Teacher Bullying Students


Students and pupils are now back in a face to face setting at their respective schools nationwide here in the Philippines.

With Vice President Sara Zimmerman Duterte-Carpio at the helm of DepEd, I hope this valid issue of teachers bullying students would be addressed accordingly. DepEd should be loud and clear about its stand of zero tolerance for any act of child abuse, psychological violence, discrimination,  bullying committed by teachers.

Madam VP, I hope you'll act on this matter with the broken window theory in mind. Nag uumpisa pa lang ay kalusin na. Ika nga ayusin na po kaagad bago lumala. Maraming Salamat po 🙏.  Broken window theory is the concept that each problem that goes unattended in a given environment affects people's attitude toward that environment and leads to more problems.

Only on her second week of being back in school, my 13-year old niece was so stressed out and traumatized, nangangalumata na parang panda and has a fever this morning. She did not say anything wrong about school. But upon closer prodding of my eldest brother just this morning, it turned out that she's "pinag-iinitan" at school by her teacher for no reason at all.  Yes, we do not know the reason or reasons of her teacher. One possibility is because she was absent for two days last week because her dad has a health scare. Imagine how my niece is trying to cope with the possible loss of her dad, and the huge responsibility on her shoulder being the eldest and now her teacher is bullying her for no apparent reason. Imagine making her take a make-up quiz with about 50 questions within 5 minutes while constantly nagging her of the time left all throughout that 5 minute-ordeal. Talaga lang po teacher? Ikaw kaya bigyan ko ng exam 1 to 100 sa loob ng 1 minute kasi malaki ka na at definitely triple ang edad kaysa sa mga tinuturuan mo na students. Under time pressure ikamo, so ayan para maramdaman mo paano sumagot under extreme time pressure coupled with unrelenting nagging about the remaining time.

I wonder why some teachers tends to bully their students or pupils for no apparent reasons. Some students or pupils classify teacher bullying as only  "PINAG -IINITAN". That's bull! You call an ace an ace! That is definitely an act of terrorizing students.

Some students are stressed, and even traumatized by subtle bullying done by fault-finding teachers.

Growing up, I was never bullied at school. I got lucky that my teachers are the best of the best in the field of education. My classmates are also cool😎.  So, I cannot relate to the victims of bullying before. But when I was bullied by some peers when I was still new in the event scene I can say that I now uniquely feel those poor bullied students and pupils.  Bullying is still prevalent not only in school but also in other fields of work not only in the Philippines but worldwide. 


Reminder to all teachers, child abuse is a criminal offense punishable by Imprisonment of six (6) months and one (1) day to six (6) years or a fine of not less than Fifty Thousand Pesos (P50,000.00) but not more than Three Hundred Thousand Pesos (P300,000.00) or both at the discretion of the court.

2022 na po, teacher. Tigilan na po ninyo yan fault-finding ninyo sa mga kawawang mag-aaral. Be kind, empathize with your students and please be compassionate.  After all, you're receiving a high salary to mold and help your students be a successful individual and good citizen of this country, not a mentally challenged,  insecure, and traumatized individual. 

I guess a lot of people has realized by now that mental health is important, be it at school, workplace or at home. Please protect your students. Don't add up to the stress that they're going through at home.

Always be kind to your students. You never know what they're going through. 🙏 Rotten tomatoes at DepEd should be removed.

Kindness, empathy and compassion should be practiced by those in the teaching profession because those elements will help your students to become successful in life.🙏 Teach your students to be happy. Don't instill fear in them. 

According to a Harvard University research, they were able to gather evidence that prolonged and/or excessive exposure to fear and states of anxiety can cause levels of stress that can impair learning and adversely affect later performance in school, the workplace, and the community.

The students may feel sick and will start to think about all the things that could go wrong. As a result, the performer will not attack the vault as effectively as they could and the performance will not achieve as high a mark.

So to all the teachers who love to torture their students please stop the unnecessary "power trip".  Some teachers uses their "authority and moral ascendancy over their student by threatening to fail them, that's why some students cowardly suffer in silence fearing that his or her teacher would make good her or his threat. Other teachers connive and tolerate the act of their fellow teachers because they sympathize with their colleague.

The talent of the students in public schools could be at par with the privileged, and sometimes, even better. What and how the teacher teach can be reflected in the way the students think and act. Teachers are there to improve students morally and mold them to be the best. 

To all pupils, students suffering from mental anguish, emotional damage from their bully teachers please feel free to email DepEd action@deped.gov.ph 


You can also fill up the form at their official website just click this link and it will open to the complaint and feedback form of DepEd https://www.deped.gov.ph/feedback/

Teaching is a noble profession. Salute to the men and women in the teaching profession who never stops loving and caring for their students. Mabuhay po kayo 🎉 May your tribe increase 🙏
