Medical Examination Fund for Teachers

The lawmaker mentioned that the lower house included a provision for the P500 annual medical examination fund for each public school teacher as mandated by the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers while the Senate included the P2.93 billion budget for the partial implementation of Cycle 7A of the National Budget Circular (NBC) 461 for 107 out of 144 State Universities and Colleges.
“President Duterte himself said he will increase salaries of teachers next. We now urge our fellow legislators, as they deliberate at the bicameral conference for the national budget, to ensure the inclusion of the substantial salary increase for teachers and other government employees, and rechannel the P75 billion pork barrel to fund the substantial salary increase and benefits of our government workers,” Rep. Tinio said in a statement on Monday.

“In the current draft of the National budget, teachers can only expect an increase in their salaries because of the 4th tranche of the Salary Standardization Law (SSL), which only amounts to an increase of P575 for Teacher I. The minimal increase has already been eroded by the rising prices of basic goods as the second tranche of the fuel excise tax due to the TRAIN Law is implemented,” Tinio added.
