Good day fellow Teachers. We’ve been together for three years now.

We are always there for each other as we dream of a smooth and productive school year. Together we will withstand any challenges. And now, we have uploaded our Week 3 – 2nd Quarter Daily Lesson Log | August 26 – 30, 2019 DLL

And now as we start on another journey with our students and new challenges that are yet to come, we shall stick together as one – a solid DepEd Teachers Club!
No Teacher left behind.
This week’s News that matter:
Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto filed House Bill No. 3449 : An Act Institutionalizing The Grant Of A Teaching Supplies Allowance For Public School Teachers And Appropriating Funds Therefor. It was already referred by the House Committee on Rules to the Committee on Basic Education and Culture last August 7, 2019. In her explanatory note, it says:
Republic Act No. 4670 otherwise known as the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers mandates that the salaries of public school teachers “shall be such as to insure teachers a reasonable standard of life for themselves and their families. ” Unfortunately, the salaries of public school teachers are currently bound by the Salary Standardization Law (SSL), hence, compensation increases would be subject to comparisons with the qualifications, skills and difficulties of other positions in the government. Thus,one of the urgent ways to respond to the clamor of our public school teachers for much needed support is to grant them with additional benefits in the form of cash allowances which would not be subject to the SSL.
This bill, therefore, institutionalizes the grant of a Teaching Supplies Allowance for the 840,0002 public school teachers and at the same time increases the cash allowance currently appropriated in the DepEd budget by 185% from the current P3,500 to P10,000 per teacher per school year. In order to come up with a deficit neutral measure, this bill proposes to initially source the additional funds from the savings of the National Government and thereafter, it shall be included in the General Appropriations Act under the DepEd budget. The grant of teaching supplies allowance shall also be exempt from income taxes.
Teachers should be given priority attention, they being contributors to the mental development and the formation of moral and ethical values of our youth. With this additional allowance, the burden on public school teachers will be alleviated and their working conditions will certainly improve. Continue Reading.
In recognition of the vital role of our teachers in nation building, in every 5th day of October of every year, we celebrate “The World Teachers Day” to commemorate the hardships of our hardworking and passionate teachers. The government through Republic Act No.6686, as amended by R.A. No. 8441, authorizes the grant of annual Christmas Bonus and/or Cash Gift to national and local government personnel starting 1988 and by virtue of DBM NBC No. 2010-1 dated April 28, 2010, granting the Representation Allowance and Transportation Allowances or RATA.
Public teachers are the duty-bearers to mold the minds of our youth and to equip them with skills necessary for the attainment of national development. Teachers in practice exerts extra effort to provide the needs of their respective school. Wherein they have to bring home all the paper work i.e. lesson plan, check papers and create examination. There are some teachers, especially those who are in rural schools, have to do tasks beyond their duty and function.
Furthermore, some teachers trek mountains, travel distances just to go to their respective schools because of love and compassion for their noble profession. Also, they find themselves struggling to meet their basic needs and costs of utilities which continue to increase. As such, this measure seeks to institutionalize the mandatory payment of the 14th month pay for public-school teachers with the end view of further incentivizing and remember our teachers sacrifices and productivity, and to alleviate their financial plights.

The scarcity of affordable housing affects all sectors of society, especially our public school teachers. An independent survey revealed that public school teachers have no homes to call their own.
Majority of our public school teachers cannot afford to purchase their own homes at market prices since they earn a gross monthly income of PI0.000 or less. In addition to this, more than 20% of our public school teachers have unemployed spouses, and thus, bear the burden of providing for their families.
There had been efforts to solve this problem by providing for a special housing facility through the state pension fund. However, its implementation never fully materialized. Thus, it is imperative that we provide for a stable housing program for our teachers through legislation.
This bill seeks to institute a housing program for teachers by providing funds through loans at affordable interest rates and long-term repayment period. It also seeks to involve the private sector in providing housing units exclusively for teachers through the grant of fiscal incentives. Continue Reading.
Public school teachers often brave rain or shine just to be present in their respective classes. In rural areas, they also have to walk mountains and hills aside from facing harsh and extreme weather conditions in their daily trip to work.
These circumstances make public school teachers more vulnerable to different types of illnesses. Consequently, medical expenses will bite into their meager income. The bottom line, health of public school teachers is seriously compromised which will also compromise the health of their students.
Neglecting their need for medical allowance will also result in the neglect for the health of both teachers and their students.
In view of the foregoing, passage of this bill is hereby being earnestly sought.Continue Reading.
