DepEd is poised to “burn” ₱5M gov’t support to private school involved in burning students’ bags

LEGAZPI CITY — Department of Education Regional Dir. Gilbert T. Sadsad revealed that he will recommend a national policy that would penalize private schools violating Child Protection law by cancellation not only of their permits to operate but including financial support for those catering to senior high school students under DepEd’s K-12 program.

This came following Friday’s report of burning of backpack bags, laptop and phone of senior high students by an irate school owner and administrator of Bicol Central Academy identified as Alexander James Jaucian, who happens to be an incumbent Board Member of Camarines Sur.

The incident, that went viral over social media and has prompted Sadsad to immediately motor to Libmanan, Camarines Sur, to personally conduct the on-the-spot inspection on the said school despite being new in office.

Initial findings of DepEd show that Jaucian’s uncivilized actions came when irritated upon learning that some senior high students failed to follow his instructions that they should be in “business attire”, and bring “small bags” only on that day when the school was celebrating “Tachumake Day” being done yearly every month of August.

According to Mrs. Jocelyn O. Dy, DepEd Education Supervisor on Quality Instructions, that under the senior high school voucher program, Bicol Central Academy, a family corporation, has 407 beneficiaries and the school is claiming for government assistance of ₱5,936,000.00, the biggest fund support from DepEd among 41 private schools in Camarines Sur.
