If the result of this year’s Criminology Licensure Examination is any indication, then the educational reforms implemented by Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano when she took over as local chief executive are now paying off.

This, as Mayor Cayetano proudly reported that 28 out of the 32 examinees from the Taguig City University (TCU) successfully hurdled the licensure examinations last October-reflecting a remarkable passing rate of 87.50 percent.

Only a total of 7,789 out of the 17,804 individuals who took the exams got through, resulting in a nationwide passing rate of 43.75 percent.

Mayor Lani congratulated the new criminologists to come out from the city-run TCU, as well as its faculty members.

“The high passing rate among the university’s graduates establishes a good reputation for TCU especially in the eyes of aspiring law enforcers and even lawyers who want to study criminology as a preparatory course,” she said.

But what delighted the 29-year-old lady mayor more was seeing the fruits of the reforms that she had implemented on city’s education sector. It can be recalled that for 2011, the Taguig City government allotted a budget of P1.121 billion for projects in education.

TCU is a beneficiary of this budget increase for education. Through Mayor Lani’s effort, TCU conducted review classes for the examinees. TCU likewise ensured their transportation and lodging during the examination day. Mayor Lani also offered financial incentives for those who would top the exams.

The licensure examinations were administered by the Board of Criminology in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Lucena, Pagadian, Tacloban, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga.

“The city government realizes that education is a worthy investment. Coupled with the wise use of these funds, Mayor Lani’s perseverance in delivering changes to this sector will surely produce more positive results such that of the Criminology Licensure Examinations,” said lawyer Darwin Icay, the mayor’s spokesperson.

A new school building worth P50 million is being constructed in TCU as part of Mayor Lani’s infrastructure upgrade plan.

Mataas na passing rate sa 2011 Criminology Licensure Examination, naiposte ng mga estudyante ng Taguig City University

Kung ang resulta ng katatapos na Criminology Licensure Examination ang gagawing batayan ay masasabing naging epektibo ang ipinatutupad na reporma sa edukasyon ni Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano.

Ipinagmamalaki ni Mayor Cayetano ang pagpasa ng 28 sa 32 estudyante ng Taguig City University (TCU) sa licensure examinations noong Oktubre na ang katumbas ay 87.50 porsiyentong passing rate.

Sa 17,804 na kumuha ng licensure examination, tanging 7,789 ang masuwerteng nakapasa sa pagsusulit na may katumbas na 43.75 porsiyentong nationwide passing rate.

Kaugnay nito, nagpahatid na ng pagbati si Mayor Cayetano sa mga bagong criminologist gayundin sa buong faculty ng TCU na pinatatakbo ng Lungsod ng Taguig.

“Ang mataas na passing rate sa hanay ng mga estudyanteng nagsipagtapos sa TCU ay makabubuti para sa reputasyon ng unibersidad lalo na sa mga nagnanais mag-pulis o di kaya ay sa mga abogado na nais mag-aral ng criminology bilang preparatory course” pahayag ni Mayor Cayetano.

Partikular na ikinatutuwa ng 29-anyos na alkalde ay ang nakita ang ibinunga ng mga reporma sa sektor ng edukasyon. Matatandaan na nitong 2011, naglaan ang pamahalaang lungsod ng P1.121 bilyon na budget para sa mga proyektong pang-edukasyon.

Ang TCU ay isa sa nabenipisyuhan ng itinaas na budget para sa edukasyon. Sa pagsusumikap ni Mayor Lani, nagkaroon ang TCU ng review classes para sa mga estudyanteng kukuha ng naturang pagsusulit. Tiniyak din ng unibersidad ang kanilang transportasyon at matitirhan sa araw ng pagsusulit. Nag-alok din si Mayor Lani ng pinansiyal na insentibo sa estudyanteng makakakuha ng mataas na marka sa nasabing pagsusulit.

Ang licensure examinations ay pinangasiwaan ng Board of Criminology sa mga lunsod ng Maynila, Baguio, Cagayan De Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Pagadian, Tacloban, Tuguegarao at Zamboanga.

“Napagtanto ng pamahalaang lungsod na isang mahalagang investment ang edukasyon. Kaakibat ang tamang paggamit ng pondo, ang pagsusumikap ni Mayor Lani na baguhin ang sektor ng edukasyon ay tiyak na makakalikha ng mga positibong resulta tulad ng matagumpay na Criminology Licensure Examinations,” pahayag naman ni Atty. Darwin Icay, tagapagsalita ni Mayor Cayetano.

Parte ng infrastructure upgrade plan ni Mayor Lani ay ang kasalukuyang pagpapatayo ng bagong gusali sa TCU na nagkakahalaga ng P50 milyon.
