#SalamatDeafEd: Department of Education distances itself from suicide issues

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"The Education Department appeals to everyone to stop connecting the recent deaths of teachers and students to the challenges of distance learning.

“We would like to request to the public to respect the families’ privacy and avoid speculating the cause of death,” DepEd says in its recent statement. “Suicide is a sensitive and complex issue.”"

Washing of hands is the only thing this government officials and it's department is good at.

It may not be the primary cause, but could probably be the triggering cause. It could be one factor that pushed them to the edge. Yan yung mas lalong nagpabigat sa mabigat na sitwasyon nila. Huwag ninyo na pagtakpan ang kapalpakan ng sistema ninyo.

Shouldn't people be more aware of what's going on so as to tackle what problems are happening, instead of silencing efforts to study the reasons behind the suicides? 

It's true that we should not jump to conclusions as indeed mental health has many contributing factors. However, it would be better if they pro-actively investigate and confirm any linkage.

It would be prudent for the Department of Education to take further study on the correlation of the deaths/suicide incidents to the stress/anxiety  felt by students and teachers because of distance learning. 

Why release such a statement when it only boils out to the same reason in the end. Kindly read between the lines. It does have something to do with the stress and pressure the system is giving to all the teachers, parents and students. Please admit that and do something about it. You can never address the problem properly if the Department does not even recognize and admit it's fault and the problem itself.

Pwede naman irespect ang privacy basta yung experts pinag-aaralan din yung solutions for the problem. Pero tama din si DepEd na sana wag na makiusyoso sa personal details.

Education is not a race.

Better planning and approach should be provided both students and teachers.

It's okay if you skip this school year. If you're challenged to study this year, it doesn't amount to failure. What we have here is an alternative for learning. If it doesn't work for you, it's okay to stop trying. WE WILL UNDERSTAND. And we appreciate you for trying. 

To DepEd, we understand that learning needs to continue this year. I wouldn't want to waste the opportunity for my child to continue his school this year. But I would not force it to other children especially those who are underprivileged. Please provide the option to opt out this school year.
