Benjo Basas, TDC national chairman, said their group is not convinced that make-up classes should be implemented because they are still compliant of the quarterly school program contained in DepEd Order No. 18, s. 2014 signed by Luistro himself.
...
Basas said that in some divisions of Metro Manila and Central Visayas, make-up classes have started since Jan. 24. This, according to him, has prompted their group to hold dialogs with the respective division offices. The teachers' group also disclosed that in its dialog with Caloocan City Division, the superintendent said that they are just following orders from the higher-ups. Basas, however, said that there was a little victory in the case of Caloocan City because SDS Rita Riddle agreed to postpone the make-up classes to Feb. 7 and it has been cut from five to only three Saturdays. He said the secretary should never leave this concern of teachers to the discretion of the field officials since it is a national policy, thus there should be a uniform interpretation and implementation.

Benjo Basas, national chairman of TDC, explained in the letter that the PBB is a bonus granted by the government to its employees, which the amount ranges from P5,000 to P35,000 depending on the performance of the employees and their agency. He said the PBB for school year 2013-2014 is supposed to be released by October, however, until now, many teachers are still waiting for their PBB like those in schools in Regions 1, 4B, 6, 8, 9, 11, Caraga and ARMM, as of the moment. The letter lamented the fact that those that were able to receive theirs are complaining of outright deductions of supposed taxes. However, the amount differs from one division to another. Basas cited the tax deducted in some schools in Cebu, Nueva Vizcaya and Isabela is 10 percent of their PBB, in Negros Oriental it is higher at 20 percent, while in Tarlac and Pampanga, it is only 8 percent. There are also some cases where teachers paid 25 and 30 percent in taxes. But most of the divisions, especially in NCR and Calabarzon have no deductions. As per existing revenue laws, taxes may only be collected to the amount of bonuses that exceeds P30,000, said Basas in his letter to Henares.

Benjo Basas, TDC national president, said their monitoring showed that the majority of the 30,000 pre-school teachers nationwide have yet to receive their honorarium, four months after the class opening.
Basas said they expect the same problem to crop up in 2012 as the government has allocated only P1.9 billion for the program.

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. Basas said the DepEd should consider the fact that teachers have just finished election duties and need to rest. He 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.
