Malacañang yesterday directed the Commission on Higher Education to ensure that there will be no unreasonable tuition increase in private universities and colleges.
Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. of the Presidential Communications Operations Office, said that while some tuition fee hikes are inevitable, the CHED should ensure that the guidelines and requirements provided by the law on tuition increase should be met.
The commission has reported that 353 private universities and colleges, 74 of which are in Metro Manila, have filed petitions for an increase in tuition and other fees this coming school year.
CLO urged to look into
violations of resort
Two kagawads of Brgy. Alangilan, Bacolod City, are appealing to the Bacolod City Legal Office to look into the alleged violations committed by the owner of the Metro Safari Resort.
Alangilan Kagawad Alex Sausi yesterday said that, despite the cease-and- desist order issued by the Department of Agrarian Reform Regional Office 6, businessman Francis Rey Cabuga has resumed the construction of several structures inside the resort Tuesday.
The DAR Regional Office has issued a cease-and-desist order to Cabuga for illegally converting farm holdings designated as lot numbers 1581-B-2, 1581-B-3 and 1581-B-4 in Brgy. Alangilan for non-agricultural uses without an approved land conversion order.
