DEPED should break its silence on the PEI
To once and for all, erase all the doubts and worries of Public school teachers on the bonus called PEI or productivity enhancement incentive, we again urge the Department of Education (DepEd) to issue an official statement on the status of this incentive and assure the teachers that, indeed the agency is entitled to a bonus equivalent to ‘one month salary’ that shall be released within the month of June. Since Malacanang released Executive Order 181, there have been stories circulating that teachers would not be entitled to such or would get a lower amount of P5000. This, despite the assurance from Sec. Armin Luistro that DepEd employees and teachers would be entitled to a maximum incentive equivalent to their one month salary. The assurance however was made during a meeting with TDC Chairperson Benjo Basas and was not made public until this very day, a month after the promulgation of the said order. Posts in teachers’ groups in social media are demanding words from Sec. Armin Luistro to clarify the matter.
