DepEd OKs Tuition Fee Increase of 128 Private SchoolsLearn the conditions and justifications behind DepEd’s approval of private schools’ tuition fee increase.
As a response to private schools’ petition, the Department of Education (DepEed) recently approved the tuition fee increase of some 128 out of 9,995 private schools. Education Secretary Mona D. Valisno emphasizes that therefore, more than 90 percent of private schools will not have a tuition fee increase.
DepEd says they have no control over private schools’ actions, but this does not mean that these schools can become abusive when granted. They have been urging private schools since last year to be more considerate of the financial state of families before considering applying for tuition fee increase.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Those who proposed tuition fee hikes requested for six to eight percent while the rest requested for one to five percent. Before qualifying for such a petition, schools must first comply with the consultation requirements. Explained Jonathan Malaya, DepEd Assistant Secretary, “The private school must submit documentation of the meeting wherein parents, teachers, and students were consulted of the proposed increase, otherwise their application will not be given due course. The private school must also submit financial documents to show that existing funds are not enough to cover the increase in salaries, etc,” he added.CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
In order to remain competitive, certain private schools intended to give raises to teachers’ salaries.
Based on DepEd’s 2010 Revised Manual of Regulations, 70 percent of the tuition fee hike will go to teachers’ wages, 20 percent to improvement of facilities, and 10 percent to the school’s profit.
Any school which goes against such regulations will be rid of its license to operate.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
