Senate Bill pushes a Salary of P42,099 for Teachers



A Senate Bill was filed to upgrade the minimum salary grade level of public school teachers. Senator Angara has been pushing this bill to be approved so that teachers would have enough means to support their families. From salary grade 11, he wants to bring it higher to salary grade 19 which will give a salary of P42,099.00 to entry-level teachers.


Senate Bill 135

AN ACT UPGRADING THE MINIMUM SALARY GRADE LEVEL OF TEACHERS FROM SALARY GRADE 11 TO 19

     Public school teachers are among the most underpaid workers, given their workload and
role in the society. Despite the fact that they are heralded as molders of our children’s future
and second parents to our children, public school teachers receive a basic salary that does not
equate to their contribution. Our teachers are considered to be the heart of the educational
system. Hence, the government needs to give priority to their welfare and interests.

   
     The low salaries received by our public school teachers have been a major disincentive
for them to improve their skills in teaching and pursue further education and training. More so,
our public schools have failed to attract the best and the brightest graduates from the top
colleges and universities because of low salary levels, preventing our public education system
from benefiting from the knowledge and expertise of outstanding teachers. Especially with the
recent implementation of the K-12 law, having inspired and capable teachers is probably one of
the best investments our government could make.

     In this regard, this bill seeks to raise the minimum salary grade level of teachers from the
current Salary Grade 11 to 19. With this increase in salaries, more qualified and competent
educators will be attracted to teach in public schools. Definitely, this will greatly help in
motivating our teachers to strive for excellence in their field and thus, improve the quality of
education in the public school system.

For the abovementioned reasons, approval of this bill is earnestly urged.

SONNY ANGARA

    1. Tama ka sir. Kasi mostly yung ibang teacher is hindi enough or hindi ganon kaganda ang quality ang patuturo. Puro taas sahod lang ang gusto. Dapat globally competitive yung pagtuturo para matibay ang maging foundation ng student para sa mga succedding years pa

    2. The holistic growth of a child is not merely based on what teachers can offer to them.. Yes, basically teachers are the ones who provide learning (on basic subjects).. but a child's success is a shared responsibilities of the parents (most especially), the child himself, teachers (as the instrument) and the community as well. (your word MOSTLY di po ako agree jan)

      Delete
    3. consider also the CHILD PROTECTION POLICY. teachers' hands are tied in disciplining the learners. discipline is the foundation of learning.i am against corporal punishment. but you cannot force the learners to make assignment or submit projects. Misbehaving learners in class usually distract classes. and they cannot be reprimaded or punished for misbehaviors or else kasalanan ni teacher

    4. sorry bru students now a days are very different before while noon wala pang gadgets cellphones ,computers etc but now kakaiba na ang behavior nila towards basic education walang pkialam sa mundo because their attention is linked to gadgets not the lesson anymore.ako i am 32 years in the service handling math, science and english for HS basi sa experience ko nako very bad impression.ako kumanta, sumayaw, tumambling kahit ano basta lang makinig sila pero after 10 min wla na rin back to gadgets again... so kailanself discipline yan on the part of students. The role of the teacher is only to teach them. acquiring basic knowledge lies on them...

  5. Arangkada ni Angara. Nakalimutan na nya yata yung TRAIN Law nya.

    You are focusing on instant gratification for teachers. There’s so much to improve in the quality of our education system. To be honest, compared to entry level on most private companies, teachers on public schools are not underpaid. (not to mention, the number of days-off they get in a year). Don’t get me wrong, they are valuable and they should be taken care of. At some point they deserve increase but, let it come with individual upskilling.

    The quality of education begins with the quality of educators. Invest in their trainings and professional advancement. While those do not get into their pay right away, I’m sure they will be very happy with the results.

    Kung makakapg suggest ako sa mga senador, unahin nyong pag isipan yung nga hindi makapag aral sa malalayong probinsya. Yung mga tumatawid pa ng bundok at ilang ilog para lang makapasok sa school. UNAHIN NYO SILA KAHIT DI SILA BOTANTE!

  6. I've been working in an Esl industry where we can get a monthly salary of a public school teacher or more than than in just our first cutoff. When you work harder you can get more than what you deserve. The more the efficient a person is, the higher the salary he/she gets.

  9. Maybe you should put yourselves in our shoes first before uttering such words.We even sacrifice the time that we need to give to our families just to meet all the paper works.We work over time but we are not paid for that.We spend our money to buy our materials for everyday teaching.More than half of our salary napupunta sa school kasi we love our job and we wanted to give our best so to meet all the things needed and for the love that we have for our children.Maybe it's time that the government will also think of us just like what President Roa Duterte did for the soldiers. We are also fighting battles everyday.not by using guns but using our mind and strength to teach the school children.

  12. Mas maganda siguro kung di na lang i announce yan habang wala pa. Kapag nangyari na saka mo ipagsigawan Angara na ikaw ang may akda ng bill na yan na naging batas. Sa ganung style mas hahangaan ka. Kapag naisabatas na sabihin mo ganito, "ALAM NIO DI KO YAN INANOUNCE KASI GUSTO KO KAYO SORPRESAHIN, SAKA AYOKONG MAGPAPOGI LANG SA INYO, KAYA NGAYUNG NAISABATAS NA, PABAYAAN NIO NAMAN NA IANOUNCE KO NA NA AKO ANG MAY AKDA NYAN." Oh ha, kayong mga kandidato ganyan gawin nio. Kapag nagawa nio yan, sa susunod eh hindi nio na kailangang sumuyo samin automatic na ang boto sa inyo. Tigilan nio na kakapangako. Kumilos na lang kau ng kumilos tas kapag me nagawa na eh saka nio na lang ireport. Id rather vote for someone who reports his/her accomplishments than someone who promises the future.

  18. I think the increase should also take into consideration those teachers who are teaching in far-flung areas, they are the ones who deserve an increase. Sorry, pero may nakikita akong teachers na halos araw-araw selfie lang eh. If materials ang dahilan kaya nauubos sweldo, eh dapat mas e-prioritize yung mga gamit, facilities, saka na yung increase sa salary, kung mg increase man, di yung SG 19 kasi, SG 16 would be doable, kasi nga entry-level.

  19. you don't know as well na may mga paaralan na sa liblib na lugar sa mga baryo. kahit din malayo basta na assign doon ung teacher cla na lahat ung gumagasto sa mga estudyante. may paaralan doon wala nmn makain ung mga bata nasa sweldo ng teacher ung pinapakain sa mga bata.. also ung pagtaas ng sahud di ibig sabihin yayaman na kundi mas maayus na ung materiales ng pagtuturo tulad ng projector at suplays para sa pagtuturo. akala niyo nasa bulsa namin ung sahod namin?? hindi.. nasa mga bata un.. kaya tinawag na underpaid... ung research nla kung walang books kmi tumutulong sa wifi para maka online man lang cla makita ung website at makapag research. alam nyo lang ata ung nakkta nyo sa kmjs na mga bata nahihirapan. teachers din kc sweldo namin oara sa pamilya nasa mga studyante din nahahati..

  21. buti pa kayo taon taon tumataas ang sahod samantala kami buhay at sarili rin kalusugan nakasalalay sa pagiging nurse..wala pa s kalahati sa sahod ninyo mga teacher ang sahod ng mga nurses.may salitang workload,understaff,puyat,naglalabas din naman kami ng sariling pera pra rin s needs nmin s duty,kami ang inuutusan,kami ang gumagawa ng paraan para matugunan ang first aid ng pasynte habang wala pa anh doctor,kami ang iniiyakan ng mga pamilya ng may sakit at higit sa lahat kami ang pilit na BUMUBUHAY sa pasyente na nagaarest habang nakikita mo ang pamilya ng pasyente umiiyak sa harapan mo at nagmamakaawa na buhayin ang kanilang pasyente.. maybe we are not in the same shoes, and maybe without your guidance of teacher hindi kami gragaraduate.. but still kami parin ang gumawa ng paraan bilang estudyante para makapagtapos at sarili parin namin effort at the end of the day.dealing with life is not enough for us being left behind sa pagtataas ng sahod.kung kayo ginusto nyo magturo, kami rin ginusto namin ito at nasa puso nmin.. We as nurses kailangan din namin ang mapansin para rin sa sarili namin pamilya..

  25. Yes, we might be needing the increase but what we needed most are classrooms, lesser number of students in each class, more teachers, proper and quality books, health insurance and other benefits for teacher's needs...

  28. We teachers do consider not only for the classroom expenses and materials in teaching everyday also, we consider our pupils who do not have basic school supplies like pen and paper. Ang hirap magturo lalo na kapag nasa public school ka that is almost of your class is poor and we teachers kahit na magagalit dahil responsibility yan ng parents eh wala kaming ibang choice kundi magprovide nlg. If we could provide more than we have na hinuhugot namin sa kakarampot na sweldo what more if we will be given the chance to be paid of what we deserve. Why people are bashing that teachers are not doing their job and is not deserving to have a high salary? My gosh. Subukan niyo pong mag apply in a far flung area and that is you need to travel 6-7 hours then may makakasalubong ka pang mga rebelde na nanghihingi ng makakain saka niyo po sabihin sa min na hindi kami deserving mabayaran ng wasto ng gobyerno. ����

  30. I've been reading the posts and replies here. I just would like to mention that teachers, tagged as unsung heroes really exemplify such. We have been the teachers of all the others professionals. Pag natapos ang ibang professionals ng trabaho, they can rest, but teachers even manage to take home extra work just to prepare for the next day. Kapag hindi natututo ang mga bata, kami ang sinisisi. We even do home visitations para imotivate ang mga students. Ipinatatawag ang mga magulang, nguit hindi dumadating ang iba. In the end, ppunta sila para magreklamo dahil bagsak. Kami rin po ang iniiyakan ng mga magulang. Pag walang baon ang mga students namin, we even do charity work. Bukod sa stress sa trabaho, dala pa din sa bahay ang sama ng loob at stress sa mga hndi gumagalang na mga students and even ilang mga hindi nakakaunawang tao. Tapos ssabihin po ng ilan na hindi dapat unahin ang kapakanan ng mga guro? Pag election, buhay namin ang nakataya. pag pumalya, kami ang sisisihin? TInatawid ang mga bundok para magbigay kaalaman. Minsan pa, ang tingin ng iba, puro mangungutang. Tapos sasabihin po nila hindi workloaded ang guro at hindi underpaid? Nasaan po ang hustisya?

  34. While reading the comments, nakakalungkot na kung ijudge ng iba ang mga teachers ay napakababa, D po ba natin naisip that teachers are the ones who are molding the future generations. Ika nga nila, walang nurse kung wala si teacher, walang doktor kung wala si teacher. Karapatan din naman ng teacher ang mabigyan ng tamang pasahod para makapambayad ng mga utang.. And lahat po halos ng tao ay may utang..hindi lang po si teacher. If the salary of the teacher will increase, for sure, teachers will prefer to stay and serve our country. Pero pag hindi binigyan ng pansin, expect that some of our teachers will find a greener pasture.
