Teachers Salary Increase is Gatchalian’s Top Priority Bill

Upgrading the salary of public school teachers is the priority of Senator Sherwin Gatchalian in the 19th Congress.

Gatchalian filed several education-related bills but he said that the bill that aims to raise the pay of teachers is crucial.

“Kasabay ng mga kailangang pagbabago upang mapahusay natin ang kalidad ng edukasyon sa bansa ay ang pagtaas ng sahod ng ating mga guro upang maitaas natin ang kanilang moral at itaguyod ang dignidad ng kanilang hanay,” Gatchalian said.

In his proposed Teacher Salary Increase Act, he seeks to upgrade the salary grades of Teachers I, II, and III one grade higher.

Gatchalian introduced a resolution to review the implementation of the K to 12 Curriculum.

Together with these are proposals aimed at realizing education recovery with the Academic Recovery and Accessible Learning Program Act which will focus on competencies in Language, Mathematics and Science.

  1. Thank you Sen. Gatchalian. I have been in the teaching profession for 29 years,. Teacher III at that but the salary I receive (32,111.00) is not enough to meet the family’s cost of living. The mandatory deductions/contributions like GSIS, Philhealth which has just increased plus the tax withheld are almost one fourth of the amount deducted in my take home pay. Because of these facts other family needs are being sacrificed like schooling particularly medical concerns. In order to meet other expense I resorted to apply for a loan, reloan and loan from PLI’s. I think most of the teachers have the same plight as mine. With your proposed salary increase I am grateful that you give preference to us, teachers. Somehow if approved and effected immediately the teachers specially those who are family persons can have a good sleep and can so focus on our tasks.
