Release of the 14th Month Pay for Public Teachers




EXPLANATORY NOTE

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 they 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 exert extra effort to provide the needs of their respective school. Wherein they have to bring home all the paperwork i.e. lesson plan, check papers and create the 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.

In light of the foregoing, immediate of the bill is earnestly sought.

  2. THE 13TH MONTH PAY SHOULD BE RELEASED ON MAY, NOT JUNE, BECAUSE THAT MONEY WILL BE USED FOR TUITION PAY AND OTHER EDUCATIONAL SUPPLY NEEDED BY THE CHILDREN AND FOR THE TEACHER ITSELF.
