Increase teachers’ salary to attract more educators to teach in public schools – Lawmaker

Senator Juan Edgardo Angara emphasized the need for the government to attract more educators to teach in public schools.

Angara said this could be possible by increasing the entry salary grade level of teachers from Salary Grade 11 to 19.

“Public school teachers are among the most underpaid workers, given their workload and role in the society,” Angara said.

“Despite the fact that they are heralded as molders of our children’s future and second parents to our children, public school teachers receive a basic salary that does not equate to their contribution,” he added.

The senator saddened that the salary given in public schools made it least attractive to the best and the brightest graduates from top colleges and universities. 

This prevents the country’s public education system from benefiting from the knowledge and expertise of outstanding teachers.

Angara filed a bill that aims to attract more competent teachers in public schools and help motivate the country’s teachers to strive for excellence.

“Our teachers are considered to be the heart of the educational system. Hence, the government needs to give priority to their welfare and interests,” he said.

  1. Maraming kahalintud na mga bill noong mga nakalipas na congresses pero walang na-approve, hindi priority ng mga congressmen/senators at president ang mga guro. It is true that teachers are the primary implementors/Frontliners of deped policies/programs & not the high ranking officials of deped hence they should be cared off. Di ba Lahat tayong mga parents pag mag-enroll anak natin sa college – law, doctor o engineer ang request na curso pag MatAlino, teaching na lang pag average, at technical Kung mahina!
    Mr. Senator, kulitin mo mga kasamahan mo sa senado pag naging batas yan baka ikaw maging president sa susunod.

  2. Sana magkaroon ito nang katuparan ilang taon na tong panukala pero parating sinasabi walang budget.. pero di ba nila ramdam na sa Buong South east Asia at marahil sa Ibang panig nang Mundo sa Pilipinas may pinakamababang Sahod nang Guro. Tinawag na Noblest profession pero di pinapahalagahan Ang Kapakanan nila

    Trully a sad reality, many of my collegue whom i consider competent and passionate in teaching are already abroad living their deserve pay as a teacher.
    Hopefully magkatotoo ang mga batas para sa taas sweldo ng mga guro..
