Legislator scores zero allocation for new SUC faculty in 2013 budget
ACT Teachers Partylist Rep. Antonio Tinio decried the lack of funding for new faculty of the 110 State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) throughout the country in the proposed 2013 national budget during yesterday’s plenary deliberations at the House of Representatives.
“Zero, as in zero. That’s the number of new teaching positions that will be funded in the proposed 2013 budget for SUCs,” said Tinio. “The fact is, there is a shortage of at least 16,674 regular faculty positions for this year that is not being addressed by Malacañang’s budget proposal.”
