Preventing pupil from eating during recess as a punishment
CHARLIE CORREA, Baguio City

I am writing with a hope that the Department of Education in Baguio and the head of Baguio Central School will address a particular concern we have been having with our child’s teacher.

We had our daughter transfer to BCS because of geographical reasons. I trust that it’s a good school, generally speaking. Recently though, our daughter had been telling us that on three occasions, she was not able to eat her snacks because it served as punishment for being “noisy.”

Recently, I heard her say, “Mas gusto ko pa mapalo sa puwet than not eat during recess.” This concern is troubling, but it doesn’t end there. Pupils are not allowed to go out during lunch. This I understand, but not to mingle and even do artworks inside because her teacher would like some peace and silence? Perhaps she chose the wrong profession.

I do not expect my alma mater to have a perfect system, but I do expect my child to eat her snacks or meals.
