Frugal teachers chipped-in amount to cover food expenses for school’s visitors

It so sad that in our country, frugal teachers chipped-in amount to cover for any activities in the school. Yes, it was true before in the early years and still true at present.

To recall, there was already a memo on this if I am not mistaken (I have not yet read it). If there was a memo on this, how come this is still practiced in many schools up until today?

Frugal teachers chipped-in amount to cover for the expenses in various activities. In most cases almost all activities involving the school and the district. It is sad to note that teachers can’t complain even if their money is not enough.

Activities involving the school and the district will always make a hole in our pockets. Yes, I am a teacher too and I know the way every other teacher feels during collection. Why does it have to be always the teachers? Why do we have to carry the burden all the time?

There is no sense that frugal teachers chipped-in amount to cover for the expenses all the time. As per budget, well don’t expect it. There’s not even enough budget for the supplies in the school MOOE.

Isn’t it the responsibility of the division to supply budget for their schools? If not, then shouldn’t they urge their higher ups to look down on our situations? The problem is that they never once took their feet off their thrones to come down and reach to us.

Sometimes, higher officials or supervisors were the ones who liked to have lavish food served. Well, this is not the case in all since supervisors differ in characters. It so happened that we experienced a PSDS who wanted to have lavish kinds of preparations.

Frugal teachers chipped-in amount to cover for the expenses in such events. Lavish food preparations that entails big amount of budget are there. Teachers should always have the option whether to go for it or not. Yet, in most cases they cannot complain – Alec | Helpline PH
