Sara Duterte to focus on welfare of teachers, DepEd non-teaching personnel

Presumptive Vice President Sara Duterte has promised to look after the welfare of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) teaching and non-teaching personnel once she assumes office in July this year.

Duterte expressed concern about the status of some teachers who are “deep in debt” due to the presence of loan sharks within the agency.

“That is the sad reality for our teachers. I saw it when I was the mayor of Davao City,” Duterte said.

Mayor Sara narrated that a teacher who is not from Davao City approached her office and asked for help about her loan.

She said she was saddened upon knowing the teacher only received a salary of PHP1,000 per month as the huge part of her income went to her loans.

“They were enticed by companies who offered them loans. They were paying big interest rates,” Duterte said.

“That is where the sad story is. How you can expect the teachers to work religiously if they are confronted with such a problem,” she said.

Duterte expressed concern that teachers bombarded with personal problems could affect the quality of instruction in schools.

“I only have six years to work with you and to improve your welfare and the quality of education in our country,” Duterte said.

“I am soliciting your support that we may come up with something concrete to improve the welfare of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the DepEd, and see a better country with learners that are disciplined and patriotic,” Duterte said.

She also mentioned her commitment to producing skilled learners during her stint as DepEd secretary.

    Request po namin na sana alisin na lng ang NQESH exam. Ibalik na lng po ung ranking based sa accomplisment ng isang school head. Thank u po mam Sarah♥️

  3. Mother tongue po dapat iisa na lang
    Napaka hirap intindihin ng ibang linguahe kahit mismo mga bata nag rereklamo di naman lahat tubo sa lugar na yun kahit mismo taga roon sa isang lugar hirap din kasi bawat baryo ibang linguahe

    1. that is correct para sa akin ibalik na lang ang isang linguahe na mag focus na lang sa Filipino mas marami pang matutunan ang mga kabataan kasi pag pumunta sila sa ibang lugar mas marami nakakaintindi ng tagalog tama po ba. Hirap ang mother tongue.

  5. Sana ibalik ang dating para an ng Gawain ng pag teachers tulad noon Na naghahanda lang kami Sa dapat naming ituro, gawin ang lesson plan, pagtutoro Sa inihandang topic Sa araw ba yon, mag records Sa mga output, mag compute ng grades at gawin ang cards or form 137 at Turuan ang mga bata kung paano ang tamang pag lilinis at tamang ugali hindi lang tungkol Sa subject ang dapat matutunan. Sana alisin Na yong mga paper works Na hindi dapat mga guro ang ugma gawa upang magkaroon ng malaking panahon Sa pag presyo are ng mga gawain Na dapat ituro at magkatoon din ng tamang tulog at panahon Sa mga kanilang pamilya. Upang mga anak nila ay hindi napabayaan at mga partner Sa buhay nila hindi magka hanap ng iba. At sana e minimize and mga seminar at ang INSET sana para lang Sa mga bagohang guro hindi Sa mga datihan . AAt sana alisin Na yong subject Na pabalik balik at ang oras ng mga bata Sa klase dapat hanggang alas kwarto lang ng hapon kasi yong magpa lakaw pa pauwi Sa bundok ay hindi gagabihin..maraming salamat Sa lahat Na bomoto Sa kay BBM at kay Mam Sarah

  7. NQESH exam should not only the basis for the promotion of Principal position. There are school heads who have performed much better than principals but they dont have the chance to be promoted because they did not passed the principals test. sad reality
