ACT Teachers Party-list on Wednesday lauded the Department of Education Secretary Leonor Briones following the announcement of the abolition of the daily lesson logs (DLL) order.
“We support the earlier announcement of DepEd Sec. Leonor Briones on abolishing the order released for making Daily Lesson Logs (DLL), or the DO (DepEd order) 42, s. 2016 and use the teacher and learner manual instead,” the party-list said in a statement.
Last June 17, DepEd issued the policy guidelines for the order under former Sec. Armin Luistro. According to the guidelines, the DLL or Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP) is said to provide teachers “how to best facilitate the learning process” and “empower [them] to carry out quality instruction.”
The party-list expressed their dismay when the agency released the guidelines, which they said have caused a lot of issues and difficulties for teachers in the primary education.
“We have received many reports that in many schools, the DLLs cause additional yet unnecessary hardship to teachers, and worse, without additional compensation,” the group said.
“Writing them take away precious time better spent for developing teaching aids and, of course, rest.”
ACT Teachers described the order as an ally of the K-12 program, which the group also detested even before its full implementation.
“It is an oppressive scheme of the K to 12 and RPMS (Results Based Performance Management System) that creates chaos among teachers.”
