Salary Increase For Teachers Will Surely Come, DepEd Says
The Department of Education (DepEd) assured the public school teachers that the promised salary increase will surely come.
The public school teachers have been asking for a salary increase after the pay rate of military and other uniformed personnel have been doubled in 2018.
President Rodrigo Duterte said that the government is already working on the issue noting that there are millions of teachers in the Philippines.
Recently, an official of the Education Department assured the teachers regarding the expected salary hike.
DepEd Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan explained that DepEd can do nothing about the pay hike but the Cabinet members were already discussing the issue.
“Basta ang na-settle, tutuparin ‘yung pangako ng increase…” Yan ay nasa Gabinete na. Ang usaping ‘yan, ang desisyon when, how much, and so on will come from the President himself or his spokesperson,” Malaluan said.
A public school teacher is now earning P20,754 per months with P2,000 worth of Personnel Economic Relief Allowance (PERA).
PERA is a monthly allowance given to government workers because of the soaring prices of basic commodities.
