DepEd hiring more teachers

Manila, Philippines --- The Department of Education (DepEd) will be hiring 61,000 additional teachers for the coming school year.

"We welcome the opening of new teacher items and the provision of teacher redeployment allowance as part of the government's continuing effort to rationalize teacher placement in all public schools across the country," DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said.

The hiring of additional teachers aims to deal with demand as shown by increased enrollment in public and secondary schools.

Department Order No. 23 also provides the redeployment allowance of P18,000 for these teachers.

"Only teachers who are coming from schools with excess teacher item and are being redeployed to schools with teacher shortage shall receive the redeployment allowance," the DepEd said.

DepEd said the heads of schools must prepare an inventory of teaching staff with information about grade/year level being handled as well as the subject being taught by the excess teacher.

"Any teacher from schools with excess teacher items may express willingness to be redeployed by writing a letter of intent to their respective division/city superintendents. The superintendents can also identify teachers from the surplus list and may require these excess teachers to be redeployed to schools with shortage," the DepEd said.
