The Department of Education (DepEd) ordered all its regional offices to submit the list of names and addresses of private schools with government permit to operate to guide parents and students on which private schools to enroll in.
The list will then be posted in all regional and division offices, municipal halls and other conspicuous places to inform the public of the duly recognized and accredited private schools in the country.
"We encourage parents to check whether the private school where they intend to enroll their children has the required permits so the department can easily track down unaccredited private schools and pursue immediate action," said Education secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.
Luistro added that studying in an unaccredited private school might pose a problem on student's learning due to a possibly unauthorized curriculum.
Pupils and students who had finished an alleged grade/year level in a school without the required permit are advised to take the Philippine Validating Test (PVT) prior to admission to another school to validate the acquired learning gains.
PVT is administered at the National Education Testing and Research Center at the DepEd Central Office.
A master list of private schools with DepEd accreditation is available at the DepEd website, www.deped.gov.ph.*PNA
