The salaries of teachers should be raised, according to BBM’s awesome pledges

The salaries of teachers should be raised, according to BBM’s awesome pledges

The salaries of teachers should be increased because the major commodity prices are increasing. Their salaries are insufficient to meet the needs of their families. Because of their low incomes, teachers’ expectations may not be met, even if their salaries have increased a little. Teachers want a president who will raise their pay.

Marcos promised to enhance the salaries of teachers in all public schools after being elected President. He also offered free teacher training and scholarships for the children of teachers. Even in the Senate, presidential frontrunner Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. pushed for a measure that would raise the salaries of teachers from grade 11 to grade 15, one of his primary campaign issues now that he is running for a high position in the country.

Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos introduced Senate Bill No. 3106, titled “An Act to Increase the Minimum Salary Grade of Public School Teachers from Salary Grade 11 to Salary Grade 15,” on January 24, 2012. Unfortunately, the bill failed to pass on the first reading, prompting him to introduce Senate Bill No. 109, which aimed to enhance teacher pay from salary grade 11 to salary grade 15.

The bill was not passed yet again. Despite the setback, Marcos claimed that he will continue to promote the program and revise the design to improve the quality of life of teachers and inspire them to give the greatest quality services and education to their kids.

We must give our teachers our full support because they are the molders of our children at school, shaping them into excellent, responsible, and productive citizens who will become future leaders in our country added Marcos. Remember that following the SMNI presidential debate, he stated that one of his goals for education is to provide teachers with adequate perks and salaries.

Marcos stated that we should help teachers acquire appropriate money and that their pay would not be delayed. It also gives teachers all of the legal benefits they need to worry less about themselves and their families. “Not simply financial support in education, retraining, and refresher courses to give students the most up-to-date information,” he added.

Even in an interview on Atty. Trixie Angeles’ show, “Luminous Trixie,” Marcos said he’ll do the same thing he did in Ilocos Norte, which was to put seed money in the school so that teachers wouldn’t be in debt. Marcos mentioned his support for all teachers several times during his rally, including improving the quality of life for their families, providing scholarships to their children, and modernizing the Philippine educational system.

Teachers will sincerely hope and thank the president for prioritizing the increase in their salaries. Teachers are asking for the next president of the Philippines to have a complete heart and sympathy for teachers by boosting the salaries of teachers in a single lump sum, not in stages. The only way to survive this pandemic is for the salaries of teachers to rise. – Doki | Helpline PH
