A teacher confessed that she was planning to retire early as she admitted that she couldn’t handle the attitude of her students anymore.
In a Facebook post by CFO PESO Sense, the complaint was shared by a grade two teacher who said that she already lost hope for the current generation due to being undisciplined.
According to her, she didn’t receive any respect from her students as the current policies didn’t allow any failure due to grades.
She also believed that being soft towards her students was proven to be a failure.
“Napagod na ako maging mabait , masipag at maging mabuting tao. Kwento ko lang po. Nagtuturo ako kanina. And nobody listens. I am very prepared with everything. May pa energizer, nagpapakanta ako. Bumili pa ako ng projector para lang maging interesado at interactive ang lesson ko everyday. At para naman di ma left behind sila sa technology.
Kahit mahal sige binili ko para sa mga bata,” she said.
“Pero what did I get? Walang nakikinig. Walang modo kung sumagot sakin. Dadaanan daanan ka lang. Sasagot sagutin ka lang nila. Walang disiplina. Kahit nung beginning of school yr ay nag set ako ng rules. Pero walang epekto. Alam niyo po mga bata ngayon, di na madaan sa positive discipline. Napaka malumanay ko sa klase ko. As much as possible ayoko nagagalit kasi ayoko ma-stress. Pero napapansin ko ngayon, kahit idaan mo sa mabuting paraan di nagiging behave ang mga bata. Pero pag sinagad na nila pasensya mo at nagalit kana. Saka sila titigil at magbebehave. It should not always be like this. Wala silang pakialam sa teacher. Wala na pakialam kung matuto sila o hindi. Kasi alam nila makakapasa naman kahit pasang awa ang grades,” she added.
The teacher also expressed disappointment as the younger generation was more disrespectful now, even towards their educators.
As she couldn’t handle the stress anymore, she resigned and just worked overseas to escape from the taxing job.
“Dear parents, pls raise a child properly. They really need your help. DISCIPLINE STARTS AT HOME,” she said.
“I’m sorry to say this. Ang kabataan ay HINDI pag-asa ng bayan,” she added.
It can be recalled that many experts believe that the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Child Protection Policy, which prohibits any use of corporal punishment towards students, was the culprit behind the difficulties teachers faced.
The department also ordered ‘no-fail policy’ which automatically promotes students to the next grade regardless of their academic performance.
