The Department of Education (DepEd) is investigating a video on social media showing a female individual, purportedly a teacher, reprimanding her students during a live stream on TikTok.

According to DepEd Deputy Spokesperson and Assistant Secretary Francis Bringas, the department is verifying the video’s authenticity. 

In a statement to reporters on Saturday, March 16, Bringas emphasized the need for a complete incident report to determine the appropriate course of action in line with DepEd’s policies. Updates on the investigation will be provided as soon as they become available.

In the viral video, which has gained traction on platforms like Facebook, a visibly upset woman, believed to be a teacher, is seen berating her students for their behavior. 

The two-minute and 11-second clip captures the woman using harsh language, including terms like “ugaling iskwater” (having squatter mentality), “ingrato” (ungrateful), “walang mararating sa buhay” (will not go far in life), and “wala kayong lugar sa mundo” (you have no place in the world).

Addressing her students, the woman expresses frustration over their perceived lack of respect and disregard for boundaries. 

She asserts that teachers are not mere “robots” and should not be ridiculed in the classroom. 

Additionally, she highlights her academic achievements, stating that she did not pass the Board Exams to be disrespected by students who have yet to prove themselves.

Following her outburst, the woman concludes the livestream by rolling her eyes and turning off the camera.

The video has sparked significant reactions from netizens, with thousands of shares, comments, and responses on social media platforms. 

Many users have called for action from DepEd, urging the department to address the behavior exhibited in the video.

Some social media users have questioned the woman’s conduct and raised concerns about her presence on TikTok. They emphasize the need for professionalism and appropriate behavior from educators, as outlined in DepEd Order No. 49, s. 2022, which governs the use of social media by teachers during classes.

DepEd’s investigation underscores its commitment to ensuring a safe and conducive learning environment for students and promoting professionalism among teaching staff.
