Escudero to Deped: Release funds for physical classes

Senatorial Aspirant and Sorsogon Governor Francis Escudero urged the Department of Education to release funds for physical classes preparation.

Escudero issued the appeal following reports that teachers were spending their own money to finance their classrooms for the expansion of in-person learning.

“I don’t understand why teachers are getting into debt to fix their own classrooms when the DepEd has received a significant increase in its annual budget. Where is the P1 billion DepEd said will be distributed to public schools to support blended learning?” Escudero said in a statement on Friday.

“Para sa isang ahensiya na taon-taon ay pinakamalaki ang pondo, ayon sa Konstitusyon, nakakahiya naman yatang mga guro pa ang papagastusin natin sa pag-ayos ng mga classrooms nila,” he added.

This year, DepEd was given a budget of P631.77 billion, up by 6.34% from the agency’s P594.11 billion allocation in 2021.

Escudero added that the increase in DepEd’s budget can increase its Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses threshold from P15,000 to P50,000 for its field offices.

Deped allocated P1 billion for public schools to purchase television, speakers, laptops and other equipment needed to support blended learning.

    1. Yes po totoo yan sir/madam kasi ang focus lang naman ng COVID contingency budget eh para sa mga health kit and ang mga classroom readiness repainting sinages and instructional materials sa teacher na bulsa na nanggagaling.

    2. That’s true we teachers are the one who finance/ produce materials needed for thr preparation of face-to-face classes. By your own initiative, own money or thru donation. Pakapalan Ng Mukha kung Wala Kang pangtustos/ panggastos sa sarili mong classroom.

    3. Thank you very much Po Sir Senator Chiz Sobrang laki ng personal na gastos nmin in preparation for unlimited face to face.Masakit man sana isipin n Kung bakit kawawa kming mga guro.

    Yes.. Teachers are always begging support from deped, and yet they didnt have support. Teachers are always finnd ways just to beautify thier respective classroom. Others were lend money from bank or private individual that has a high rate. Hope senators has rigth one to regulate a law that teachers had an allowance alloted to each teachers to beautify thier room.

  3. Kung magbigay naman po nang budget for the classroom ang deped sana po kada guro po mabigyan at matapalan sa lahat nang gastos for preparing the classroom for face to face. Ang mangyayari po pag magbigay ang deped address nanaman for MOOE. Nako malabo ma tapalan at mabigyan ang mga guro. Gagastos talaga kami para mapaganada at maihanda ang aming classroom lalo nat may evaluation. Thank you po senator escudero for looking this problem.
