St. Scholastica’s College To Lose Accreditation As An Educational Institution

IMG_3054MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –  If shoes were made for walking, then schools are there for learning.

With this in mind, the Philippines’ Department of Education today stripped St. Scholastica of its accreditation on the grounds that it has failed in its mission as a learning institution.

St. Scho, as it is more popularly known, has been fielding its young students to various political protests and rallies, allowing them to skip their classes and be the “face” of Filipino youth fighting for their f*cked up future.

Whether it is to protest the Marcos burial or Duterte’s war on drugs, the ever-smiling, seemingly innocent teenagers have been in the forefront, supporting the political agenda of the Opposition, notably St. Scho alumnus Senator Risa Hontiveros.

Parents of the students have consistently complained that their kids seem to be regressing instead of progressing in their knowledge since enrolling at the previously all-girls Catholic school.

Meanwhile, the Bureau of Internal Revenue is considering issuing an order to the school to pay back taxes that it had previously been exempt from as a nonprofit, religious organization.

This is a developing story.  Check back for updates.

  1. St. Scholastica is not the only institution getting into politics so is the Church and some institutions. These institutions are getting out of and from what they’re supposed to be meant to do.
