ALARMING TRUTH: DepEd Teachers are Breaking their Trust on the System and many wanted to Resign

ALARMING TRUTH: DepEd Teachers are Breaking their Trust on the System and many wanted to Resign

DepEd teachers are always known to be patient, loyal, workaholic and versatile. All-in-one package is the description we can call them ever since we learn from these good people. Even if time is changing and the learners do changed as well, these teachers remained as they were. Generations of teachers may come and go but the spirit they hold never change at all.

Yet, it seemed as today these DepEd teachers are starting to wear off. This is a very sad truth which in the same sense is also alarming. Many teachers complain about being underpaid yet their work is too much. The bulk of work adds up to all the stress they are dealing everyday.

Many teachers today are planning to resign from their current position. Most of them wanted to try their luck in other countries like Thailand, Japan and in other parts of the globe. This is too saddening to hear that it seemed that these teachers gave up already.

Most DepEd teachers think of it that way, but not all can push through because they do have loans still. Yet, they have the same complaint and that is teaching in their own country is not worth it. The salary opposed the efforts of the teachers. These teachers realized that their little increase is not even helping.

If you try to look at the Facebook feeds, you will come up with teachers resigning post in different regions. It can’t be help and it is now happening. Your beloved teachers are drained from the bulk of work with less compensation.

As a teacher myself, I too is now feeling this since the start of classes. Not to mention, teachers are now the talk of the town in all social media posts. Students are acting strange after the two-year modular learning. Teachers getting the blame from everything. It is tiring to hear and exhausting as hell.

Being a DepEd teacher is my long dream but after experiencing it, I say I am doubting my actions before. The truth is that DepEd teachers are already tired and they are starting to give up on this battle. – Avril | Helpline PH

    I am.already 57.years old wiling to go abroad coz the one year salary of a.teacher in the Phil is equivalent to.one.month to other country but I am.not technologically equipped.instead because the salary increase is vey clear.that just a promise.I am.planning to retired early coz.life.of being a teacher is too.stressful.

  2. That’s the truth..I just can’t understand why teaching is so stressful..I for one also want to exit from the stressful world of teaching..

  3. Yes po I totally agreed with you I am 50 years old and I am planning to have my early retirement soon … I am planning to go abroad probably in Japan, with God’s grace sana magkatotoo.

      Yes po. In grade 4, the learners can not write and read cursive, the teacher needs to write in printing, some can not read. After things are said, they would go to the teacher and ask ano un, ano daw? Para silang grade 1…a subject is taught not 50 minutes as required but rather 2 hours… patience n flexibility talaga ang baon ko araw araw for the learners sake… I think we better concentrate on 3 R first this quarter.

      1. Same experience po tayo. Na kakapagod nang husto ngayon. Parang Kinder at grade 1 pa rin handle ko gayong grade 4 na sila. 10 out of 33 can’t read, can’t add and subtract. 29 out of 33 non-numerates sa egma. Almost frustration din sa Phil-iri. Hayy kailangan na sigurong baguhin ang sistema ng DepEd. Ipinagpilitan PA kc yang MDL na Yan, hayaan ang result a……..

  4. The fact is stressful work with less compensation. Professional in position but less in compensation. How could it be effective in the service? More tasks lesser to receive, while some unprofessional in the service less tasks, more to receive. Is this the real world of the teachers? Inculcating minds of the youngs to become a better citizen of the world? Yet they become poorer at the end?

  5. My sentiments as a teacher applicant I got my teaching License last 2017 I am a unit earner, I taught in the private school and moved out of the private school to join the rqa in the public school been a substitute teacher in different schools for almost 4 years now , my rqa result is also at the top rank and my LET is 86 but its hard to get an item in the public schools here in our place… because if the tradition of hiring its not what you know but whom you know system…..there are plenty of qualified new teachers who wants to teach but sad to say they are not given any item as a teacher….and yet also some wanted to move out of the teaching field….

  7. due to the pandemic, our grade 7students had a hard time in coping up with the lessons, i told my teachers to teach them like they were grade 5 learners. i agree with the one who commented that the 3 Rs must be the concentration.

  8. Hanggang maraming bading sa itaas
    Hindi uunlad ang sistema…
    Pagpapaganda lng ang alam.
    Walang tunay na malasakit sa learning process..
    Sa GSIS naman, hangga’t hindi ka bedridden, hindi kp pwede magretiro kahit maysakit ka na..
    Mas masakit hindi pa mapahalagahan nagawa mo ng maraming taon..

  9. sana tanggalin na sa teacher ang mga coordinatorship nakadagdag sa stress lalo pag minamadali ng school head.wala nang focus sa mga bata,imbis na ituro sa pagbabasa.ang hirap naman nang ganito dahil malaki ang paperworks time kaysa pagtuturo.

    1. If and if only I don’t have much loans and I have also three little girls,no doubt I will leave also the system since that I have not seen ang changes and growth.I am teacher 3 for 3 yrs,planning to apply for MT but never achieve it.My salary is not enough to compensate the needs of my childrens,allowances from transpo,foods bills and things to buy for IMs and classroom.Leaders ears are close when it comes to our woes.I just prayed that I can look for a job abroad that will hire me and willing to pay first to my outstanding loans.

    Mabigyan lng Sana lahat ng mga teachers ng leave benefits at Hindi lng naka depende sa service credits.pano Kung ubos na at nagka sakit? Without pay na ..change in the system tlga dapat ..more consideration pa Sana.
