[Press release] TDC on the End of Agusan Hostage Crisis- teachersdignity.com


Finally, all the remaining hostages in Agusan Sur crisis are now free. After five days of being captives by armed men in the mountains of Agusan they will soon be reunited with their families. We are happy for them and we thank all those who joined us in prayers.

We commend the efforts made by the authorities especially the local crisis management committee for this successful negotiation. However, we reiterate our constant reminder to the government, especially the police and military to protect the schools to deter the same incidents in the future and we challenge the president to include it in his priorities. Finally, we would like to remind the DepEd to begin the inventory of hardship posts and provide additional compensation to teachers in areas of armed conflicts.
