A Teacher named Rinzie Vargas from Mabalacat Pampanga shared online how he was touch by the honesty of his student.
The teacher posted on his social media account showing the test paper of her student. The paper has no answers and the student just wrote something, saying,
“Sorry po sir. Hindi po ako nakapag-review. Ayaw ko rin po mag-cheat kaya wala po akong sagot. Please appreciate.”
According to Teacher Rinzie, he was touched on how the student shows his honesty. And he understands the situation of the student that rather than cheat he stayed honest than to get a good score but cheat.
“First thing po pinost po ko tong papel ng bata kasi nabigla po ako at naantig sa ginawa nyang sulat imbes na sagutan ang mga katanungan ko. VALUES is more important than having a HIGH GRADES with me. Persepsyon ko po yon, yun po ako.”
“Hindi niya hinayaan ang kanyang sarili na tignan ang kanyang kwaderno, sa halip inisip na magsabi ng katotohanan sapagkat hindi nga namn nya talaga masagutan ang aking mga katanungan,” The teacher said.
The post has received mixed reactions online. While many praised the honesty, many also said a little effort should have been exerted.
A netizen said, “Mabuti naman po yun but responsibility po nila yun bilang student, na mag aral most especially kung din naman po yun surprised quiz. If they don’t want to cheat, they must study. Maybe there’s a valid reason kung bakit di sya nakapag review and I salute those people na nagbibigay ng consideration sa mga estudyante and nakaka appreciate.”
Another said, “Di ka ba nakikinig sa teacher ever since. May enumeration kahit isa wala sinagot kahit hula lang?”
Some say, “Honesty is the best policy. Sabi sa nga ng anak ko, don’t cheat because the first one being cheated is yourself. Ang mortal mong laban ay ang iyong konsenya.”
The post has gone viral with over 26,000 reactions online since posting.
