Complaint Against ACLC SORSOGON
JANUARY 20, 2005
TO AMA EDUCATION SYSTEM
Department of education DECS
And COMMISSION ON HIGHER EDUCATION (ched)
This is to bring to your attention what is going on in AMA CLC SORSOGON.
The number of teacher is only five or six for all the subjects.
The qualification for some of the subjects they teach is more than questionable since some of them even confess have no background of the subject they are requested to teach..
The policy seems to be: as long a teacher can read a book, he or she can understand, explain and teach the subject. The truth is far from this expectation.
25 to 50 % of the classes are ever dropped after attendance checking or not attended to by teachers who multiply the absences.
Some tests results for prelim are not yet given to the students.
The lessons are given mostly in local dialect even students cannot get it, and even language classes.
The school starts always one week after the official beginning of school by DECS and the first week is often gravely affected by schedules not ready or lack of teachers.
Some students get 25 points bonus for class participation even with deeply failing grades in exams and absences during quizzes. In some subjects 0 answers become automatically 75. One absentee gets in these cases the lowest grade obtained by attending students
That can be easily verified in the teachers records and attendance sheets.
The administration seems to be deficient in giving proper quality education in this place.
Mat we suggest you to investigate or observe this learning center for improvement before the next school year.
This is very discouraging for students we really want to learn and are dedicated to their studies making the needed efforts.
Allow us to keep anonymity for the sake of the concerned students regarding possible retaliation in the part of the office and teachers.
