To celebrate the World Teachers’ Day, the Alliance of Concerned Teachers
(ACT)-Philippines, a member of the Education International, will lead a
nationally coordinated campaign on October 5, 2011.
The ACT members will assemble at the St. Peter’s Cathedral along Commonwealth Avenue by 1:00 p.m. before marching to the House of Representatives, Quezon City where the ACT Teacher Party List Representative-Elect, Mr. Antonio L. Tinio will give his privilege speech to convince the congressmen and congresswomen to increase the budget for each public school teacher’s annual allowance to include additional supplies and materials for teaching aides.
The participants to this activity are the ACT members from the National Capital Region (NCR) and from municipalities outside NCR or nearby provinces.
The school heads of the teacher-members may allow them to participate on official time in this campaign; however, they must ensure that there will be no disruption of classes by applying the "opposite session mode” during their participation in this campaign.
