Good News! Sara Duterte has a heart for teachers and a salary increase is her top priority

Good News! Sara Duterte has a heart for teachers and a salary increase is her top priority

VP Sara Duterte is the shining armor for teachers so that they will be given an opportunity to experience a lump sum raise in their salaries. Teachers are already known for their left and right loans. They are already surviving due to loans because, without those lenders allowing teachers to have their loans, they couldn’t survive the crisis in life.

The sole hope for raising teachers’ pay is President BBM and Vice President Sara Duterte. Compared to nurses, the military, firefighters, and the police, public school teachers earn less than those professions. Sara Duterte, who is the vice president for administration, needs to find a way to solve this problem. If this raise in pay were put into place soon, teachers would have been treated fairly.

Vice president and DepEd secretary Sara Duterte was urged to realize a reasonable increase in teachers’ salaries. The Secretary-General, Raymond Basilio of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers, stressed that they have been fighting against the injustice done to our teachers.

“We know that there are some limitations with the budget, but we’ve been doing this injustice to our teachers for several years already.” Recently, the Supreme Court upheld that the entry-level pay for nurses is salary grade 15 or P37, 000, “said Basilio.

“We have the same qualifications for our military personnel, their pay has been increased years ago.” It’s quite unfair for teachers who have the same qualifications and job description to be left out, “he added.

Aside from the reasonable increase in teachers’ salaries, Basilio urged the DepEd secretary to ensure that schools are ready to accommodate all students for the next school year.

The only hope for the teachers’ salary increase is VP Sara Duterte and PBBM. They serve as heroes for teachers because it’s been a long time since teachers were patiently waiting for the lump sum increase, but the increase is still so small. It is not enough to cater to the needs of their families. All commodity prices are rising rapidly, but wage increases are so small that they are barely noticeable. – Doki | Helpline PH

  1. What teachers need also is to have a healthcard, nakakaawa ang mga teachers kapag nagkakasakit nang malubha, we have co-teacher before who went on prolonged sick leave without pay, he was just relying on dole outs from friends and colleagues to get by and purchase his prescription medicines.

    1. Tama po ma’am dapat meron po tau health card,or health insurance man lng😰,bakit po ganunandatory ung GSIS insurance na hindi man lng po tau oriented sa mga benepisyo aside from pension.Sana nman complete po tau ng benefits,scholarship dn po sa mga anak,pabahay etc.kasi ung salary po natin ay tamang tama lng po sa budget sa pagkain..parang pakiramdam ko na ito’y isang profession na isang kahig,isang tuka😰😰 nakapanglulumo po tlga

  2. yes free hospitalization po,kawawa po ang mga teachers nagkakaroon ng sakit gaya ng breast cancer marami na po,sana naman mabigyan ng pansin.

    Teachers are loaded with paperwork, teaching loads, second parent, and a Yaya of their learners. Yes! Teachers really deserve a salary increase or higher salary grade. A Salary of Grade 15 for the newly hired is good enough, for the teachers to live decently.
    If there is a salary increase for teachers, it must be given on a lump sum basis, not a tranch system so that they can budget properly.
    And in terms of promotion, the pet/palakasan system must be eliminated. Kawawa naman ang nag struggle to study. Everything is spent such as time, money, and energy. Fairness and justice must be served to those who struggle!

    1. True mam..nagaral k para mapromote.pero may npropromote khit hindi ngaral kasi kilala nila ADAS ng DO or my kilala sila sa loob..its unfair…nkakanlumo ngpkiramdam kasi ikw ang first sa ranking ikaw ang nwalan…hayyyzzz…

    Good afternoon Sir/Madam! I’ve just retired last March 1, 2021 as teacher. If the PBB 2019 budget will be released, Kasama parin Po ba Ako sa mga makatanggap Ng benefits? Kasi Po walang PBB 2019. Maraming salamat Po & God bless!
    **Dito Po sa Isabela State University, Roxas, Isabela Po Ako nagretire at the age of 61. . .

  5. Yes we deserved an increase of salary our responsibilities are left and right.. we are the channels of all departments, a back up for the backlogs of all agencies, we did lots of paper works, we need a deserved compensations we are not just merely teachers but a health worker, a care taker, an artist, a yaya, etc… we did responsibilities beyond limits since all department had given us addition work loads not just merely teaching… indeed we are rendering our service overtime with our full cooperations and supports to our government to render our services at our best we catered all responsibilities given to us even to the extent that we are full of loans to ugment financial shortage most espicially to the needs at school room improvements we almost spend and exhaust our own efforts and means ,
    but when times of hardships and sickness we dont have assurance. We need health card for teachers too… and an increase .. We are looking foward for a positive response for our beloved VP Sarah Duterte- Carpio to look forward for good news for us teachers!God bless everyone!

    Yes its very true. That we teachers , need a salary increased like those in Police /Army. We too have a great contributions in our Nation Building.

  7. I agree with this comment that palakasan system should be eliminated. Kasi I’ve been struggling and hoping sa RQA since 2016 but until now, umabot na ng 2022 ay hnd pa rin ako employed ng Dep Ed. Wala akong kamag anak/backer sa Division office kasi. Still I’m hoping for this AY 2022-2023 na sana makapasok na rin ako as Teacher 1, lalo pa at may edad na rin ako.

  8. This is the system of Deped. PALAKASAN SYSTEM. Hoping you will be hired soon. Marami nang teachers Ang nagresign Kasi nandoon na sa Alaska.

  9. Sikapin mang magtaas noo ng mga guro, laylay naman ang pitaka dahil sa utang. May naisip ako, baka lang naman po pwedeng itaas yung minimum take home pay ng mga guro sa 15K, di man natin sila mapigilang mangutang, at least di na sila hahabulin nung mga nagpapautang kapag sagad na sila at alang makukuha from our teachers. Sana may marating yung aking insight, at sana po ay di masamain at opinyon ko lang naman po ito. Salamat po mahal na pangulo at ikalawang pangulo. Kasama na po yung nagbabasa at nakikibasa, salamat na rin po sa inyo. Joke lang

  10. Free hospitalization to teachers and their family even when retired and college scholarship to their children …malaki man o maliit ang sweldo ..tiyak di na mangungutang ang teachers pag ganito

  11. Everyday exhausted from classes.this profession is an abuse.wala kaming Bahay 3 anak ako.kasi napag isipan ko pag nangloan Ako para mgkabahay wla na Akong salary sukli nalng Wala namn kaming makain napakamahal Ng bilihin.huhuhuhuhu Ang sakit Naman parang wla na Akong dignidad nito

  12. Sana Naman Po tumaas Ang salary Ng mga guro para makaahon sa utang, Yung ibang propesyon tinatamasa na nila Ang magandang benipisyo guro na lng Ang Hindi. Ma’am Sara Duterte Ikaw Ang aming pag-asa…

    for years, we teachers have been waiting and praying for salary increase. Many presidents and DepEd sec had passed but until now, it’s just a promise. I hope this time, the issue of salary increase for teachers would be a reality. PLEASE…listen to our voices…give justice to us..🙏🙏🙏

  14. Sana po makita ninyo ang totoong mga teachers na =nagbubuhos ng buhay para sa pagtuturo. Sana bigyan ninyo ng chance na ma promote po kami . Hindi po ang mga papers na pinasa at ipinapasa ng mga nag papapromote ang magpapatunay ng kanilang commitment sa pagtuturo. Hanggang papel lang po ang karamihan sa kanila. Lalong lao na sa mg abagong pang na hired at binigyan agad ng promotion dahil daw “qualified ang mga papers” Kung sanay alam ninyo ang totoo. Kung sanay mabigyan ninyo ng pansin na marami din kami na naghahangad ng promotion ngunit hindi nabibigyan ng chance dahil hindi din kami binibigyan ng chance na magawa ang mag gawaing nakatutulong sa promotion. Piling pili lang po ang binibigyang chance. Sana makita ninyo ang totoo. sana maging totoo ang T7 na hindi na kami nahihirapan pa.
