    I affirm the top 10 reasons of hiring competent principals – who are highly professional and yet can balance firmness and compassion.

  2. I commend the writer of the 10 reasons why Deped should hire competent school heads. I must agree that the performance of a shool is dependent to the leader. But, sad to say that many but not all principals lack leadership skills that leads to poor school performance. I hope the Department will come up with more stringent evaluation of school principals’ performance. I may also suggest that there should be a refresher course for principals every after 4-5 years in the position to avoid lackadaisical attitude.

  3. Favortism is common in public school, especially some school heads doing this to some teachers who are always show closeness and wanting a better rpms records. In some reasons some teachers show superiority from others because of this closeness..its very unfair to others..In my opinion, there must be a school head who will correct the wrong doings and abusive acts of some teachers..Any corruptions in school must be stopped..Hopefullly there will investigations like this..Administrator should be tough to correct wrong doings by some abusive teachers..

  4. It reminds me of my former School head of SPNHS; Ma. Isidra R. Delos Santos.. A very optimistic, motherly principal. She led the school with love and respect. One of a kind school head… I loved and highly respected her…

  5. I believe that competent , capable and qualified principal should be hired. School principal who possesses those that have been mentioned would figure out a hard working and a dreamer leader.Who can provide what is needed in the school being an institution for learning..Deped needs to correct that ,that only capacitated and qualified shall be installed as principal. Inorder to have a good quality output. Shall not make principalship a milking cow.
