Pelaez speaks out vs Ched’s closure order


Misamis Oriental Vice Govenor Jose Mari Pelaez has manifested before the lower house’s committee on higher and technical education that Bukidnon State Unversity – External Studies Centers (BSU-ESC) graduates has surpassed higher than the national education standard.

Pelaez said his manifestation has gained support not only from the Mindanao-based representatives but also from other lawmakers from the Visayas after the Commission on Higher Education (Ched) officials claimed BSU-ESC’s schools in the province and Bukidnon municipalities have non-qualified teachers and sub-standard facilities.

“Sub-standard and kulang kuno ang mga facilities unya ang mga non-qualified teachers. Mao nga atong gi-present didto ang data sa mga graduates unya nakita nga daghan ang naka-trabaho and daghan ang naka-pasar sa Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET),” he said.

He said passing rates when it comes LET is higher than the national level. Passing rate in BSU-ESC’s campuses shows 60 to 80 percent compared to national passing rate of only 28 percent.

“If facilities were sub-standard dili unta mopasar ang mga teachers nga mi-graduate,” he pointed out.

On Tuesday, the lower house committee on higher and technical education, chaired by committee chair Ann Hofer (2nd district Zamboanga Sibugay), conducted the first hearing of the issue raised by Rep. Juliet Uy (2nd district Misamis Oriental) and Malou Acosta – Alba (1st district Bukidnon) before the committee against Ched’s order to close the BSC-ESCs.

Duna gani nahimong mga pulis and other professionals who (showed) excellence in their field,” Pelaez said.
