Public school teachers to get wage increase in 2017
The government announced yesterday that an agreement was reached between Minister of Education Andrés Navarro and the president of the Dominican Association of Public School Teachers (ADP) Eduardo Hidalgo to increase public school teacher wages. They agreed on a general wage increase this year for teachers. The funds for the increase will come from money allotted to teacher merit incentives that would have been granted after professor assessments were in by fall this year. Instead, the assessments will be carried out this year but the monetary incentives will be applied in 2018.
A commission was entrusted with reviewing benefits for public school teachers such as the construction of a social clubhouse, housing, pension improvements, health insurance coverage improvements, among others.
