Ideal teacher-student ratio not yet possible - Triambulo


Zamboanga City School Division Superintendent, Romy Triambulo yesterday disclosed that the directive of the Department of Education (DepEd) calling for a 1-35 teacher-student ratio in the classroom is still difficult to comply with.

Triambulo said that most of the schools in the city lack classrooms and teachers, especially in the senior high.

In a press conference at City Hall, Triambulo asked the city government to help the DepEd build more schools and classrooms to cope with the yearly increase of the student population.

He also asked for additional teachers, particularly in the senior high schools.

Earlier, the House of Representatives approved H.B. 473, an act regulating the class size in all public schools, which proposes that a “class to be handled by one teacher shall be fixed at a standard size of 35 learners with a maximum of no more than 50 students."

The Deped reassured Congress that it is conducting various interventions to be able to achieve the standard class size and teacher-student ratio in all public schools in the entire country.

Triambulo said that the increase in population of students every year is the main factor why they cannot right away comply with the directive.
