Anti–truancy law to reprimand abseentism w/o valid reason
by Spencer P. Cayabyab

Saying it is necessary for the students’ growth and future and to ease the burden of parents, Councilor Joel Alangsab proposed an ordinance prohibiting truancy or the act of getting absent from school or any school-related activities without valid cause.

Alangsab said it is already alarming that some parents are already complaining to him regarding their truant children, who leave their houses in school uniforms but are not actually attending their classes.

To address abseetism without valid reasons, the ordinance seeks to prohibit any student especially elementary pupils and secondary students  in school uniforms “to loiter, linger, or stay in a public place or business establishments during school hours.”

The proposed measure enjoins all school authorities to strictly monitor students and discourage them from loitering and lingering outside school premises during class hours. School hours usually starts from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students who will not follow the ordinance will be apprehended and will be brought to their respective barangay council for the protection of children desk wherein they will undergo counselling.

Once approved, the ordinance states that parents and teachers who will not follow the provisions of the policy will be fined from a minimum of P500 up to maximum of P3,000 depending on the frequency of offense.

Even business establishments that allow pupils and students to enter their premises to loiter during school hours will be penalized by the ordinance.

Alangsab his office has already coordinated with different sectors to comment on the proposed ordinance to ensure the effective implementation if approved into a local policy.

The ordinance also suggests for the creation of an Anti-Truancy Board.
