BBM proposes 25 percent hike in minimum pay of public elementary and secondary teachers

Sen. Marcos proposes 25 percent hike in minimum pay of public elementary and secondary teachers

Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. has vowed to lift public school teachers from the borderline of poverty threshold.

This developed as Marcos filed a proposed measure to increase by 25 percent the monthly minimum salary of public school teachers.

Senate Bill No. 109 seeks to upgrade the present minimum Salary Grade 11 (SG 11) level to SG 15 level of public elementary and high school teachers.

If the bill is enacted into law, the present P18,594 (SG 11) minimum salary of the teachers will be raised to P24,887 (SG 15).

The salary grade level of those occupying higher positions shall also be adjusted accordingly. “As a result, the economic and social status of public school teachers across the country will be improved,” Marcos said.

Under Section 4 of the bill, the pay grade level upgrade will cover all public elementary and secondary levels, whether national or locally funded, including those in technical and vocational schools and state universities and colleges.

Marcos said that while the Department of Education continuously receives the largest share in the national budget of the country, the minimum salary of public school teachers remain lower compared with the salary of other professions.

“Worst, most (teachers) are in the borderline of poverty threshold,” said Marcos.

He said the Constitution itself recognizes the enormous contribution of the teaching profession, which requires great sacrifice and unparalleled dedication to reach out and impart one’s knowledge and experience to young minds.

“This is a fitting gesture of gratitude to our modern day heroes in public education,” he said.

    1. Maraming salamat po Pres. BBM. May i also suggest to provide us free medical and insurance kung d naman po kalabisan dahil lahat po ng public school teachers ay d nakaka avail ng mga medical expense at insurance sa dami ng bayarin at binabayaran. Hindi napo nila inaalintana ang mga nararamdaman dahil sa panghihinayang na gumastos para dito. Which is very important na mapanatili ang kalusugan at kasiguruhan ng sarili. Upang mas mapabuti pa ang pagtuturo. Good health is also happy life and job. God Bless po sa buong pamilya MARCOS. The LEGACY may continue..

      1. Yes po ❤️ I agree that teachers health insurance not only Phil health because I time of sickness if we are in private hospital just like my husband before he retire an illness that I don’t expect to happened a total gastrictomy operation was done. ..we spent millions ..now zero balance coz we have to wait 5 year pa mag pension

  5. I have high regard on you Mr. President. You are the one we teachers have long been waiting for. May God keep you safe and healthy..

  6. Alfredo D. Trinidad

    Inaasahan nmin Mr. President na maisasakatuparan na ito ngayon. Nndyan na kyo at hndi na isyu ang politika pra maisagawa at mging ganap na batas ito! Maraming salamat po.

  7. I was raised by my grandfather who always believed in the capacity of Marcoses! Since then, I knew YOU will come back and proved to every Filipinos how great your leadership are! Please DO IT AND PROVE IT! We want to feel value and we’ll compensated.

  8. Not to lose your essence of your comments fellow teachers. Pero this was vowed 2013 when he was a senator, and was used already to get the peoples votes and trust.. Now that he won nasaan na.. Masaya Tayo na SI VP Sara ginawang Deped Secretary Kasi during campaign sya din nagsabi how she knows the burden of public school teachers who are full of loan at sinasangla Ang ATM. Pero ngayung NASA Pwesto na sa big nya MISMO nanggaling they cannot do salary increase Kasi maraming Private schools magsasara Kasi mauubusan nang teachers Kasi Lilipat sa Public schools. Eh Wala Naman problema duon. Kasi una..
    Private schools are blessed with Facilities that Public schools don’t have
    Teachers in the private schools salary depends on learners tuition not from the Government
    Private school teachers are on probation status ibig sabihin pwede Sila mag hire teachers from rooster of thousands of applicants in RQA
    Once teachers from Private schools transfer to public it means promotion and good salaries for them because they are starting and has not yet pawned their atms
    Eh Ang Sa public schools lahat nun Wala… At Wala na sahod karamihan Kasi deficit na
    . Nasaan Ang puso VP Sara, Deped Secretary at President BBM..
    Isa rin ba sa Pangakong Politiko pero walang Will to do…
