Ignorance in leadership is unforgivable, most especially if the leader’s ignorance of a policy implicates his entire constituency, or at least a marginalized quarter of  it. Leaders are leaders because we are well-informed, and we educate our constituents on information we get. It is, therefore, an imperative for a leader to be informed at all times.

This case wasn’t particularly true with Cachero, current CSC President, who said he was not informed of the Php 1,000.00 late charge for late enrollees. This remark puts him into the marble slabs of Thomasian history; as one of the misinformed leaders, perhaps the pioneer of that circumstance, in his generation.

Cachero perhaps didn’t know of such penalty because he enrolls early; good for him. But for the hundreds of Thomasians whose families are in a struggle to make ends meet as they shrug deeper into the economic crisis, it is not good.

The auditor of the university, in her interview with the Varsitarian, declares that the policy was agreed upon during the incumbency of Villasenor. That time, Cachero was the CSC auditor. I wonder how could he not gotten this information since Villasenor’s office is less than two cartwheels away from his cubicle? We will never know.

Cachero, it’s November. Wake up.
