Pasig teachers ask DepEd to fire principal

MANILA, Philippines – Teachers of a public high school in Pasig City have asked the Department of Education to relieve their principal, saying she has been abusive and disrespectful toward them and the students.

The complaint against Nenita Villamarin was signed by 140 out of the 150 teachers of the Pinagbuhatan High School which has 6,000 students.

Villamarin has been the school principal for six years.

According to Valeriano Enriquez, head of the PNHS faculty, they decided to file a formal complaint against Villamarin after she berated one of their colleagues so loudly that the latter suffered temporary loss of hearing.

Enriquez added that Villamarin has a temper and a habit of yelling and hurling insults at teachers for little or no apparent reason.

“She should be removed from here. She should not be allowed to handle people,” he said.
The principal, meanwhile, denied the allegations leveled against her by her teachers.
In a phone interview, Villamarin said that the accusations “were not true,” adding that she found them “ridiculous.”

When pressed to elaborate on her statement, Villamarin refused, saying she does not want to comment further as the case has already been sent to the DepEd.
