Pressures on Public School Teachers and Implications on Quality

David, Clarissa C. Albert, Jose Ramon G. Vizmanos, Jana Flor V.


This Policy Note revisits the chronically overworked state of public school teachers in the Philippines. It finds that the workload of public school teachers is not only limited to teaching but also to other nonteaching tasks. Because of this workload, actual teaching is increasingly being sidelined by the multitude of other responsibilities and roles that teachers play. The study also finds the dropout rate as a faulty metric of teacher performance. Given these findings, it urges the government to address human resource distribution at the Department of Education. It also recommends the conduct of evidence-based studies in reducing teacher workload.
