URGENT APPEAL FOR THE IMMEDIATE INCREASE OF SALARIES OF EDUCATION WORKERS IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR

URGENT APPEAL FOR THE IMMEDIATE INCREASE OF SALARIES OF EDUCATION WORKERS IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR

URGENT APPEAL FOR THE IMMEDIATE INCREASE OF SALARIES OF EDUCATION WORKERS IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR



We, education workers, students, parents and education advocates call for the immediate increase of salaries of education workers in the public sector. We appeal for the speedy enactment into law of House Bill 7211 that seeks to raise the salaries of education workers: P16, 000 for Salary Grade 1; P30,000 for Teacher I; and P31,000 for Instructor I. We demand that budgetary requirements for the increase be incorporated in the 2019 General Appropriations Act.

We maintain that a substantial raise on the salaries of education workers is necessary, justified and long overdue.

The scant salary increase effected by Executive Order 201 since 2016 has proved to be insignificant in the face of continuing spikes in the prices of goods and commodities. The implementation of the TRAIN Law has done more harm than good to the economic status of education workers. Three-year-high inflation rates have eroded both the meager salary increases under EO 201 and the income tax savings under the TRAIN Law. This has plunged education workers deeper into the quagmire of personal debts.

The selective salary increase given to uniformed personnel in January 2018 has brought the distortions in the public sector salary scheme to new levels. This discriminatory action sows demoralization and resentment among civilian personnel.

Two years is too long a wait for the Duterte administration to fulfill its campaign promise of increasing teachers’ salaries. Empty stomachs can no longer wait for 2020. We need salary increase now!

In the name of adequate and equitable pay for all government workers, we also support House Bills 7197 and 7196 which aim to increase the salaries of all government workers: P16,000 for Salary Grade I and P30,000 for Nurse 1.

DepEd under Briones administration gains highest approval rating in latest Pulse survey

DepEd under Briones administration gains highest approval rating in latest Pulse survey

DepEd under Briones administration gains highest approval rating in latest Pulse survey


PASIG CITY, June 14, 2018 – The latest Pulse Asia Ulat ng Bayan Survey revealed that the Department of Education (DepEd) enjoyed the highest approval rating under the leadership of Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones.

During the Briones administration, DepEd’s year-on-year approval rating – 83% in March 2017 and 84% March 2018 – has reached the highest levels since 2005 and significantly gained traction since the Education chief introduced several reforms.
“This is definitely a notable result; it means that our efforts to deliver our mandate for the learners, teachers, and stakeholders are paying off. It means that quality basic education is reaching more learners, in and outside formal school, is becoming more relevant to their aspirations, and is improving their chances at better opportunities in life,” Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said.
The awareness and performance survey was conducted between March 23 and 28, with a sample size of 1,200 respondents from the National Capital Region (NCR), Balance Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, and with a ± 3 margin of error.

The current rating constitutes high performance approval of DepEd across areas, gender, and socio-economic class.

Part of Secretary Briones’s agenda is to ensure that out-of-school children and youth (OSCY), as well as adult lifelong learners, are brought back into the fold of education. Since the Secretary assumed office, the Department has intensified its efforts to provide them with better access to quality basic education.

The Philippine Statistic Authority’s (PSA) Annual Poverty Indicators Survey (APIS) describes OSCY as “family members six to 14 years old who are not attending formal school; and family members 15 to 24 years old who are currently out of school, not gainfully employed, and have not finished college or post-secondary course.”

The 2017 APIS yielded that of the estimated 39.2 million Filipinos six to 24 years old, 9% or 3.6 million were OSCY – a reduction from the 10% OSCY among 39 million Filipinos aged six to 24 as registered by the 2016 APIS.

In the 2016 APIS, high cost of education/financial concern ranked second at 20.2% as a reason for the OSCY’s non-attendance of school. In the 2017 APIS, financial difficulty dropped to third place and the number of OSCY citing it as a reason for being out of school declined to 17.9%.
“We have pushed for the full implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Program and with it are programs that will ensure inclusiveness. We have Balik-Aral for returning learners, and we have the Senior High School (SHS) that equips basic education learners with further knowledge and skills needed for competency in the 21st century,” the Education chief stated.
The Secretary further noted that with the SHS Voucher Program (SHS VP) and Education Service Contracting (ESC), more learners are able to pursue basic education in private schools despite difficulty in finances: “More than subsidies, these programs reflect the government’s commitment to helping ensure that more Filipino children have access to quality education, have the capacity to stay in school, and have equal chances at improving their lives and contributing to the development of the country.”

Deped Statement on the official start of the rainy season


As the nation braces itself for the rainy season, the Department of Education (DepEd) reminds all public and private schools across the country to prioritize the safety and well-being of learners at all costs.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has officially declared the start of the rainy season in the Philippines during a Facebook Live video today, June 8, 2018.

The Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) Service at the Central Office, DRRM Units at the Regional and the Schools Division Offices, and the school heads and DRRM coordinators shall lead the preparations and implementation of precautionary measures to mitigate the impacts of the rainy season.

As to the announcement of class suspensions due to inclement weather, the Department’s policy remains: Classes in affected areas are automatically suspended based on the PAGASA declared storm signals, while local government units (LGUs)—not DepEd—decide on and announce class suspensions within their areas of jurisdiction during calamities in the absence of a storm signal.

DepEd further calls on parents to practice their discretion on determining whether their children should go to school during typhoons, floods and other calamities, even in the absence of cancellation or suspension of classes announcement.

NEWS: Zamboanga City hikes teachers’ allowance

The city government is constructing this year 21 resilient school buildings worth P322.80 million and the Tulungatung National High School is one of the recipients of such kind of facility. (Photo courtesy: City Hall PIO)


ZAMBOANGA CITY
--The local government has earmarked PHP69 million for the incentive allowance for teachers this year.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said this year’s allocation is higher by PHP22 million compared to last year’s PHP47 million.

Salazar said the increase translates to a PHP1,000 cash allowance for each teacher, which is higher by PHP300 compared to the previous allowance of PHP700.

Salazar said the local government also hired 40 local school board teachers to augment the requirements of the Department of Education (DepEd) this school year.

Salazar also announced that the special education funds for school buildings for this year has increased by PHP66 million -- to PHP249 million from PHP183 million last year.

She said 21 climate resilient school buildings, costing some PHP322 million are in various stages of completion in different barangays and are expected to be turned over in time for school year 2018-2019.

Early last week the mayor led the turnover of two infrastructure projects for the education sector here amounting to PHP11.1 million.

This included a bleacher at the covered court of the San Roque Elementary School and the Technology and Livelihood Education building of the Zamboanga National High School West. (PNA)

A&E Test passers granted more options for further education

A&E Test passers granted more options for further education

A&E Test passers granted more options for further education


PASIG CITY, June 9, 2018 – Completers of the Alternative Learning System (ALS), who undertook the old basic education curriculum before the implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Program and passed the Accreditation and Equivalency (A&E) Test-High School Level, are now eligible candidates for higher education beginning school year (SY) 2018-2019.
“The work with ALS never stops; and as persistent as our out-of-school youth and adults who seek to further their knowledge and skills through education, the Department of Education is determined to continuously provide them with more options in life. Our tedious review of existing policies on the transition of learners and our close consultations with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) resulted in this DepEd Order, and hopefully, in better opportunities for our learners outside the formal school system,” Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones emphasized.
Under the newly signed DepEd Order 27, series 2018 (DO 27), or the “Amendment to DepEd Order No. 42, s. 2015 (High School Graduates who are Eligible to Enroll in Higher Education Institutions in School Year SY 2016-2017) in Relation to the Alternative Learning System (ALS),” ALS completers who passed previous A&E Tests for High School Level, including those held in November 2017 and March 2018, are already considered high school graduates under the old curriculum.

Similarly, ALS learners who will finish the program’s high school level in 2018 are also undertaking the old curriculum, thus, are considered high school graduates when they complete the program and pass the A&E Test to be conducted in 2019. Therefore, they are also eligible to pursue higher education.

In 2016, ALS saw 96,634 of its learners pass the A&E Test-High School Level. Despite setbacks in the development of the ALS curriculum to cover SHS equivalent in formal education, its completion and full implementation is expected in 2019.

With DO 27, A&E Test-High School Level passers will now have more options after completing the program. They may choose to either, a) enroll in college/university as first year students (subject to admission policies and requirements of higher education institutions); or b) take skills development programs being offered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and/or other accredited government and private skills training institutions.

These A&E passers are also given the option to enroll as Grade 11 in any public or recognized private schools offering Senior High School (SHS) and choose a specific track based on their field of interest. This is in accordance to DepEd Order No 41, s. 2015, or the “Senior High School Career Guidance Program and Early Registration.”

Respective School Division Superintendents, with the assistance of the Division Testing Coordinators, shall duly certify A&E passers by issuing a High School Level Certification based on the Certificate of Rating (COR) for the November 2017 and the March 28 tests.

Clarifications on DO 27 and/or requests for another copy of the COR must be directed to Bureau of Education Assessment (BEA) at bea.ead@deped.gov.ph (please include your complete name, A&E Test level taken, testing center address, and testing date), or visit 2F Bonifacio Building, DepEd Complex, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City.

NEWS: Government committed to increase salary of teachers - Deped

NEWS: Government committed to increase salary of teachers - Deped

Government committed to increase salary of teachers - Deped


MANILA, Philippines — The government is not turning its back on its promise to increase the salary of public school teachers, an official of the Department of Education (DepEd) has said.

The timing for the increase, however, has to be taken into account since there is still a scheduled salary hike next year under the salary standardization order issued by the previous Aquino administration, according to DepEd spokesman and Assistant Secretary Nepomuceno Malaluan.
“The pronouncement of the executive is that we are committed to an increase in the salary, but there is still a one tranche increase that is coming up for the general salary standardization,” Malaluan said Monday night in an interview with The Chiefs aired on One News, the news channel of Cignal TV.
“Secretary Diokno has committed to commission a study as soon as 2019 comes in. The 2019 fourth tranche kicks in and that’s when they decide on overall increase and comparative increase for the various agencies of government,” he added, referring to Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno.
On the part of the DepEd, he said that they are reviewing the salary of the teachers, noting the significant differences in the rates for teachers and master teachers.
“There might be some salary rationalization that has to be done, but that is still under study,” he said.
“The commitment remains to adjust the salary of the teachers, but probably the timing is something that has (to be considered),” Malaluan added.
In the same program, Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) party-list group Rep. Antonio Tinio said salary increase for teachers is an urgent matter that has to be addressed by the government.

He noted that many are overworked due to huge amounts of paperwork on top of their teaching loads.
“As far as we’re concerned, this is urgent, especially in the context of TRAIN and the rise in the cost of living that it has brought,” the lawmaker said, referring to the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law.The Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC) this week initiated a signature campaign calling for a P10,000 per month across-the-board salary increase for all public school teachers.
“We believe that we deserve better compensation for our teachers would redound to a more effective education delivery and would ensure the proper training of our children to become productive citizens of the future. Unfortunately, the governments misses its obligation to the most important factor of education – the teachers,” he added.
The TDC said they intend to submit the petition on the State of the Nation Address of President Duterte in July.

Meanwhile, public schools throughout the country are lacking nearly 82,000 classrooms, Tinio and France Castro, also of the ACT party-list group, said yesterday.
“The perennial problem of shortage of classrooms and teachers is leading to the alarming increase in the number of out-of-school children and youth,” Tinio and Castro, who are both former teachers, said.
A 2016 survey by the Philippine Statistics Authority, according to them, showed that 3.8 million – or one in 10 children aged six to 24 – were not in school.

Secretary Briones names DepEd’s new spokespersons

Secretary Briones names DepEd’s new spokespersons

Secretary Briones names DepEd’s new spokespersons


PASIG CITY, June 4, 2018 – Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones announced the designation of new spokespersons of the Department in a speech before members of the DepEd Executive Committee (ExeCom), Central Office personnel, and members of the media during the flag ceremony held on Monday.
“I will remain as the main spokesperson of DepEd. The two spokespersons will speak on my behalf whenever I am not available,” Secretary Briones said.
Pursuant to DepEd Memorandum No. 96, s. 2018 (DM 96), Assistant Secretary Nepomuceno A. Malaluan and Undersecretary Annalyn M. Sevilla are designated as the new official spokespersons of DepEd.

Assistant Secretary Malaluan is the Chief of Staff of the Department. He is a lawyer and he represents DepEd in the Cabinet Assistance System (CAS), the inter-agency support unit of the Cabinet where Cabinet directives are coordinated. His office implements, in coordination with various offices of the Department, the special assignments of the Secretary as well as CAS directives to DepEd. His office also monitors the implementation of the top priorities of the Secretary, and provides supplemental initiatives to ongoing programs.

Undersecretary Sevilla, is the Undersecretary for Finance–Budget and Performance Monitoring of DepEd. She advises and assists the Secretary in the formulation, implementation and monitoring of DepEd’s budget.  Her responsibilities also include the operationalization of the Education Programs Delivery Unit (EPDU), which facilitates and coordinates the identification and resolution of bottlenecks and challenges to the DepEd’s delivery system.

In designating new spokespersons, Secretary Briones said that “the objective is to give other members of the ExeCom opportunity to speak on behalf of DepEd and to give previous spokespersons time to attend to their official duties.”

DM 96 also stated that “all other ExeCom members, requested by the media to give interviews or to provide official statements on matters pertaining to DepEd, are directed to first seek clearance from the Secretary.”

SEC. DIOKNO: PBB 2017 WILL BE RELEASED 1ST QUARTER 2018


The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) will continue to release the Performance-Based Bonus of eligible government employees, according to DBM Secretary Benjamin E. Diokno.
“There is no withholding of the PBB for FY 2017. In fact, the FY 2016 PBB release is ongoing and the Memorandum Circular for the FY 2017 PBB was issued last March 9, 2017. The PBB for FY 2017 will be released starting first quarter of FY 2018,” said Secretary Diokno.
The Budget chief further added that the PBB has been effective in increasing compliance to good governance standards, instilling financial discipline, and improving performance management.
“We were able to push compliance to budget, procurement, service standards, and SALN disclosures,” said the Secretary.
The DBM has in fact recorded improvement in compliance with good governance conditions: Transparency Seal increased from 87% in 2012 to 98% in 2016; Citizen’s Charter, from 79.8% in 2011 to 99.7% in 2016; PhilGEPS, from 32% in 2011 to 92% in 2016; and Report on Ageing of Cash Advances, from less than 30% in 2011 to 97% in 2016.

With the PBB, the agencies are now more conscious about budget utilization, as well as linking individual to office performance.

However, Secretary Diokno explained that there is a need to review the PBB eligibility process.
“We must tighten the system of granting the PBB, simplify the validation and address the unintended consequences, like the tendency of agencies to under-target. In this way, we can push for excellence in performance in the bureaucracy,” said the Secretary.
The DBM and partner agencies are also studying the possibility of focusing the PBB for FY 2018 and FY 2019 on attaining process objectives and results rather than Major Final Output (MFO) targets, in keeping with President Duterte’s order to streamline frontline services and reduce administrative burden.
“We are also thinking of rewarding agencies for management improvements in planning procurement, and financial management to improve their absorptive capacity and deliver more services in line with the Philippine Development Plan (PDP),” added the Budget chief.
The proposed changes in the PBB will be discussed with the members of the AO 25 Inter-Agency Task Force and other concerned agencies.

K-12 program to improve quality of education: Briones

K-12 program to improve quality of education: Briones

K-12 program to improve quality of education: Briones


MANILA -- Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones has reiterated that the main objective of the K to 12 program is to improve the quality of education in the country and “not solely to provide immediate jobs for its graduates.”

This, after some reports said "the program is a failure" because most senior high school (SHS) graduates did not land jobs after graduation due to skills-job mismatch.
“It is because your assumption is every single senior high school student will have a job which is not correct because 61 percent or 700,000 to 800,000 of our graduates plan to continue on to college,” Briones said in a press briefing Monday in Quezon City High School.
Briones said that 28 percent of the graduates belonging to technical vocational strand were hired immediately due to the “work immersion or on the job training” requirement in SHS.
“They have a certification from TESDA. Many of them passed the exam of TESDA kaya makakatrabaho na sila. Yung iba kapag tinanong mo bakit sila nagtatrabaho, para maka night class sila ulit, para makapag-aral sila ulit (so they can work. If you ask them why they’re working, they’ll say so they can do night class, so they can study again),” she said.
TESDA, which stands for Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, is the government agency tasked to manage and supervise technical education and skills development in the Philippines.

With the K to 12 program, Briones said students are given better options and opportunities to improve their education and quality of life.
“To those who will go to college, the chances are all up to their hard work since tuition is already free in state colleges and local universities,” she said.
In an earlier interview with Philippine News Agency (PNA), Assistant Secretary Nepomuceno Malaluan said the K to 12 program, in its third year of implementation, is already in a good position in terms of the required infrastructures, materials and teacher training.

Malaluan said that a recent survey showed that SHS education has decreased the percentage of dropouts among high school students.
“Before less than 50 percent of fourth year high school graduates go to college, now 93 percent of the SHS graduates will continue to college, this shows strong support from learners,” he said.
With regard to program implementation, Malaluan said DepEd needs to strengthen its collaboration with the community and private sector to improve on the alignment of education with the companies’ employment requirements.

In April, some 1.252 million learners graduated from SHS. For the school year 2018 to 2019, DepEd welcomed some 2.813 million grade 11 and grade 12 learners based on their projected data. (PNA)
