MANILA, Philippines -- The Department of Education has received as of Tuesday at least 180 complaints against schools collecting graduation fees.

DepEd DeTXT Action Center officer-in-charge Demetria Manuel said most of the complaints have come from the National Capital Region, Central Luzon and Region 4-A.

Mayroon talaga umaabot daw sa P500 hanggang P600, ang iba naman ay P300 to P250, hanggang P150 (There are schools that charge between P500-600, others charge P300-250, others P150),” she said.

She said complaints they receive are forwarded to the regional and division offices of the erring schools for investigation and action.
