VM Fortuna wants cash aid for Mandaue teachers


Vice Mayor Carlo Fortuna is pushing for financial support to public school teachers in Mandaue City.

Fortuna urged the City Council to pass an ordinance providing teachers in public schools P10,000 in financial aid.

“We’re looking at P10,000 per teacher by the end of the year,” the politiko said.

According to him, they are still discussing the matter with the City Budget Office.

Fortuna said teachers are demanding for an increase in their cash assistance after the Commission on Audit disallowed the teachers’ cost of living allowance in 2015.
