Here in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte called on Congress to pass a new Salary Standardization Law that will raise the pay of government workers, including public school teachers. According to him during his 4th State of the Nation Address (SONA) last July 22,2019 in-front of the lawmakers, “to the teachers who toil and work tirelessly to educate our young, kasali na po dito 'yung hinihingi niyo…hindi masyadong malaki pero it will tide you over.” The statement of our president will give hope for the teachers for their salary increase. This can help our teachers to do more and well than before that can help students to reach their goals.

Being a teacher is hard. You need to be patient, strong and loving. Their goal is to have better generations and with that they deserve to have a salary increase. Their salary is not enough to sustain their needs. According to teacherph.com the starting salary of a teacher in public schools is 20,754. This salary is low, the fact that teachers are the foundation of all the professions like doctors, engineers, accountants, lawyers, and others. Most importantly, they are the present heroes who mold the future leaders of our nation. They deserve to be paid and compensated well. 

In addition to making a teacher’s salary sustainable, a higher salary will lead to a better education for all. In a study performed by international economists Peter Dolton and Oscar Marcanero-Gutierrez, collected data from the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) found that better pay leads to better teacher quality which leads to better student performance. This means that schools that pay teachers more are likely to have increased student performance. Being a teacher is not an easy job, they need to handle hundred of students and through the benefits packages that they will receive it can motivate and inspire them to do their job and excell their work. 

Education is a treasure that we can own that no one can take it away from us. It is something that everyone should have and should be privileged to have. Teachers have a big impact in educating and preparing future members of a civilized society. It is about time to increase the salary of teachers because of numerous duties and responsibilities that are vested in them. The government may try to appreciate the importance and value of teachers before they go to other country and teach there because it has higher salary and many opportunities waiting for them. Before it’s too late they should increase the salary of teachers and give them more incentives. For students, know how to respect and love teachers because they play a big role in our lives. We must be thankful to them because they made us who we are today. They help us to grow our minds and expand our knowledge. Teachers really deserve a salary increase.
