Angel pinapag-apologize ang teacher sa mga estudyante na tinawag siyang obese sa module

SOME LIKE IT HOT - Vinia Vivar (Pang-masa) - November 16, 2020 - 12:00am

Nag-apologize na ang Department of Education (DepEd) kay Angel Locsin matapos mag-viral ang isang learning module describing the actress as obese person.

Ayon sa official statement ni Roger F. Capa, superintendent ng DepEd Division sa Occidental Mindoro, ang nasabing module ay hindi raw ginawa ng DepEd Central Office kundi sariling gawa ng teacher.

“Upon initial investigation, this Office found out that the said material is not contained in the self-learning module (SLM) developed and quality assured by DepEd Central Office. The said material is a teacher-made assessment for a Grade 10 MAPEH class purposely to measure specific competencies of the learning area.

“Assessment of the learning outcomes in a particular subject is a primordial responsibility of a teacher. Development of tools for such assessments is an academic freedom every teacher enjoys. This is without prejudice to the fundamental principles of test construction which involves social content in which one of our teachers may not have met the standard,” bahagi ng official statement.

“We would like to express our sincerest apology to the concerned individuals who may have been offended or harmed by this incident. The Department of Education does not tolerate nor condone any act of body shaming, ad hominem or any similar act of bullying both in the physical and virtual environments.

“This Office had already communicated with the concerned teacher and ga­thered facts from him. Rest assured that this matter will be given serious attention. Meanwhile, we appeal to the public to spare him from any ad hominem attacks as this single mistake will not define him as a person,” saad pa ni Capa sa statement.

Kaagad namang sumagot si Angel sa naturang public apology sa kanyang Instagram kahapon. Aniya ay okay lang na insultuhin siya pero ang ikinabahala niya ay ang pagtuturo ng guro sa mga kabataan ng pangbabastos at pangungutya sa kapwa.

“I don’t mind the insults. Cheap comments do not define who I am.

“I intended to ignore this issue, but when I read DepEd’s statement, aba teka lang.

“What bothers me most is apart from teaching incorrect grammar to the students, DepEd seems unaffected that the said teacher is teaching bad conduct and sowing discrimination among the children.

“Anong mangyayare sa future kung ang mga kabataan ay tinuturuan ng pambabastos at pangungutya sa kapwa?” pahayag ni Angel.

Sinabi rin ng aktres na dapat daw ay mag-apologize sa mga estudyante ang guro na gumawa ng module.

“This is the more relevant issue DepEd, that you should be held accountable and must correct. Sa inyo naka salalay ang pag asa ng ating milyon milyong kabataan.

“The said teacher should apologize to his students and all the students that read the module.

“I am fortunate that I had teachers who value good manners and right conduct. Every child deserves to have teachers like them,” saad pa ni Angel.
