Closure of review centers rejected

Closure of review centers rejected

By Florante S. Solmerin

CHEATING and excessive fees in review centers will worsen under the supervision of the Commission on Higher Education, a youth group said yesterday.

“How could CHED effectively stop cheating and the imposition of exorbitant fees in nursing review centers if it can’t even penalize private schools which continue to violate its guidelines and increase tuition and other school fees? CHED’s futility in the face of pressure from private school owners only shows that it has no credibility and is incompetent to do the job,” Raymond Palatino, president of the Kabataan Party, said.

He said his group is accusing CHED chairman Carlito Puno and his ward of playing double standard on the nursing exam leakage issue, saying its plan to close down review centers is another knee-jerk solution intended for media consumption.

He said plans to put nursing review centers under colleges and universities under the commission’s supervision would not curb cheating and might even be used as an excuse to increase tuition and charge more fees to nursing students.

“The government and CHED are quick to castigate nursing review centers but they continue to allow the operations of substandard schools which they have tolerated for years,” Palatino said.
Weeks after the exposure of the alleged leak in the June nursing licensure examination, CHED executive director Julito Vitriolo told reporters during a roundtable discussion that it would be better if the commission would reassume responsibility over the supervision of nursing licensure test.

Vitriolo also batted for the commission to regulate the review centers.
Palatino said that the imposition of excessive fees for nursing exam review would likely continue even with the implementation of the said plan as most nursing review centers are owned and operated by nursing school owners themselves.
