CHED says faculty members to get full allowances on Dec. 29



By Rose de la Cruz


For some 2,152 college faculty whose kinder to Grade 12 Transition program allowances have been delayed, they will receive them in full on December 29, while 1,011 will get partial release on January 5 and still another 933 are still pending processing in regional offices of the Commission on Higher Education.


CHED chair Patricia Licuanan made this announcement following persistent follow-ups made by Rep. Frederick Siao of the lone district of Iligan and member of the appropriations, economic affairs and 8 other committees of the House. Siao profusely thanked CHED for its prompt action.


CHED has admitted it was swamped by the over 11,000 sets of documents from 9,500 faculty scholars of their historic K to 12 Transition program.


To express our sincerity, I am open to cooperating with the CHED Commission en banc on their proposals to address their internal weaknesses with external support on long term structural reforms, he said.


He said he is also open to addressing the agency’s ailments via the 2019 budget, the budget call for which is expected to be issued by the DBM as early as January 2018.


Those 9,500 faculty scholars and the hundreds of thousands of senior high school students who will graduate in 2018 and move on to college need a CHED that is working efficiently and effectively.


CHED has to do much better than it has so far. The transition impact of senior high on our colleges and universities will be felt for about three to five years after the current school year.


Add to that the systemic effects of free college education via the SUCs.
