Villanueva renews call for more benefits for teachers

Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva renewed his call for additional allowances and benefits for teachers.

The senator made the call after he received the Gawad Sulo Award for Public Service from the Philippine Normal University.

The PNU Gawad Sulo is the highest award given by the institution to exemplar individuals, groups or organizations that have made significant strides to the development of learning.

“Receiving this award comes with a feeling of grace and gratitude. Most importantly, it’s a reminder to always rise above oneself, especially for the cause of our teachers who change lives, shape minds and mold futures,” Villanueva said.

“For the far-reaching role they play, our teachers deserve better,” he added.

In the 19th Congress, Villanueva filed four bills for the improvement of teachers’ welfare including Senate Bill 564 or Additional Allowance for Public Basic Education Act; Senate Bill 565 or Additional allowances for SUCs and TVI Personnel Act; Senate Bill 736 or Free Healthcare for All SUC personnel Act; and Senate Bill 1045 or Teaching supplies for Public Basic Education Personnel Act.
