The Bangsamoro government has distributed the three-month salaries to nearly 400 para-teachers who were rehired until the end of school year 2020-2021.
Education Minister Mohagher Iqbal said with P15,000 salary per month, the 393 para-teachers were re-employed from provisional to contract of service following his request to Bangsamoro Chief Minister Ahod “Al Haj Murad” Ebrahim and Ministry of Finance, Budget and Management (MFBM) to extend their services.
“Kami dito sa MBHTE (Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education) ay kung mayroon kaming nakitang paraan, yun po ang gagawin namin. Inaaral po namin at wala talagang pwedeng gawin maliban dito sa ginawa natin na yung mga provisional teachers ay susundin ang batas,” Iqbal said.
The three-month salaries, which were distributed to the para-teachers, covered the months of October to December last year.
The para-teachers were the provisional teachers previously affected by MBHTE’s cease and desist order.
