DepEd Proposed 2019 National Budget

PASIG CITY, February 16, 2019 – As the agency with the largest number of stakeholders that benefit from the government’s timely delivery of service and resources, the Department of Education (DepEd) welcomes the bicameral report of the Legislature on the proposed 2019 national budget and looks forward to its approval by the President.

A significant provision pushed by DepEd is the P800 million for our teachers’ allowance, which will be given on World Teachers’ Day. The Department negotiated for the allocation as a simple yet necessary expression of gratitude for our teachers’ hard work and contributions to nation-building.

The leadership of DepEd remains committed to continuously expanding the scope of employee welfare, empowering teachers through sustained personal and professional development, and improving their working conditions through thorough review and simplification of systems and processes.

The national budget’s ratification enables the Department to forge ahead with its programs and reforms to ensure that quality, accessible, relevant, and liberating basic education is attained by all Filipinos.
