1000 DepEd-PBEd graduates to work as teachers

At least 1,000 graduates of the Department of Education and Philippine Business for Education teachers' program will be given priority hiring status as public schoolteachers, Malacañang said Sunday.

Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said the "1000 Teachers Program" seeks to attract the "best and the brightest" to be teachers.

Under the program, promising high school graduates who are at the top 10 percent of their graduating class will be given four-year B.S. Education scholarships in select schools.

Scholars may major in Math, Science, English, Elementary, or Early Childhood Education and should have a B average to stay in the program.

"The scholarship includes free tuition and miscellaneous fees care of PBEd’s reputable partner teaching institutions (TEIs), P2,000 monthly allowance, P2,000 semestral book allowance, and [Licensure Examination for Teachers] review and exam fees," the Presidential Communications and Operations Office said in an online post.

"Immediately after passing the LET, scholars are required to teach in a local public school for five years as return service," the PCOO added.

The "1000 Teachers Program" supports the DepEd's teacher requirement under the K-12 program, which the Asian Development Bank estimates at 84,616 teachers for around two million senior high school students in 2017.

"The pledge to hire graduates from the scholarship program is included in the Memorandum of Agreement signed between the DepEd and the PBEd last May 16," the PCOO said.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
