The "no-lesson plan" policy of the Department of Education (DepEd) is gaining grounds with the possibility of its implementation in the next school year.
Negros Oriental DepEd schools division superintendent Dr. Milagros Velez is in favor of the no-lesson plan policy but only for really good teachers who have mastered their lessons just like the back of their hands.
But for teachers who are still struggling, the lesson plan should serve as their guide, otherwise they will be lost, she said.
Rep. Pryde Henry Teves of the 3rd district of Negros Oriental said he was assured by DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro that the order will come before June in time for the next school year, on condition that only those with good performance in the last three years will be automatically exempted from preparing lesson plans.
To make Teves' advocacy stronger, he has requested teachers in his district to submit a position paper, stating among other their reasons this policy should be implemented.
