- An older brother took to Facebook and expressed his frustration at what his sister is going through
- His sister is a grade 3 student and it was already late at night but she still kept on answering modules
- He said that at that time, his sister must be sleeping, but since there are still modules that needed to be passed, she has to stay up late
- He also stated that the kids are not robots and they should be resting but she has to complete answering three lessons for one subject per week
Facebook user Antawn Nathaniel Dominguez Tayag expressed his frustration at the plight of his younger sister who needed to answer modules until late at night.
He said that being a grade 3 student, his sister must be sleeping already.
He started comparing how when classes were still face to face, his sister would be sleeping at that point in time.
He then gave a message to the Department of Education saying that the life of kids must not be like that.
He then asked what would be the purpose of grades if in the process one would sacrifice his health.
"Ito ang module ng mga kapatid kong grade 3 sa ganyang edad dapat tulog na sila sa ganyang oras,, noong face to face ang pasok sa ganitong oras tulog na sila ngunit bukas na ang pagpasa sumsagot parin siya, di bat napapahamak ang kanilang kalusugan lalo na kapag oras na ng tulog? Anong silbi ng grado kung ang buhay mo ay nagkalulo? DepEd ang mga bata ay hindi ganito ang buhay dapat tulog na sila ngayon
Sa module nila tatlong lesson (isang subject) lang binibigay sasagutin sa isang linggo? Seryoso, sila ay bata di sila robot gusto nila ng pahinga ngunit sumasagot parin sila."
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 laptop 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.
