DepEd vows not to tolerate fraud, ethical infringement of research

The Department of Education (DepEd) on Monday assured that “fraud or any form of ethical infringement of research” within the department will not be tolerated and will be dealt with accordingly.

DepEd issued the statement following reports of teachers allegedly buying ready-made research for promotion and funding as pointed out by Senator Sherwin Gatchalian.Under the leadership of Secretary Leonor Briones, DepEd said it “puts premium to the power of research in supporting policy decisions.” Thus, it assured that “any fraud or any form of ethical infringement of research within DepEd will not be tolerated.”

DepEd explained that the Research Management Guidelines (RMG) — issued as Department Order No. 16, s. 2017 — has established research committees across governance levels such as the the National Research Committee (NRC), Regional Research Committee (RRC), and the Schools Division Research Committee (SDRC).
