Last Friday, the President of the Republic of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, said that multiplying the pay of our dear teachers may not be conceivable as of now even as he again promised to execute a compensation climb for the division. State funded teachers have been clamoring for critical increment in their compensations following the compensation climb for cops, officers and other formally dressed work force this year.

He then stated that the teachers will be the next (He will raise the pay straightaway).

The president told a group made generally out of government funded teachers and principals amid the 37th Principals Training and Development Program and National Board Conference in Davao City, Philippines.

Yet we can't make it much double, it is really hard to bear. I'm not accusing anyone, but rather there are essentially an excessive number of Filipinos. We need assets.

As of now the multiplication of their compensation is not conceivable as per Chief Executive which lead to a noisy cheer from the group when Duterte influenced his promise of a pay to climb --- quickly supplanted by the sound of frustration. In the last piece of his discourse, Duterte said he trusts pay rates of state funded teachers would in the long run increment by even 5 times more than what officers at present get.

He then said that to keep in mind, pay will be enhanced. Truthfully, sit tight for it, yet it will be incremental. No rush. The numbers are big [teachers quantity], they will be having a five times more or seven times more than officers.

The Palace had just said the last ought not to expect any pay increment before 2020, but Duterte promised to build the compensation of government funded teachers [most as possible --- no rush].

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that instructors and other government specialists were all the while expecting two more tranches of pay climbs in 2018 and 2019 under the Salary Standardization Law.

Teachers are the reasons kids became doctors, kids became lawyers, and more. So, they are hoping to get a raise to their chosen profession. And we do hope as well, [most] teachers would do their job very well in school.
