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.
