BSU vows no layoffs in K to 12 implementation
Artemio Dumlao (The Philippine Star) - December 2, 2015 - 9:00am

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet, Philippines – The Benguet State University (BSU) guarantees no retrenchment for both its teaching and non-teaching staff due to K to 12.   

Being one of the pilot universities of K to 12, BSU even sees 2016 and 2017 as an opportunity to enhance its faculty’s educational development.

Through sponsorships from various private and public institutions, BSU instructors, mostly young educators who have yet to finish their masteral and doctoral degrees, will receive scholarships for their professional growth, BSU president Ben Ladilad said.

Instructors who will be able to finish their masteral and doctoral degrees will fill positions later to be vacated by professors due to retire. By equipping young instructors with the necessary postgraduate degrees, BSU will move closer to its vision of becoming “a premier state university in Asia,” Ladilad, who is retiring on Dec. 5, said.

With all the adjustments, BSU will be maximizing the two-year drop in enrollees by giving research and extension loads to affected instructors.

The instructors will be strengthening the university’s instruction function through researches that  will form part of the university’s curriculum, further advancing its standards toward meeting the BSU’s vision.

Another BSU function is its extension wherein instructors do field work, conducting training and seminars for farmers on breakthrough researches done in the university.

To remedy the possible shortage of high school teachers due to K to 12, BSU will transfer some of its instructors from the tertiary to the secondary level.  This will be on a voluntary basis.

BSU high school is under the university’s College of Teachers Education program. University administrators have given assurance that there will be enough  high school teachers for 2016.

The BSU has 300 regular faculty and 700 contractual employees who were assured by the administrators  that there will be no retrenchment as a result of K to 12.
