Business owners told: Grant Cordova teachers discounts

·1 min read

THE Municipal Council of Cordova has asked business establishments in the town to grant discounts to public and private school teachers living or teaching in the municipality starting October 3 to October 9, 2022.

The council approved on Monday, September 19, 2022, Resolution 16-062, authored by Councilor Remar Baguio, “humbly requesting the business establishments in Cordova, Cebu to grant discounts to public and private school teachers who are living or teaching in Cordova from October 3 to 9, 2022, in honor of the teachers and the celebration of World Teachers' Day.”

Baguio noted that the World Teachers' Day is celebrated every October 5, which is why any discount from business establishments would serve as a great pleasure to the educators.

His resolution, however, states that percentage of discount and mechanics is left to the better judgment of the business establishments.

The councilor said teachers are considered one of the modern day heroes for their selfless dedication to their duties and responsibilities as they go beyond their official duty hours and act as second parents to their students.

“Teachers have been underappreciated or even unappreciated at times in spite of hard work they have done for the school, students and even the parents they served,” Baguio said. (MKG)
