Iloilo college faces disaccreditation from CHED

0 581

Bad news for students of the Iloilo City Community College.

No thanks to recent controversies involving alleged mismanagement, the ICCC may lose its accreditation from the Commission on Higher Education.

“I’m afraid (the school) could no longer comply and get the authority from CHED. That is why this is now a wakeup call to the administration,” City Councilor Joshua Alim said.

Alim said that if the college lacks CHED accreditation, its graduates will find it hard to find a job.

Recently, four teachers lodged complaints with Alim’s office claiming the school uses obsolete books, does not pay teachers properly, and promotes unqualified teachers.

The City Council is to conduct an investigation on the claims.

Expected to head the committee hearing is Vice Mayor Jeffrey Ganzon. Also invited are ICCC Administrator Maria Mathilde Treñas-Octavio, Supervising Administrative Officer Jose Renan Escoto, the members of the ICC board of trustees, the four complainants, and a representative from CHED.

Meanwhile, the investigation will also look into the alleged corruption at the ICCC as claimed by Councilor Plaridel Nava.
