According to a report on ABS-CBN’s late night news program “Bandila” aired Monday night, both CHEd and PRC clarified that the list is fake.

Some blogs copied and posted it without verification from proper authorities, a practice that bloggers should avoid so as not to affect site trustworthiness and credibility.
