Teacher’s Group to Briones: Do your job

The Alliance of Concerned Teachers criticized Education Secretary Leonor Briones welcoming presumptive vice president Sara Duterte-Carpio as the next DepEd chief.

“Teka lang po, madame secretary, hindi pa tapos ang bilangan sa halalan at lalong hindi pa tapos ang inyong trabaho. Marami pa kayong utang sa mga guro, sa mga estudyante at sa buong sektor ng edukasyon. Gawin muna ninyo ang trabaho ninyo bago kayo mag-welcome ng kung sinuman,” Raymond Basilio, the group’s secretary general, said.

“Aside from this, the Briones leadership still has to reimburse teachers of their many distance learning expenses, as well as out-of-pocket expenses for the preparation of limited face-to-face classes. In the 27 months of blended learning, the DepEd has only provided for a total of 16 months of around P300 monthly internet subsidy. Expenses for module printing were still not reimbursed and majority of teachers are yet to receive DepEd-issued laptops. Teachers are still asking where the P900 billion budget for preparing school reopening is because they once again shouldered the costs of classroom repairs and maintenance. Dapat bayaran muna ng DepEd ang mga utang na ito sa guro bago matapos ang termino ni Secretary Briones,” Basilio said.

He said that the DepEd should conduct a national student assessment to have an evidence-based analysis of the education crisis in the country.

“The least she can do is to provide the next DepEd leadership of an objective assessment of the situation to guide future policies and programs,” Basilio said.

  1. Bilion bilion ang pera nang deped puro bakit walang school library with internet? Bakit walang cafeteria ang bawat public school lalo na sa bundok. Di ba kayang gawin ito. Yung may magandang makakainan ang mga bata. At may library din silang mapuntaha.

    1. Totoo po yan, Sir. Naniniwala ako na ang estado ng mga silid-aklatan ay naglalarawan din sa estado ng ating pampublikong edukasyon. Bilang guro at taong mahilig magbasa, tunay po na nakakalungkot ang ganyang obserbasyon. Walang access ang mga bata sa de-kalidad na libro or maayos na internet. Sana man lang naayos ito. Masaklap talaga ang nangyayari kapag mahina ang lider at nagbubulag-bulagan pa.

  2. Noong panahon namin, ang school namin may library na punong puno ng libro na puedeng hiramin at bawat pupil ay may textbooks. Meron kaming school canteen. Meron kaming full time na school nurse at dentist. Kumpleto kami sa mga bakuna at regular na nililinis mga ipin namin. Barrio elementary school lang yon.
    Grade 3 pa lang kami noon, marunong na kaming bumasa at nakakaintindi ng English. Pagdating ng grade 4, kabisado na namin ang multiplication table at nakakasulat na kami ng essay.

  3. As my opinion, before theirs no gadgets which one cause where the learners didn’t focused subject areas. Don’t compare before and the new normal of education it terreble. Now the learner promoted without knowledge.
    What do you expect the new generation who will be the one handle different positions in the government.
