Raffy Tulfo hits back to bashers over the teacher and student issue

Raffy Tulfo breaks silence after he became a buzz online over his controversial verdict to the teacher who was allegedly mistreated her Grade 2 student after failing to surrender his report card.

It seems that many netizens were not happy to the decision, who aired out their opinions and frustrations that led to #NoToTeacherShaming. In light of the backlash he receive, Tulfo affirmed that teacher Melita Limjuco will no longer be sued. However, claimed that the teacher must still be sanctioned and taught maximum tolerance.

The Department of Education has also released its official statement on November 23, which states that a proper deliberation to discuss concerns involving educators must be followed and respected.

“DepEd shall take care and protect both the learner and teacher through due process which is already existing at all levels of governance,” the department said. “Rest assured that this case is being handled by DepEd regional and division offices already through proper procedures according to applicable laws and policies (such as Child Protection Law and Magna Carta of Teachers).”

During his "Wanted sa Radyo" program on Monday, he criticized everyone who was focusing only on the teacher's welfare and nobody even reaching out to the aggrieved student and the student's family.
“Marami po sa inyo d’yan ang nasaisip palagi ay ‘yun bang kawawa po si teacher. Si teacher po ay naapi… And yet ni isa sa inyo, ni isa, kasama na po d’yan ‘yung DepEd school authorities, wala man lang ni isang nag-reach out sa family maging sa bata na para sabihing, ‘Sir, ma’am, hijo, kamusta kayo? How are you taking it, my child? Ikaw ba eh nakakakain pa, hijo? Ikaw ba’y nakakatulog pa? Bakit ‘di ka na pumapasok ng ilang araw? What is going on? Is there anything we can do to help you na para po ma-ease itong stress sa’yo, sa family mo, at sa ina rin?’ Wala po eh. Wala talaga!

“D’yan po sa Child Protection Policy, nakasaad po, yes, nirerecognize po ng DepEd ‘yung mga karapatan ng mga guro na mag-disiplina sa mga estudyante nila, pero hindi pwedeng gawin ito, ito, ito… ‘yun pong maltreatment physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically. In fact, sinabi pa nga sa 2012 na memorandum ng DepEd, ‘Zero tolerance!

“Marami po sa inyo ay nakakalimot na meron po tayo na tinatawag na R.A. 7610. At ano po ‘yung napapaloob sa R.A. 7610? Bawal po ang manakit ng bata whether physically, emotionally, psychologically. Hindi po dapat ginagawa ‘yan dahil protektado ang mga bata ng batas na ‘yan

“On top of that, nakapaloob po d’yan, inuutusan po ng DepEd ang lahat ng paaralan na magtatag ng Child Protection Committee, CPC. Ano po ‘yung Child Protection Committee? Ito po ay isang grupo (na) kinabibilangan dapat ng principal, guidance, representative from the teacher, representative from the student, barangay, social worker.

“Wala po ‘yan. Hindi po sinusunod ‘yan. Dahil kapag meron po ‘yan, ‘yan po dapat ang dumidinig sa mga nangyaring problema between parents and teachers or teachers and students. Wala pong nabuong committee ang anumang eskwelahan, (sa) pagkakaalam ko. Kasi po kung meron sana ‘yan, hindi na po kinailangan pang pumunta dito sa ‘Wanted sa Radyo’ ang mga magulang para ireklamo ang mga pang-aabuso ng mga guro. 

Because doon pa lamang, mapapakinggan na kanilang mga problema sa pagkat ang makikinig sa problema nila hindi lang po si principal at si guro, kundi marami pa po. Kung sakaling magsabwatan si principal at si guro, nandyan po ‘yung guidance, nandyan po ‘yung barangay, nandyan po ‘yung social worker, nand’yan po representate ng estudyante.”

“Napakaganda po ‘yung Child Protection Committee. Pero bakit ‘di po sinunod? Bakit po hindi inimplement? I think this is the time na ‘yung DepEd tignan n’yo po ‘yung inyong 2012 na memorandum order sa mga guro, sa mga eskwelahan na magbuo ng Child Protection Committee. Do it now, dahil sa memorandum order na ‘yan ma-eeducate ‘yung mga guro kung ano ‘yung pwede nilang gawin at anong hindi nilang pwedeng gawin,” Mr. Tulfo said.
