I was browsing Facebook this morning when I saw this photo and I thought it's worth sharing. Without a doubt, the teachers in the Philippines has something to get excited as the holidays are coming; however as of this posting this photo has already earned different reactions from the netizens citing that this announcement might just be one of those 'broken' promises the politicians carelessly utter to assure another political term.
Just recently, the Department of Education (DepEd) announced that the Performance Based Bonus (PBB) of public school teachers this year might be released this month so it won't take that long to know whether there is truth to this 17,000 bonus.
This is another 'let's wait and see' case. I personally believe that every Filipino teacher deserves more and I am fervently hoping that this promise won't remain a promise.
