DepEd Found Over 155 Errors and Vulgar Words in Learning Materials/Modules
The Department of Education (DepEd) reported that they have discovered about 155 errors in their learning materials and modules.
On Monday (June 14, 2021), Deped Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio reported that they have found 163 errors in learning materials but eventually reduced to 155. The errors have been found in modules issued from October 2020 to June 2021.
San Antonio said that 100 of those errors have been found in locally-developed materials. 20 more errors came from unknown sources, according to the DepEd official. The agency has also ordered the teachers to fix the errors.
“Hindi po ‘yan ma-locate, wala pong nakapagpapakita sa amin na nasa DepEd ‘yan o ginawa ‘yan ng DepEd,” San Antonio said.
Aside from errors, vulgar words have been also found into one of the learning materials. Diosdado said that the vulgar word they have found is unacceptable.
Here is the passage:
“Siya rin ay isang dies pero ang Aswang ay pinaniniwalaan na ito’y tao na kumakain ng kapwa tao, kung minsan ang mga ito ay pinapaniwalaan na may mga pakpak at sila raw ay gising kung gabi para maghanap ng makakantot or maaswang.”
AAMBIS-OWA party-list Representative Sharon Garin said that the number of errors found in the modules are quite scary.
