– Public school teachers’ salary is set to increase by P15,000 

– The bill will cover salary increase and benefits for public school teachers in all levels including those who teach in technical and vocational schools

For the teachers hired for the first time, they will be given a one-year tax exemption, and teachers who have been in the profession for 15 years will be given pension fund.

– The bill is also to attract highly qualified teachers to serve in government schools

Public school teachers’ salary will be increased by P15,000 as a bill filed in the House of Representatives responds to their appeal on wages and benefits.

House Bill No. 195 is set to cover an across-the-board salary increase and benefits for teachers in all elementary, secondary, and tertiary public schools including that of technical and vocational schools. The bill aims to attract highly qualified teachers to work in government schools.

“The responsibility of molding a child to become a productive Filipino citizen lies heavily in the hands of a teacher. This is the delicate duty that teachers have committed in their line of work being intimately connected with building the nation’s future. Despite this, however, existing laws are still unresponsive to their plight of enduring a measly salary as compensation for their work,” said Deputy House Speaker Romero “Miro” Quimbo on Sunday, who also authored the bill.

Quimbo added that even the Republic Act No. 4670 or the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers being enacted, the social and economic status of teachers and their living and working conditions have either stayed the same or have worsened.

The salary increase of the public school teachers will be regardless of their position and employment status, and will be based on Department of Education’s existing policies on merit selection and promotion.

For the teachers hired for the first time, they will be given a one-year tax exemption, and teachers who have been in the profession for 15 years will be given pension fund.

The 16th Congress administered by Former President Benigno Aquino III failed to pass the Salary Standardization Law (IV) which was supposed to benefit 1.6 million government workers.

President Rodrigo Duterte, for his part, earlier announced that he will increase the salary of teachers after implementing an incremental increase for the military.

This is despite budget secretary Benjamin Diokno’s warning that it will be difficult to increase the military’s pay given other financial concerns with the huge government debt on military pension fund included. 

Despite the Senate and the House of Representatives, passing different versions of their proposal both still failed to agree on the adjustment of the pension rates of retired military and uniformed personnel, and the increase of salary of the active members in the service.

  1. This is, definitely, good news. However, good as it may seems, where will the government get the budget? I wish also that as teachers' pay increases so also the increase in the facilities of all public schools.

  3. Marami naman talagang pera ang Pilipinas kaya lang, napunta lamang ang mga ito sa corruption. Kaya ngayon nga parang inuusig na ni PDigong ang mga ahensya at itinatanong kung saan na napunta ang pera para sa mga proyekto specifically sa Senior High. school implementation. Nagkandaugaga na siguro ang mga school heads ngayon sa paghahanap ng documentation sa mga pinapagawa pang mga buildings and facilities

  19. Halos di na siguro kami makahinga sa daming work. Paper works, accomplishing daily and monthly reports, conducting programs, doing research, attending seminars and trainings, daily making of lesson plan, keeping records and files, constructing instructional materials daily, teaching all subjects, joining community programs and etcetera. Those works to be done daily every month for every year. Damn! Now tell me we do not deserve this. Hoping it won't disappoint us again!

  21. Increase ang sahod increase din ang facilities sa school. More buildings sana. Ang hirap ng walang conjusive classroom para sa mga bata.

    Interms sa promition, sana same na tayo sa PNP mass promotion. Hindi lang yong kong sino ang may kapit sa office siya lang ung ma popromote. Kawawa naman ung ilang years na sa service teacher 1 parin. God is good. Simula na talaga ng pagbabago.

  23. Fellow teachers this is yet another house bill made to increase our salary but it doesn't mean mapapasa nga. We know for a fact that there are many legislators are against these kinds of bills. Reasons are vested interests and corruption... Magdiwang at magsaya na lamang kung nasa ating kamay na ang 15k na ito. In the meantime, makuntento muna sa kung ano tinatanggap natin at patuloy pa rin "mamaluktot sa kumot na maigsi" Mahirap umasa at pag nabigo tiyak napakasakit. If they really want change for the betterment of teachers executive order agad.
