DePEd: Bought overprice anti-head lice shampoo
Have you heard the news lately? Our Department of Education bought shampoos for head lice at a higher price. The shampoo will be given to Public school students who cannot afford to treat it. I always buy this kind of shampoo because my niece has head lice, so I know that the price of a 1 sachet is between P10-P12 only based on its SRP (Suggested Retail Price). I think DepEd is wise enough to go directly in the supplier and not into the stores to buy that anti-lice shampoo, because if you will buy it directly in the manufacturer or supplier in bulk they will give it to you at cost. The difference in the SRP is around 10-15%, this percentage is the marked up or the profit that the seller (stores) add to the items.
Do I sound geeky now? 🙂 I knew these things because I have worked in the marketing department before as I’ve said in my recent post.
This Government sector has so many anomalies in the past years. I remember the text book they bought with wrong grammar and spelling (they did not counter checked it), and then the computers that they bought but they just stored it in their warehouses, and now these anti-lice shampoos. I came from a public school when I was in Elementary, so based on my experience, I knew that there are many things lacking in public schools. Like comfortable desks and chairs, laboratories and computer rooms, safe playgrounds and most of all clean restrooms. Some public school rooms does not even have electric fans and even roofs. I think this must be the things our government put our hard earned taxes. But even they have a plan to do it if the people managing it have their own agenda then nothing will really accomplish. They make profit out of every project they are planning. Evil is everywhere in their offices.
I have so many things to say but it’s already too long and I don’t want my readers to be bored in my self pity stories. I will only give you some tips on how to avoid having head lice.
– avoid situations where there is an intimate contact or personal article like comb, hairbrush, caps, towels etc.
– buy shampoo like Licealiz (this brand is the only thing I remember)
– Washed your bedding and clothes in very hot water to get rid of head lice if you’ve come across an infestation
– To get rid of head lice infestations, thoroughly vacuum places where people rest often.
Hope these tips helps.
