PAGADIAN CITY, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines – Thirty-nine public elementary and secondary school teachers from Western Mindanao hurdled the National Qualifying Examination for Principals (NQEP) given by the National Educational Academy of the Philippines (NEAP) of the Department of Education (DepEd).

Dr. Walter Albos, DepEd region 9 director, said the NQEP was implemented by the DepEd three years ago to eliminate the malpractice by some field education executives of promoting teachers largely on the basis of “whom you know and not what you know” or the so-called “palakasan” system.

Albos said a recently issued DepEd memorandum reported that a total of only 924 out of close to 10,000 examinees or some 9.5 percent made it in the NQEP which gave 90 percentile as the passing mark.

The Deped identified the top 10 NQEP qualifiers from region 9 as Pedrita Pampora who placed first with a rating of 99.69 followed by Arnel Jajan, 99.57; Jones Torres, 99.56; Jennifer Bulalon, 99.31; Rysa Arellano, 99.30; Helen de Leon, 99.10; Maria Fe Valera, 98.25; Fe Josol, 97.95; Ailen Poncho, 97.84, and Fe Butac, 97.62.

The national examination for school principals include school leadership, instructional leadership, creating a student-centered learning climate, professional human resource development, parent involvement and building community, school management and daily operations, personal integrity and interpersonal sensitivity, English language proficiency and reading comprehension.
