Recto: Increase chalk allowance to P10k: Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto notes that the P3,500 teaching supplies allowance for public school teachers is too meager, translating only to P16 a day. He said public school teachers need extra money for internet, data or other gadgets needed for the blended education during the pandemic. “That is why we want to increase the allowance to at least P10,000 a year,” Recto told colleagues during the interpellation of Senate Bill No. 1092, or the Act institutionalizing the grant of teaching supplies allowance for public school teachers Wednesday, September 16, 2020.
