Para sa mga lisensyadong guro, ihanda na ang inyong biodata dahil sa susunod na taon ay mag­ha-hire ang Department of Education (DepEd) ng 13,000 karagdagang guro para sa mga public schools.

Ito ang lumalabas sa proposed budget ng Dep­Ed na isinumite na sa Mababang Kapulungan ng Kongreso kung saan nakakuha ang mga ito ng pinakamalaking parte sa 2012 national budget na nagkakahalaga ng P1.816 trilyon.

Umaabot sa P238.8 bilyon ang pondo ng Dep­Ed sa susunod na taon kung saan mataas ito ng 15.2% sa 2011 na nagkakahalaga ng P207.3 bilyon sa kasalukuyang taon.

Sa naturang halaga, P2.9 billion ay ilalaan para sa karagdagang 13,000 public school teachers para sa susunod na taon.

Kulang ‘yan!

Subalit para kay Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) partylist Rep. Antonio Tinio, kulang ang 13,000 kaya huwag ani­yang asahan na gaganda na ang kalidad ng edukasyon sa susunod na taon.

Ayon kay Tinio, 93,000 ang kailangang guro para maturuan ng maayos ang parami ng paraming bilang ng mga estudyante kaya napakaliit aniya ang kukuning 13,000 sa susunod na taon.

[ 26 Jul 2011 | Comments Off on Progressive lawmakers attend People’s SONA 2011 ]

The House Makabayan bloc, composed of progressive party-lists ACT Teachers, BAYAN MUNA, GABRIELA Women’s Party, ANAKPAWIS and KABATAAN joined thousands of protesters along Commonwealth Avenue during President Benigno “Noynoy” III Aquino’s second State of the Nation Address, July 25.

The people’s solons were united in saying that Aquino’s speech failed to address the most pressing issues of the country such as land reform, human rights, social services like education and health, wage hikes of the workers among others.

“PNoy’s SONA was a patchwork of band-aid solutions, ranging from the Conditional Cash Transfer Program to the DOST’s anti-dengue mosquito trap, held together not by a coherent vision of development but by mere rhetoric—the overworked wang-wang metaphor,” said ACT Teachers Party-List Representative Antonio L. Tinio.
