New DepEd Chief will push proposed 50k Teachers' Salary

 DepEd Chief Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara on Wednesday, July 3 promised to seek after recommendations that look for to extend the pay rates of teachers.

The approaching Office of Instruction (DepEd) secretary said he will ponder the proposition expanding the entry-level compensation of teachers to P50,000, saying he not as it were needs superior working conditions for instructors, but too progressed pay rates and benefits for them.

Angara, previous Senate committee on back chief, famous it is Congress that sets their compensations of government representatives, and has been pushing for that when he was still head of the board.

“So we will see and study that, but we are hundred percent in support for all of these teachers’ increases because we know that this really affects the quality of education. When teachers are inspired and you attract the best, the best and the brightest,” Angara mentioned in an interview on Radio DZBB. 

Angara said he will counsel the Office of Back (DOF) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) in examining recommendations to raise these teachers' compensations.

At the same time, Angara said he points to supply teachers superior working conditions by lessening their non-teaching assignments so they can center on their essential obligations.

Moreover, Angara said he is supporting the proposition to forbid the utilize of mobile phones and other gadgets inside classrooms.

“It would really be best if students are not distracted inside the classrooms,” he noted.

“It is also better to develop them to be critical thinkers…that is very important in the age of the internet,” he added. 

In the interim, Angara said he will permit Congress to wrap up talks on the proposed required Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) some time recently making any move.

He said he would fair hold up for the Senate and the House of Agents to choose on whether to resuscitate the ROTC noticing that there's still an “ongoing debate” on the issue.

“We are waiting. But for us, we will yield to whatever policy direction Congress sets,” he concluded.
