DepEd warns teacher-applicants against extortionists
Director Ramon Fiel Abcede said the department did not authorize anybody to peddle teaching positions or any other position in any division in Bicol.
He issued the advice after the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) arrested in an entrapment operation last January 28 in Tabaco City a man who offered a teacher-applicant a permanent teaching position if she pays an initial fee of P5,000.
The suspect allegedly assured the female teacher-applicant of a permanent position at DepEd Tabaco City Division saying that he had successfully facilitated with the office the documents of numerous applicants and are now employed at various DepEd divisions in the region.
The applicant, however, entertained doubts and, together with another teacher-applicant who was also offered the same scheme, inquired with the office about the offer. Director Abcede and Administrative Officer Jose Bonto told them that the offer was bogus and illegal.
Director Abcede then requested the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to conduct an investigation which led to the arrest of the suspect.
Abcede reiterated that teacher-applicants should not deal with persons other than the members of the screening committee of the school where they submitted their application for a teaching position and the division selection committee who will finalize the ranking of all teacher-applicants.
Further, he said that recruitment and hiring of new teachers follow the set of guidelines stipulated in DepEd Order No. 14, s. 2014 which do not directly involve the director, the regional office, and its personnel. (AAN/JJJP-PIA5/DepEd)
