The City College of Calapan will soon offer a course on special education.
This after the Commission on Higher Education approved the city government-run college to offer Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education Major in Special Education.
The approval was based on CHEd Government Recognition No. 0014 Series of 2010, signed by Region IV-B Director Teotica Taguibao on November 24.
College administrator Dr. Rene Colocar said CHEd’s approval of additional course is a proof of the city college’s good standing as an academic institution.
He said he was expecting that in the coming years the college would be able to open additional courses.
The City College of Calapan, founded in 2008 by the administration of Mayor Doy Leachon, offers BS in Tourism Management, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Information Technology and Education.
The college has about 500 students, most of them are city government scholars.
Next year, its main building being built at the back of the New City Hall of Calapan in Barangay Guinobatan will be opened.

The approval for the opening of a new course is in contrast with the recent moratorium on the opening of new programs in business administration, nursing, teacher education, hotel and restaurant management, and information technology education, effective school year 2011-2012 as per CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 32, Series of 2010, issued on 30 September 2010.
In imposing the moratorium, the CHED cited the proliferation of Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) offering undergraduate and graduate programs in business administration, nursing, teacher education, hotel and restaurant management, which, it said, “if allowed to continue unabated, would result in the deterioration of the quality of graduates.”
