“P19, 940—> Monthly entry-level salary for would-be senior high school teachers in Department of Education (DepEd) schools
While this is slightly higher than the entry-level salary of elementary and junior high school teachers, the amount is way below the average salary of professors in the National Capital Region (around P31,915 based on statistics culled from the “Penultimate Report of the Inter-Agency Technical Working Group of the Department of Education, Department of Labor and the Technical Skills and Development Authority” dated 30 April 2015) and the entry-level salary of a PMA cadet (P27,425). It is thus not surprising that there are few takers of the sitting president’s suggested “option” for professors to transfer to senior high schools.”

1. Salary increases for government employees
“The Aquino administration should no longer drag its heels in effecting a new round of salary increases for around 1.4 million employees in government,” said Tinio. “Going by the mandate in SSL 3, it is already delayed by in granting pay hikes to government workers and giving economic relief especially to low- and middle-level employees.”
YES TO SALARY INCREASE! #salaryincreasesaSONA
Mga guro at kawani ng bayan, lalo pa nating paingayin ang ating panawagan para sa mas nakabubuhay at sapat na sahod! I-share po natin ito at hikayatin din ang co-teachers at mga kamag-anak natin!
Sinalubong ng signature campaign laban sa K to 12 ang pagbubukas ng pasukan sa Batasan Hills National High School at sa iba pang mga eskwelahan sa buong bansa ngayong araw sa pangunguna ng Alliance of Concerned Teachers, GABRIELA Party-list, Kabataan Party-list at iba pang makabayang sektor sa Kongreso sa ilalim ng Makabayan Bloc.
Bukod sa panawagan at pagpapapirma, ipinahayag din ni ACT Teachers Rep. Antonio Tinio ang pagkadismaya sa pagsisinungaling ng gobyerno at DepEd sa pagmamayabang nito na handa na raw ang bansa sa ilalim ng K to 12 at walang kakulangan (shortages) na kinakaharap sa usapin ng schools, classrooms, water and sanitation facilities, textbooks at pagpapataas ng sahod sa mga guro.
