Mandatory submission of IPCRF coerces teachers to lie and cheat 


Let's take the hard fact and painful reality of what the public teacher regarded the mandatory submission of their Individual Performance Commitment and Review Form (IPCRF) as made public by an elementary grade teacher II - ICT.

She has relayed on how unreliable this teacher's IPCRF. In her own right and privilege, she described her dissatisfaction objectively. She has pointed out that quality education and the quality of teacher's teaching are not guaranteed by such paper works. She stressed that it is a waste of time.

Teachers are not helped improving their teaching competencies in achieving quality education, she firmly expressed.


DepEd Order No. 2,s. 2015


Guidelines on the establishment and implementation of the Results-Based Performance Management System (RPMS) in the Department of Education are covered by DepEd Order No. 2, s. 2015, dated February 6, 2015.

This is to provide the DepEd a comprehensive guidelines for the adoption of the Civil Service Commission's (CSC) Strategic Performance Management System (SPMS).

The said DepEd Order takes effect immediately on February 6, 2015. At the end of the school year 2015-2016, all personnel and non-teaching in the DepEd have complied with this system.

Now this is its second year of implementation for school year 2016-2017.
How is it now?




Teacher's Reaction


The following is the hard fact and the painful reality on the implementation of IPCRF as aired by a concerned teacher, an elementary grade teacher II. With her permission, I quote her post verbatim from her Facebook account:


"High rating of teacher's IPCRF is not at all a guarantee of quality education. It will actually contribute in the further deterioration of the quality of teaching.  
Teachers are supposed to focus and devote their precious time and efforts on teaching and seek further education for personal and professional growth and further enhance teaching skills and strategies.  
Mandatory submission of annual IPCRF is a wanton disregard of its impact to the teachers' being in particular and his actual output in general, considering his wasted time in securing "hard evidence" to "prove high individual performance".  
Teachers are in "delivery service" and NOT in "advertising" industry. We deliver and transfer the knowledge to the learners. We do not submit papers, documents, pictures, certificates and the likes to impress superiors and tell the whole world that we performed well and met the expected output. Papers do not guarantee that individual really delivered the expected output.  
Honestly? Mandatory submission of IPCRF only induce SOME (not all) to lie and to cheat. Simply put, IPCRF is not helping every teacher's dream to achieve quality education. We simply DELIVER, we do not ADVERTISE for we are not SELLERS. We are PRODUCERS."

Is it a form of lying and cheating for the teachers to oblige them to submit their personal IPCRF every end of the school year? What do you think?
