CHED ready to support President Noynoy Aquino administration

July 2, 2010 11:05 pm 

MANILA, July 2 — Outgoing Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chair Dr. Emmanuel Angeles on Friday said that the commission has set the formal turnover ceremony on July 19 and reiterated that he is ready to step down and support the administration of President Benigno Aquino III.

“We have to support the present administration he is now our president whether we like it or not.” Angeles said.

He stressed that he is more than willing to turn over the post to Dr. Patricia Licuanan, whose appointment was announced during Aquino’s inaugural address after taking his oath noon of June 30 as the 15th president of the country.

Angeles refused to comment on Aquino’s statement describing CHED as sleeping on the job when he named Licuanan and directed the latter to properly address all issues hounding the higher education sector particularly in nursing education.

Aquino did not hide his dismay on CHED’s performance after learning that more than half of the country’s nursing schools posted a record of below the national passing average as earlier disclosed by Angeles.

Earlier, Angeles also bared that in a seven-year period (2001-2008) the number of flunkers in Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC) – administered licensure exams exceeded the number of board passers by as much as 1.42 million or about 64 percent.

This means that only 808, 884 (36.35 percent) out of the 2, 225, 571 examinees for the period has passed the test.

The problem, he said is compounded by the fact that of the existing 1, 741 HEI's in the country, only 50 or 3 percent have good facilities.

Angeles earlier told reporters that he is ready to step down as CHED chair claiming that he already submitted his report on the state of the country’s higher education sector to Malacanang.

“Hindi na kailangan yun, ang importante ay ang suporta sa bagong liderato,” Angeles said dismissing Aquino’s statement about CHED alleged ineptness.

He added that the formal turnover was set at 8:30 in the morning of July 19 coinciding the with the regular Monday flag-raising ceremony at CHEd head office in UP Diliman Campus, Quezon City.

Angeles is actually set to step down on July 21 after taking over the CHED post from Romulo Neri at the height of the scandal surrounding the botched USD 329 million ZTE-National Broadband Network deal.

Officials and employees of the CHED, on the other hand, welcomed Licuanan’s appointment who served as president of Miriam College.

“It is a good and well-deserved appointment. Dr. Licuanan is well respected and the academe and she has well-proven track record in higher education. She comes from a family of noted and respected academicians. She is certainly very welcome in CHED,” CHED Executive Director Atty. Julito Vitriolo said.

Aside from being an academician, Licuanan is also very active in women issues serving as the Philippines ’ representative, then vice chairperson and eventually chairperson of the Conference on the Status of Women during the 1995 World Conference on Women held in Beijing China.

She also served as the trustee of the Center for Asia-Pacific Women in Politics. (PNA) LOR/HCT

    good day to everyone! first, i would like to post comment regarding Emmanuel Y. Angeles, he’s a liar, great liar! actually we don’t need him anymore, and ok for him if he may rest in peace. This kind of chairman needs to assign in maguindanao. He is simply corrupt, using ched funds without consulting from auditor, He bought everything, specially in PALARO last feb 2010. He, and his school in Pampanga AUF) Angeles University Foundation) gained more money from CHED, What kind of Chairman is this? why Malacanang allowing chairman to use funds of ched in illegal way? May school siya sa Pampanga, at ang masakit, lahat cinnectado sa ched ang mga walanghiyang AUF na yan. Mabuti na ngayon at nagbago ng Pangulo ng Pilipinas, kung hindi ay habang buhay sunod-sunuran ang mga official ng CHED walang magawa sa matandang currupt na yan, malakas kay Gloria, kaya lahat ng mali ginagawa, asan ang hustisya para sa masamang gawain ng matandang ito? Siya ang batas ng CHED, na walang kwentang pamamalakad? sino na bang nagluklok sa taong ito, kundi ang walanghiyang Gloria na yan. O God, please help CHED.

    There is such a thing in this world that we JUDGE people by what they do and we fail to see the intentions behind it. The 74 year old man at CHED has turned CHED into its proper function. Employees should realize what this good hearted man has done. He was and will always be remembered for he has done a lot. Since CHED lack the think tank so to speak, he had to invite the support of the AUF experts. Why don’t we see that we are all in need of each other and for each other to achieve a common goal , a noble one to that effect? Let’s stop barking, instead come out in the open and face the consequences of your accusations…..if you can’t baka naman naputol na kasi ni Chairman EYA ang “business” mo…..kolektor ka ba?

    Good luck for the new boss to you all at CHED. She cannot do it without giving your full support.

    Patrick : how much u earned from the chairman? I know, isa ka sa nakinabang kaya pinagtatanggol mo si Tatang. Well Tatang is okay in other matters, but he’s bad in terms of money. and you know why? always saying in PANUNUMPA NA : HINDI AKO TATANGGAP NG SUHOL” DI NGA SIYA ANG TUMATANGGAP KUNDI ANG KANYANG MGA GALAMAY PARA SA KANYA? What about a lots of “kaing ng suha” ilang styro, oh, nestor is right, all messages are truly right. Buti ka pa nakatanggap ka na galing kay Chairman ng biyaya. What about us? nakatanggap kami ng puro pang aalipusta galing sa matandang iyan. Remember chairman announced last flag ceremony, he will having a birthday treat to all employees of CHED, But then POSPONED? why? you know why, masisilip kasi at malalaman na di pera niya ang gagastusin, so he decided to celebrate in AUF Nanghihinayang sa magagastos dito, kasi di na pwede reimbursement. O Mr. Patrick, ano ngayon ang comment mo? Di ba ikaw ang taga kuha ng mga bigaybigay kay chairman?
