Rep. Alonte files the "Bawas Non-Teaching Load Act" for Teachers



Another lawmaker in the person of Representative Marlyn Alonte is pushing for a bill that seeks to unburden public school teachers of non-teaching responsibilities to solve quality issues besetting basic education.

BiƱan City Rep. Marlyn Alonte said House Bill 5562, or the "Bawas Non-Teaching Load Act", provides that appropriate and qualified administrative personnel shall be responsible for the performance and discharge of non-classroom teaching functions and roles on campus so that teachers can better focus on classroom teaching.

Alonte proposed it in the wake of the bottom-scraping results of Filipino students' rankings in a global assessment of 79 countries.

The results of Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2018 showed that the Philippines scored 353 in mathematics, 357 in science, and 340 in reading, all below the average of participating Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries.

"Time has come for the beginning of the end of the administrative work overload of teachers, so they can focus on teaching, professional advancement, and work-life balance," Alonte said.
