- A student was asked to answer an essay question on how to fight drugs
- The student claimed that he’s not the right person to answer and referred it to former PNP chief Dela Rosa
- The teacher later clarified the question by writing a note below his answer
A grade 10 student in one of the private schools in Surigao was tasked to answer an essay question. The questions were related to the current issue of drug abuse.
A Facebook user, Jojo Tabacon, posted his nephew’s test paper on his Facebook account. The post went viral and garnered 54 thousand shares with 33 thousand reactions.
The question sought answers that would address problems against drug abuse in the country.
“Kung ikaw ang pangulo ng Pilipinas, ano ang gagawin mo upang masugpo ang problema sa droga ng Pilinas?”
But then, the student thought that the question was addressed to him, personally. Focusing on what he could do as the president of the Philippines to fight the drugs issue in the country, he said,
“Bakit ako? Si Tatay Digong nga nahihirapan, ako pa kaya? Patawad po, wag po ako. Iba na lang po. Siguro pa mas maigi kung si Bato na lang po”
Tabucun’s nephew misinterpreted the given question, out of 5 points he only scored 1 point. The teacher later clarified the question by writing a note below his answer.
“Halimbawa lang po. Hindi ko sinasabing ikaw talaga,” wrote by the teacher.
The teacher wanted to know if some of the students have insights about drug addiction or an idea on how to fight drug abuse.
He wasn’t able to get the expected answer to the question, but it still showed he was aware of the President’s fight against drugs. He also referred to former PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, for he knew that he is the right person to answer the question.
