Education Sec. Briones to Teachers: More Benefits Come with Greater Responsibilities
As the government continues to improve their welfare through higher salaries and better benefits, Education Secretary Leonor Briones challenged teachers to be the “driving force” that would help uplift the quality of education in the country.
“As we increase the salaries and improve the terms of employment of our public school teachers, we expect our teachers to be the driving force to raise the quality of the country’s basic education,” Briones said during the 2019 World Teachers’ Day (WTD) in Cagayan De Oro City.
Briones told the thousands of teacher-attendees that the “biggest concern” of the DepEd is “education quality” where their role is very crucial. “While investing in education has produced major gains in access to education, the evidence is clear that the quality of our learning outcomes leaves much to be desired,” she added.
Recognizing that “there is so much work to be done,” for the education sector, Briones also reminded the teachers that “the fight for quality will require no less than a national effort, with our teachers at the forefront.”
Added Compensation, Improved Opportunities
Among the highlights of the recent WTD celebration is DepEd’s assurance of a new round of salary increase for state workers which include public school teachers following the Department of Budget and Management’s (DBM) completion of its study on benchmarking the salaries of government personnel.
Between the Salary Standardization Law (SSL) III from 2009 to 2012 and the SSL IV from 2016 to 2019, DepEd emphasized that the monthly basic salary of a Teacher I has increased from P14,198 to P20,754 – noting that there was no SSL was implemented from the years 2013 to 2015.
DepEd noted that apart from the government-mandated compensation and benefit for all employees — which amount to a total of P27,996 per month for entry-level teachers – public school teachers receive allowance accorded only to the department’s teachers: cash allowance (P3,500/year); Proportional Vacation Pay (P36,994.83 to P38,340.10 for SY 2018-2019); hardship allowance (15-25% of monthly basic salary); honoraria for teaching overload (25% of monthly basic salary); additional incentives/allowance from local government units (LGUs).
Additionally, DepEd said that Bicameral Committee version of the 2019 General Appropriations Bill (GAB) also included annual medical examination (P500/year) and 2019 WTD incentive (P1,000) for public school teachers.
Recognizing the need for teachers to have improved professional growth and opportunities, Briones also noted that DepEd is proposing to add new teaching positions of Teacher IV, Teacher V, Teacher VI, and Teacher VII with corresponding higher salary grades after the current items of Teacher I, Teacher II, and Teacher III.
“Napapansin namin at sinabi rin ng mga teacher, minsan nag-uumpisa silang Teacher I forever Teacher I na lang sila, maghihintay pa kung mayroong magre-retire (We notice and the teachers also say, sometimes they start Teacher I and they stay at Teacher I forever, waiting for someone to retire),” Briones said.
Briones said that this is the reason why DepEd made a proposal submitted to the DBM and the President on additional teaching positions with equally higher salaries depending on the performance. “If you do well, then you go up,” she added.
Given these, Briones reminded everyone in the DepEd of their vital role the delivery of quality basic education – as mandated by the Constitution. “Kung mayroong asenso, mayroon ding responsibilidad” (If there’s growth, there is also a responsibility),” she added.
Meanwhile, Briones challenged the teachers anew to “think of new and innovative ways” of teaching. “The battle for quality basic education will be fought and won at our classrooms, by our teachers,” she said. “Ultimately, it is in the classrooms where the day-to-day learning of our students happens,” she ended.

DepEd to Fund ‘Invisible’ Schools
DEPARTMENT of Education (DepEd) Secretary Leonor Briones said that President Rodrigo Duterte has promised to provide funding to help schools which are “invisible” or schools which have been left behind.
According to Briones, based on their latest inventory, there are more than 7,000 schools in the country which are “invisible” or those schools which only have two classrooms, dilapidated rooms, no books, no desks, among others.
“You have excellent schools here in Cagayan de Oro but I’m sure they are also schools in the far off barrios which might be considered, as I said, invisible, hindi nakikita,” Briones said.
She added that some of these schools can only be reached after climbing hills or crossing seas or rivers.
“The promise of the President… sabi niya I promise you, secretary, by the end of my term, we will take care of all those schools,” Briones shared.
Apart from providing assistance to “invisible” schools, Briones said DepEd will provide not just the learners but also the teachers tablets and computers as the education system is moving towards having electronic libraries.
“We recognize the challenge of the 21st century. We recognize the technological changes that are happening,” Briones said.
“So this is where we are going, like it or not, we have to deal with artificial intelligence and we have to make sure that artificial intelligence will not be a substitute for human intelligence,” she added.
At present, the country has more than 900,000 teachers, 37.8 million learners, 47,000 public schools, and 14,000 private schools.
