“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.”
