The resolution stated that public school teachers a salary adjustment considering their hardship and sacrifices and as a way of recognizing their noble role in educating the youth.

“Like other workers in government, teachers need salary increase to make ends meet with their personal and daily needs and that of their families. They also spend their own money just to provide the lacking necessary school materials in their respective classrooms or in the subjects they are teaching. Some spare food, clothing or even money to their poor or unfortunate pupils or students to encourage them to finish at least their elementary and high school education in spite of financial hardships they are experiencing at their young age,” reads the resolution
