What no one tells you is that the division heads and school principals turn deaf and mute over the huge problems in education

How effective are your division heads and school principals? They are the first people to know the long-time problems our system is facing yet not a word from them. What no one tells you is that they all turn blind-eye, deaf and mute to what is going on with the system. They knew the problems but they want to zip their mouth over it.They are the first people who will shut you up during conversations. An example for this is during visitations of higher DepEd officials to schools. The division heads will tell the teachers what and when to say. Briefing will come through because they are afraid teachers will say what they need to say. The division heads will shut the mouth of the teachers to say only good things.

This is the main problem in DepEd. How would our highest official know what the teachers are fighting? If the division heads will always tell he teachers what to say, then how will the highest officials know? Most of the time, the division heads and school principals suck at their job. They receive good salaries sitting in their air-conditioned offices while teachers suffered.

The problem is not in the central office, it is in the division levels of every province. The division heads sitting are weak enough to tell the truth in their schools. They shut the mouth of their teachers and in return, teachers suffer. Problems with the lack of classrooms, facilities and many more don’t get solutions. Instead, teachers find the solutions because they are the first people affected.

What does your division heads and school principals know? They knew everything but they kept silent. The school principals followed the division heads because they avoid conflicts. These people receive good salary yet they don’t work their butts off. Like for example, VP Sara already reminded to the “no paperworks” for teachers. Yet, these divisions still gave them extra paperworks and seminars and all. Then they let the teachers do it on a Saturday and Sunday. Where is justice in these situations?

It’s time for you to weigh what good did your division heads and school principals does? It may not be true to all province but most of the provinces do. This is the truth no one is telling you.Avril | Helpline PH
