Benjo Basas, national chairman of the Teachers Dignity Coalition, said many of his colleagues do not know it they are still required to report today for the scheduled in-service training.
Under the calendar for school year 2013-2014, the training should be held from October 28 to 31.
said the DepEd should consider the fact that teachers have just finished election duties and need to rest.
also said election duties might extend to the day after election day, especially in manual elections.
"Thus, we will not be able to report to school on Tuesday, or some of us may still be in the school attending to trouble that usually goes with election duties," said Basas who is a teacher at the Baesa High School in Caloocan City.
