DepEd plans hiring 10K teachers next school year

DepEd plans hiring 10K teachers next school year

The Department of Education is eyeing to hire around 10,000 teachers for School Year 2023-2024, spokesperson Atty. Michael Poa said.

“We have already issued a memorandum around end of [August] to fill up all teaching items na existing sa ating field offices ngayon para po talaga siguro ma-reinforce natin ‘yung teaching complements. Next year nga, we’re planning to hire around 10,000 teachers,” he said in a Super Radyo dzBB interview.

Poa said that hiring 10,000 teachers next school year is doable pending the approval of the proposed budget for fiscal year 2023.

“We have to look at our budget constraints and of course, ‘yung application process. Hindi naman po ‘yan we just hire and hire without screening and having the application process. So, I think, realistic naman po ‘yung 10,000, although of course, we would’ve wanted more but talaga pong may budget constraints tayo,” he said.

“Tingnan po natin. We cannot solve these problems overnight or in over maybe a year’s time. Pero talagang ginagawa natin ang makakaya natin para unti-unti, talagang maresolba na natin ‘yung tinatawag natin na perennial problems sa ating mga paaralan,” he added.
