Only 500,000 teachers are in charge of 20 million public school students in the country. With inadequate work benefits and having to teach in overcrowded classrooms, are they still able to motivate their students to learn?
ABS-CBN news anchor Bernadette Sembrano will push for teachers’ better working conditions, appropriate compensation and proper employment benefits in an effort to alleviate their plight, tomorrow (Sep 20) in “Krusada.”
She will hear the story of dedicated educator Marilyn Bartolome, who spends much of her measly salary on debt payments. What inspires Marilyn to work hard and stay devoted to teaching?
Bernadette will also meet up with Benjo Basas, chairman of Teachers’ Dignity Coalition and DepEd Asec. Tonisito Umali to find out if the government addresses the concerns of the teacher workforce.
Listen, take part and be one with Bernadette’s crusade because it takes more than words to make a stand. Watch “Krusada” this Thursday (September 22) after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN, or catch it earlier on DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable Ch. 26), 9:15 pm.
