Department of Education spokesperson Michael Poa on Tuesday said that the agency is planning to reduce or eliminate administrative tasks of "overworked" teachers.

Poa added that DepEd is eyeing to employ more non-teaching staff to cover the administrative tasks that need to be accomplished in the department.

"We will be hiring non-teaching staff to complement and to supplement the workload of the current teachers to enable the teachers to really just focus on teaching and learning," Poa said.
