Rep Tinio plenary interpellation Dep Ed Budget. 092012

Raising the issue of 23,900 volunteer kinder teachers

“the honoraria as per dep ed order for volunteer kinder teachers amounts to 3 thousand per session and 6 thousand for two session per month” “there is is no employer- employee relationship between the dep ed and the volunteer kinder teachers” “they are not entitled to benefits due to gov employee such as GSIS”

at this point I would like to appeal … regarding the plight of Volunteer Kinder Teachers, the amount they are paid is way below minimum wage barely enough for a single person to survive …

I would end my interpellation with an appeal particularly to the distinguished vice chair for basic education through the comm on appropriation for the augmentation of the budge for kindergarten education in order that
this government may increase the honoraria being paid to Volunteer Kinder Teachers until such time as they can be made to a regular teachers receiving the standard salary for public school teachers…. — at House of Representatives.
