According to news posted by abs-cbn in their official website on September 2, there is no provision for an increase in teachers’ salaries in the 2020 proposed expenditure plan despite having the biggest cut of the proposed budget.

DepED Secretary Leonor Briones however allayed concerns, saying DepEd is discussing ways to increase the salaries of teachers with other government agencies.

According to DepED, one method that the agency is looking at is faster promotions for teachers so they can have higher salaries.

The Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) meanwhile alleged that DepEd is not even acting on the proposal to increase teachers’ salaries. Raymond Basilio, ACT Secretary General, said the budget department is still waiting on DepEd to submit a proposal for the pay hike.

“Maraming mga teacher na matagal nang nakapako ang kanilang salary grade dun sa kanilang entry level position. Ang masakit marami sa mga guro kung ano ang position nila sa pagpasok, yun parin ang kanilang position hanggang sa pag-retire,” Basilio said.

The Secretary said DepEd is also proposing for additional benefits for teachers.
