Dr. Juliet Jeruta, Negros Occidental Schools Division superintendent said
during the presscon yesterday, that aside from Sec. Luistro, there are other top
ranking government officials who are expected to come, like Sen. Franklin
Also, Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon, Jr. will be there to
deliver the welcome remarks during the opening program. He is supporting the
teachers because they are part in molding the future of our society.
The celebration, according to Dr. Jeruta is commemorating the unfading
heroism and roles of teachers in the lives of individuals and in society.
Expected to attend are 7,000 teachers from Regions 6, 7 and 8. One of the
focus in their convergence is the benefits for teachers and other financial
matters that are now part of the 2015-2016 budget formulation.
She did not mention about salary increase for teachers because she said, if
the government will do that, then other government employees will also claim.
