    0

    COTABATO CITY: The Department of Education (DepEd) of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) has banned the solicitation of cash donations from public school teachers for the ARMM Athletic Association Meet to be held in Marawi City for the first time next month, officials said on Monday. Retired teachers in Lanao del Sur have reported the collection of P1,000 cash donations from each teacher to cover the expenses of the annual athletic convergence, said DepED-ARMM Secretary Jamar Kulayan. Collecting P1,000 from each teacher would easily raise P22 million. The solicitation was allegedly being enforced by schools district supervisors and division superintendents on the strength of a memorandum directive from the regional DepEd office.
