A lawmaker at the House of Representatives on Tuesday pushed for monthly incentive allowances to public school teachers assigned outside their respective cities, municipalities and provinces.

In filing House Bill 10174, Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas said assigning teachers to places outside of their respective localities entails additional expenses on the part of the teachers and “invariably affects” the quality of education.

“It is the hope of this measure to properly recognize and compensate our public school teachers who dedicate their lives to promoting quality and accessible education amidst the hardships of being assigned outside of their residence,” Vargas said in the explanatory note of his bill.

The measure proposes that any public school teacher who is assigned to a city or municipality other than the one where he or she is a resident will be given an additional monthly incentive allowance of PHP2,000.

A teacher assigned to a city or municipality in another province, on the other hand, will be entitled to PHP4,000 in monthly allowance.

The incentive allowance will be discontinued once the teacher is transferred back to his or her home city or municipality.

The monthly incentive allowance will be tax-exempt.

The incentive allowance, however, shall not be availed of by public school teachers who are assigned to a different city, municipality, or province in the event of a national disaster or national emergency. (PNA)
