"We are one with the DepEd in pursuing the voluntary election service of public school teachers," said Benjo Basas, national chairperson of Teachers' Dignity Coalition.
Basas said it has been a long-time advocacy to liberate teachers from compulsory poll duties that resulted in countless cases of intimidation, court battles, anxiety , threat to lives and even death.

Benjo Basas, head of the Teachers Dignity Coalition (TDC), maintained that the country is not yet prepared for the full implementation of the K to 12 program.
The TDC, along with other militant groups including the Coalition for K to 12 Suspension, will hold protest rallies in Manila today. "We are making noise because the government has not considered the condition of the teachers (in the K to 12 program)," Basas said. Militant groups said around 80,000 teachers are likely to lose their jobs once the K to 12 program has been fully implemented. Basas said DepEd failed to address the issues facing public schools.

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 chairperson, said K-12 still struggling and they will rate the program as "B" for its performance since 2012.
"We urge the honorable committee and the Department of Education (DepEd) to initiate a genuine dialogue and wider information dissemination," Basas said in their statement. Benjo Basas
