- A public school teacher has gone viral after photos of his journey carrying modules for students located in far-flung areas went viral
- The dedicated teacher would cross rivers and pass uphill and rocky areas just to reach his students
- He would place the modules in a basin and the teacher made sure tha the modules will not get wet as he would cross rivers
- One of the woes faced by students, was that some of their parents are considered no-read no-write and could not teach their children, leaving some modules unanswered
Photos of a teacher have gone viral after he was seen carrying the modules, carefully placed in a basin, so that they will not get wet when he would cross rivers just to reach his students.
The teacher was Stanley Butalid, who would go out of his way to reach the students of Barangay Tipolo, Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte.
Aside from crossing rivers, he also needed to walk two kilometers, as there's no more tricycle that could bring him to the students.
"Marami ang hindi nasagutan sa module dahil hindi rin alam ng magulang. Yung ibang magulang, no read no write, hindi matututukan ang pag-aaral ng mga bata dahil kailangan rin magtrabaho sa sakahan," said Butalid in an ABS-CBN report.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the learning system. The Department of Education had to make lots of adjustments. They addressed the problem of a lack of laptops for online learning and said that those who do not have laptops need not buy.
Aside from the learning issues, health issues also abound. A teacher who was preparing for the opening of classes contracted COVID-19.
