This Advocacy Encourages Filipinos to Sign a Petition to Improve Teachers’ Working Conditions

Cerebro, an ed-tech company, is marking this Christmas season with a target to double their just-breached 1,000-signature milestone on their petition to enhance the working conditions and resources available to Filipino teachers. In the spirit of giving and empowerment, Cerebro is inviting the public to join their advocacy for educators’ empowerment.

Amid the holiday cheer, Cerebro’s mission remains focused on empowering educators by ensuring optimal working conditions, resources, and support for their personal success and the success of their students.

According to Cerebro data, Filipino teachers devote a minimum of 400 hours annually beyond their regular work hours, leading to chronic issues that affect their well-being and their ability to deliver quality education. This Christmas, Cerebro is reaching out to parents, teachers, students, and the general public to participate in their campaign by signing the petition. By doing so, they can spread the joy of supporting teachers and improving their working conditions and resources, ultimately making a difference in the educational system.

With at least 70% of teachers worldwide feeling overworked and facing mental health challenges, advocating for optimal working conditions and resources for educators becomes all the more significant during this season of giving. Cerebro’s learning management system and digital content library services aim to make teachers’ lives more manageable, allowing them to reclaim valuable time for personal and social activities, especially during this season for family and reunions.

Justine Itugot, Founder and CEO of Cerebro, said, “As we celebrate this season of giving, do consider signing the petition to empower Filipino teachers. The petition is a powerful gift to demonstrate widespread support for change, which will be presented to relevant stakeholders, policymakers, and educational institutions. By championing this cause, we can ensure a brighter educational journey for every student and unlock the fuller potential of our country.”
