By Freddie G. Lazaro

Candon City (20 December) -- Education Secretary Jesli Lapus has reported the various benefits he accomplished for the public school teachers nationwide during his short visit here on the other day.

Lapus cited the three significant development he worked out for the Department of Education (DepEd) such as the release of the budget for the unpaid premiums of the state teachers in the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for the period 1997 to 1998; the inclusion to the national supplemental budget the unpaid salary increment for teachers amounting to about P400 million; and the teachers salary adjustment program.

"Since 2001, there's no salary adjustment given for our teachers. Thus, we filed a law that required for the upgrading of their salaries as stipulated in the salary standardization law," he said.

"There will be the salary standardization III and what is important for this law is the very significant increase of teachers' salary ranging from 50% to 100% for the period of three years implementation starting next year," he added.

He assured the sincerity of the Arroyo administration in giving this salary increase as evidently shown the inclusion of its budget in 2007.
