Iskul bukol! Bato’s son in danger of flunking at PNP Academy
The son of Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa is finding the hard way that it takes more than a famous surname to be a cop.
Politiko has learned that Rock Dela Rosa is in danger of flunking at the Philippine National Police Academy.
A source sent Politiko a photo of the list of “deficient cadets” of the PNPA Class of 2021, which includes Rock.
With a grade of 6.881, Rock needs to take a removal exam for his Communication Arts 2 subject.
A removal exam is taken to determine whether a student with a borderline grade should pass or fail a course.
Rock’s inclusion in the “deficient cadets” list presumably means he cannot be promoted to the next level of his studies unless he passes his Communication Arts 2 subject.
In 2017, Dela Rosa said that he was apprehensive about his son’s entry into the PNPA because of the school’s demands.
“Kinakabahan kung kakayanin ba niya. I wish him good luck. Proud ako. Pero bilang ama, kinakabahan din. Makakaya ba niya training? Physically alam ko kayang kaya niya…malakas yun eh. Pero yung psychological, I don’t know. Iba siya. Iba ako,” the PNP chief said.
It now appears Bato’s anxiety has basis.
Will Rock prove to be as tough as his father? Abangan.
