Isko Moreno orders removal of politicians’ names from Manila schools, even his own



There is no stopping the new mayor of Manila.

Just today Mayor Isko Moreno has ordered the removal of politicians’ names from all schools in the Philippines capital to “distance public education from traditional politicking.”


And that will include his name if found, this policy was decided during the City School Board meeting.

“Pinatatanggal ko lahat ng pangalan, ultimo ang pangalan ko at pangalan ng mga pulitiko, na nakapintura o nakakabit sa mga eskwelahan,” Moreno said.

“Lahat ng mga naglalagay na pulitiko ng kanilang mga pangalan as if you are immortalizing yourself or as if it is your money, that is not your money. Pera yan ng taumbayan,” he added.


Moreno’s order takes effect “as soon as possible” and will cover all public school primary and secondary schools in Manila.


When asked about the customary Happy graduation greetings being done by local politicians, Moreno said it will be tolerated as long as the streamers and tarpaulins are placed outside of school premises.

Domagoso slams politicians who paint their names on school buildings “as if it was their money” that was used to put those up.


“Bawal ang epal. Tigilan na natin ‘yan.
