To allow teachers to focus on teaching, more non-teaching employees will be hired by the Department of Education (DepEd) to take over the administrative duties currently performed by teachers which, in turn, can lead to an improvement in teaching standards, according to DepEd spokesman Michael Poa.
He said during an interview, “mayroong plano ang ating department na i-ease off ‘yung mga administrative tasks ng mga teachers kasi napapansin na bukod sa pagtuturo, mayroon din silang administrative tasks.”
“Sa ngayon ang plano natin, we need to upscale ‘yung ating mga teachers. So dahil doon, ang gagawin natin is mag-focus muna sila sa teaching, tatanggalin natin yung mga administrative tasks,” Poa added.
Poa added that the agency is thinking about giving teachers “benefits above the base wage.”
