DepEd to hire 10k teachers in 2023
The Department of Education (DepEd) is planning to hire at least 10,000 teachers in 2023, spokesperson Atty. Michael Poa said.
DepEd has reminded schools to fill up their vacancies to have an adequate workforce of teachers in the school year 2022-2023 while the hiring is ongoing.
“Gusto lang natin paalalahanan ang ating mga paaralan na to fill up na ‘yung ating mga teaching positions. Kung ilan’ yung planong i-hire, next year we are planning – at least as far as the budget is concerned –we are planning to hire 10,000 teachers. As to yung sa kailangan, I don’t have the exact figures right now but next year definitely, we aim to hire 10,000 teachers,” he added.
Poa also said DepEd is committed in finishing construction of classrooms.
“Noong 2021, marami kasing naging problema. Hindi na-utilize ‘yung budget fully because nagkaroon talaga ng problema nung pandemya due to the several lockdowns hindi natutuloy ‘yung construction,” he said.
“Confident naman kami na matatayo namin ‘yung mga classrooms na gusto namin itayo as planned per budget,” he added.
