Walang choice kundi umoo! Teacher’s son: DepEd rigged survey claiming most students, teachers have internet
A teacher’s son has disputed the Department of Education’s claim that most students and teachers have internet access, as discussions continue about holding online classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Education Secretary Leonor Briones shared the survey results during a hybrid hearing on the impact of COVID-19 Thursday (May 21).
Reacting to Briones’ claim, netizen Oliver Ylec said his mother, a teacher answered the survey upon the orders of their supervisor.
“I checked this survey and there was a part that needed to be answered specifically by students. It was distasteful because my mother’s supervisor told her teachers to answer even the students part claiming it was mandatory,” Ylec tweeted.
Ylec said his mother knew almost all of her students had no internet connection but answered the survey in the affirmative because it was mandatory.
“Moreover, the survey limited the options regarding internet connectivity as to ‘having’ or borrowed,” he said.
Ylec said the survey defined “borrowed” internet connection as having access through neighbors or other people, which implied that teachers and students had to find a way to go online.
“The survey was basically a yes to having internet connectivity to anybody who answered it,” he said.
DepEd set the opening of schools nationwide on August 24, but clarified that face-to-face classes will not be required as a precautionary measure against COVID-19.
