Radio announcer savage commentary on teachers’ vacation gained fierce reactions: A must read

A radio announcer of Brigada News FM Dumaguete put teachers in a bad light because of his commentary. Tantan Lao Sabalones in his Tirada Brigada block time said things that were out of the blue. Isn’t it the works of journalists to fact check first their topics before they go live?

This radio announcer talks ill of the situation of the teachers at present. According to him, some teachers are complaining about their vacation. He said that a one month vacation is better than none. He said that teachers wanted that their vacation should be two months yet they have salary. He said that teachers have bigger savings because they don’t go to school yet they have salary. According to him, teachers are not that tired of their work provided they only have modules. His guts to say this is on the highest level!

He further said that teachers don’t go to school often, don’t spend for the fare, don’t have to wash their uniforms. This means they have bigger savings according to him. He even blurted out that teachers don’t use their strength during these times. (See full video)

This is what disappoints the community of teachers. This is only a manifestation that this radio announcer doesn’t know anything. Journalism shouldn’t be this way, it should be FACT CHECKED. Before you can comment on something, you need to know first what it’s like.

The radio announcer puts teachers in a bad light for his “unchecked comments”. He is a clear representation of an announcer that “does not know anything”. He does not show professionalism at all.

This radio announcer mocked teachers in every way he can. Teachers are fighting silent battles. They don’t need someone to tell them when and not to complain about their situations. If you are someone who doesn’t know anything then better shut your stupid mouth.

To correct this radio announcer for his blatant disrespect for us teachers, this is for you.

1. Teachers’ DON’T HAVE SAVINGS AT ALL for your information.

If you get jealous of the salary we have then why become an announcer? Why not become a teacher instead? For your information, teachers’ salary can’t even compensate their expenses for their classrooms. They have to budget their hard earned salary for their family and their classroom.

2. Yes my dear, we all go to the school EVERYDAY for your information. We all get to wash our uniforms, pack our lunch, buy our own snacks, pay for our fare. Why do you even care about this? If you see teachers not going to school everyday then it may be their work from home schedule. Regardless of that, you don’t have the right to tell us that in the first place.

3. For the record, TEACHERS USED ALL THEIR STRENGTH AND MIGHT for this modular learning. You don’t know how hard the situation is for us and why would you even care? We don’t need to explain this to you as well, do we?

Teachers don’t need to get an apology from this radio announcer. It is clear he does not know anything at all. Teachers do hope that he be able to walk their shoes for him to realize that he is mistaken.

Teachers deserve more than this. They only want to have a break for them to breathe. If you can’t relate to this then shut up because you don’t know what their reality is. For other people who mock at teachers, try to put on their shoes and you will know what exactly it is to be one. I am a teacher that is why I am more sad to listen to your stupidity at all cost. – Alec | Helpline PH

    Bastos yang dila mo mr.announcer, dapat nag imbestiga ka muna bago ka nagsalita, puntahan mo aming school hanapin mo ang logbook ng attendance nmin, tingnan mo mga payslip nmin kung magkano natitira sa sahod ng mga binabastos mong mga guro, magbasa ka din ng mga batas patungkol sa teacher pra malaman mo kung ano yang bakasyon na inaasam nmin. Bwisit ka!

  4. inggit lng yan, kala nya wlang ginagawa mga teacher during this pandemic times. mas marami nga kami gawa at this time, kaya wala syang KARAPATAN to say such things. INGGIT WALA NG IBA. UTAK TALANGKA KA, A JOURNALIST SHOULD TELL TRUTH BASED FROM FACTS NOT HERESY, NOT AN OPINIONATED BASELESS COMMENT. UNGAS LANG GUMAGAWA NG GANUN.

  5. Many teachers have declined in their health.For me I just discovered I have enlarged heart ,enlarged liver, prediabetis and I need help. may free medical check ba kami? wala? although nagbabayad ako nang 600 a month for Philhealth.Mabuti na lang may CHAMP na i noffer ang Cebu City kaya nadiscover ko ang ibang sakit ko..Tapos I have to pay the internet on my own. I need to wake up at 3 am to prepare since I need to travel 15 miles everyday to reach my station and I arrived sometime at 8:00 pm. because of the traffic. after I arrived home I have to open my internet group chat to check the outputs of my students before I go and rest.Prepare the modules when we reach school for sorting and stapple wire them and to distribute it to our parents to pick up. yan ba ang sinabi ninyong walang trabaho? mahiya naman kayo.

  6. Hala ka Sir, grabiha sad nimo😥. Kung maibabalik lang ang panahon/sitwasyon sana walang nangyaring COVID PANDEMIC kasi maraming naidudulot na sakit sa amin yan, hindi sa nagiging COVID positive aq/kami kundi nagkaroon karamihan ng anxiety, depression, sa aming guro dahil sa work na hindi namin alam kung anong uunahin. Mahirap kalabanin pag mentalidad na ang problema ng isang tao kaysa ibang bagay.
    Sana maging sensitibo po kayo sa mga bagay2x pag kayo po ay nagkokomento lalo na pag hindi buo yung kaalaman mo ukol samin.

  7. Sad to say, may mga ganito palang sinasabi sa mga guro, hindi niya alam nakangiti ang mga guro nakaayos pero sa kabila ng lahat, hindi alam ang uunahin, nandyan gagawa ka ng lahat ng forms, stress ka na agad dahil need itally ang lahat ng nakalagay sa Form 10 sa BC ng mga bata, need tally sa card sa rating sheet , may form 1, 2, 3, 5 ka pang gagawin mabusisi, dyan pa lang kinukulang na kami ng oras sa pagtulog ang tendency magkakasakit kami, may ipcrf pa , may SBM pa may mga seminar at training pa, tapos summer classes ng mga bata, idagdag mo pa ang Brigada Eskwela. Ako sa ngayon stress pa din ,I need a break kaso di pa tapos sa ibang report. Statrt na ng mga seminar sa Monday, pero kahit kailan hindi kami nagrereklamo. Dahil mahal namin ang aming trabaho, ang kailangan lang namin konting respeto o pagtingin sa mga guro , minsan nga hindi makapunta sa school kasi wala ng pamasahe, bibili ka pa ng lunch. I have nothing against you pero pag-aralan mo muna ang sitwasyon bago mo pukulin ng mga kaalaman mo na kulang naman para sa mga guro. Sana mabigyan pansin ito na walangrespeto sa mga guro . Nakaka cause ka ba ng dagdag stress sa mga guro , nakita mo may maaanghang nadin silang usap sa iyo , ang reason noon ay tao pa din kami na nasasaktan. Iniisip ko pa lang na magstart na ang pasukan sa August 22, gagawa kami ng lahat ng devices na gagamitin namin , magreready ng mga visual aids na hindi lang nakatuon sa module kasi nga face to face na, parang titigil ang mundo namin sa kaiisip. Hindi ka pwedeng sumabak sa giyera ng wala kang bala, kapag di magaganda at masasaya ang mga strategies na gagamitin , hindi mo makukuha ang 100% ng interes ng mga bata. Kailangan nila kami , kailangan ipakita namin ang lahat na mahal namin sila. Public Apology po ang kailangan namin sir! God bless and More Power alam kong mahusay kang broadcaster , pero dito hindi mo napag-aralang mabuti.
