PRESIDENT- elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. promised to enhance the salaries of teachers in all public schools after being elected President. He also specifically mentioned free teacher training and scholarships for the children of teachers. Even in the Senate, presidential frontrunner Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. pushed for a measure that would raise the salaries of teachers from grade 11 to grade 15, one of his primary campaign issues now that he ran for a high position in the country.

Back then, Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos introduced Senate Bill No. 3106, titled “An Act to Increase the Minimum Salary Grade of Public School Teachers from Salary Grade 11 to Salary Grade 15,” on January 24, 2012. Unfortunately, the bill failed to pass on the first reading, prompting him to introduce Senate Bill No. 109, which aimed to enhance teacher pay from salary grade 11 to salary grade 15.

We must give our teachers our full support because they are the molders of our children at school, shaping them into excellent, responsible, and productive citizens who will become future leaders in our country added Marcos. Remember that following the SMNI presidential debate, he stated that one of his goals for education is to provide teachers with adequate perks and salaries.

Marcos stated that  teachers need to acquire appropriate money and that their pay would not be delayed. It also gives teachers all of the legal benefits they need to worry less about themselves and their families. “Not simply financial support in education, retraining, and refresher courses to give students the most up-to-date information,” he said.

In an interview with Atty. Trixie Angeles’ show, “Luminous Trixie,” Marcos remarked he’ll do the same thing he did in Ilocos Norte, which was to put seed money in the school so that teachers wouldn’t be in debt. Marcos mentioned his support for all teachers several times during his rally, including improving the quality of life for their families, providing scholarships to their children, and modernizing the Philippine educational system.

With this promising future for the teachers, a new hope blossomed to the four corners of the classrooms and with fingers crossed these pledges be fulfilled soon for the betterment of the educators lives.
