Lawmaker wants auditing bodies for tuition increases


Increases on tuition fees should be audited, a lawmaker is suggesting. Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian of Valenzuela is proposing the creation of auditing bodies attached to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) which will monitor and evaluate whether a big portion of the proceeds from tuition fee hikes really goes to the salaries of teaching and non-teaching staff as provided for under CHED Memorandum Order No. 3, series of 2012. Private schools have been increasing their tuition and other fees almost every year and yet there is no mechanism by which CHED can verify if allocating the proceeds to salary increases and facility improvement has been strictly complied with, the lawmaker said.
