Based on the presented tables, it is very obvious that teachers are struggling financially every month given the cost of living nowadays and their basic needs now cost higher and higher.

It is hereby reasonable that teachers should be receiving a higher amount of salary from the government. A salary of not less than Php 30,000 for entry level will give a huge positive impact on them and their families. Hence, a more positive teaching outlook will soon be evident.

  1. Dear Ma'am Secretary Briones, the DepEd ARMM now BARMM teachers have not received the 3k anniversary bonus because they alleged that we are included in GAA. How true is it? Are we not part of DepEd?
    Thank you for your reply.
