-Teachers Associations collecting miscellaneous fees, which is prohibited during the opening of classes.

Except for these few complaints, Jeruta said the first day of classes in Negros Occidental was generally peaceful.

She reiterated that enrollment will only be held until Friday.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said he is urging teachers to work hard and concentrate on bringing back the luster to the teaching profession.

It used to be called the noblest profession, he said.

Teachers play a vital role because they act as second parents to children and make a big difference in molding their character, he said.*CPG
