Teachers do not deserve to be insulted – Teacher’s Group to Sec. Tulfo

Teachers do not deserve to be insulted – Teacher’s Group to Sec. Tulfo

Vladimer Quetua of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) Philippines said Secretary Erwin Tulfo should apologize to the teachers for his remarks, which he said as “prejudiced and uncalled for.”

“Sir, you cannot cover up your own failures by nitpicking on others. Huwag kami,” Quetua said.

“They (teachers) don’t deserve to be insulted like this and be put in such a bad light. Mr. Tulfo should apologize to our teachers and his agency should in fact properly compensate our teachers who perform duties for the 4Ps program.”

Earlier, Tulfo said teachers might possibly be accused of favoring relatives if the social welfare department had the schools handle the distribution of aid.

“Baka maulit na naman na may pinaboran. Si teacher dahil pinsan niya ‘yung estudyante niya. Eh alam niyo naman ho ‘yung mga teacher natin doon lang nakatira sa paligid-ligid. Baka ma-accuse na naman ho ang mga teacher, kawawa naman,” Tulfo said.

Benjo Basas, chair of the Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC), also reacted on the issue.

“Masakit marinig itong statement from Secretary Erwin Tulfo,” Basas said. “Parang sinabi niyang mandaraya ang mga guro at nagbibigay ng pabor sa mga kamag-anak. Eh wala naman kaming kontrol sa mga programa na iyan kung sakali. We only facilitate and work based on the policies, just like in every election.”
