 The Department of Education (DepEd) plans to employ about 10,000 teachers for the 2023-2024 school year, said its spokesman Atty. Michael Poa said on Sunday.

10k Teachers will be Hired

Atty. Michael Poa reiterated the plans for the coming year, admitting that one of the challenges the agency faces in the current school year is the lack of teachers, in addition to the school's lack of infrastructure and furniture.

“We have already issued a memorandum around end of [August] to fill up all teaching items na existing sa ating field offices ngayon para po talaga siguro ma-reinforce natin ‘yung teaching complements. Next year nga, we’re planning to hire around 10,000 teachers,” he said in a Super Radyo dzBB interview.

Poa was referring to Department of Education memorandum #76 p. Problems that arose when face-to-face classes resumed on August 22 include shortages of teachers and classrooms.

Poa said it was realistic  to employ 10,000 teachers next school year if the 2023 budget is approved.

“We have to look at our budget constraints and of course, ‘yung application process. Hindi naman po ‘yan we just hire and hire without screening and having the application process. So, I think, realistic naman po ‘yung 10,000, although of course, we would’ve wanted more but talaga pong may budget constraints tayo,” he said.

“Tingnan po natin. We cannot solve these problems overnight or in over maybe a year’s time. Pero talagang ginagawa natin ang makakaya natin para unti-unti, talagang maresolba na natin ‘yung tinatawag natin na perennial problems sa ating mga paaralan,” he added.

The 1987 Constitution mandates that the education sector, consisting of DepEd, TESDA, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and State Universities and Colleges (SUC), be given top budget priority.

In 2023, DepEd will receive P852.8 billion across the education sector, according to DBM.
