DepEd looks into a popular Facebook post about allegedly bullying teachers
The allegations of bullying by a teacher on the first day of courses were brought up in a viral Facebook post, which the Department of Education (DepEd) stated it is carefully investigating.
DepEd spokesperson Michael Poa stated in a Viber message that the concerned regional information officer was “already aware” of the situation and that they were working with the person who posted the incident.
“We must first look at what occurred. In order to gather information, the SDO (Schools District Office) has already gotten in touch with the post’s author. They have already spoken and are investigating what actually happened, he said.
The author of the popular article, Jeannie Vargas, claimed that her niece was dissuaded from attending school.
“No, no. The child doesn’t want to return to school. Teacher takot na humarap. Pumasok na takot (Fearful to face the teacher, anxious to go to school). They are currently consulting with a lawyer and a doctor for my niece in our local DepEd office, she told the Philippine News Agency.
The popular post featured a photo of the handwritten note of the purported dialogue between her Grade 5 niece and the instructor on the first day of in-person lessons, which has received almost 150,000 responses and nearly 70,000 shares.
The writing includes phrases like “bruha, bobo, hayop” (witch, dumb, and animal), which her teacher is said to have said as her niece struggled to finish their writing assignment.
