Policy Note: Exploring Teachers’ Whys

In the Philippines, perceptions about the status of teachers and the teaching profession vary. While it is still generally perceived to be an honorable profession, it also beset by challenges, such as perceptions of inadequate salaries, poor working conditions, and challenging professional development progression (Cabato, 2018). Despite this, many want to partake and remain in the teaching profession.

The factors were generated through key informant interview which were validated through online survey.
