Outgoing senator and Senate committee on Education chairperson Francis “Chiz” Escudero urged the government not to keep the hopes up of the teachers with regard to the salary hike.

KAMI learned that Escudero told the government to prove that there is enough funding for the salary increase.

“Una, kailangan ng batas sa anumang pagtataas ng sweldo at pangalawa, kailangan may certification ng National Treasurer, co-appropriation ordinance ‘yan, kung saan kukunin at kung may pagkukunan bang pondo para diyan,” Escudero said.

“Anumang umento ang ipapasa, siguraduhin nilang kailangan nilang ibigay. Dahil mas malala at mas mabigat para sa’kin na kasalanan ‘yung pinapaasa mo lamang na hindi naman pala kaya,” he added.

In a report by the ABS-CBN News (author Sherrie Ann Torres), the outgoing senator mentioned four possible funding sources such as loans, tax increase, realignment of funds, and savings.

As previously reported by KAMI, the Department of Education (DepEd) said that they are “carefully studying” the salary increase of the teachers. It noted that P150 billion is needed to fund the P10,000 salary hike.

Education Secretary Leonor Briones also reminded the teachers that teaching is “not all about money” but dignity.
