In the Southern part of Luzon, an unidentified man sets schoolbags of students, who did not follow school restrictions, on fire. The incident allegedly happened a school in Camarines Sur. A concerned netizen posted a video on social media showing the schoolbags on fire all while the alleged school admin scolded the students involved.

“Bags were burned because students didn’t comply with said restriction not to bring excess things since students were wearing formal attire. Said bags contain personal things such as phone, laptop, money, etc.”

The netizen found the man’s action highly questionable. In her post she stated;

“We came to school to learn and be a better individual. We are not ignorant. AND WE WILL NOT STAY SILENT.”

Another netizen posted the same video and gave his reaction. In his post, he claimed that he wasn’t a victim, he also admitted that they did disobey the regulation. However, he shared the reason why they had to.

“Yung mga student na nasunugan ng gamit halos lahat malayo ang mga bahay. And the only reason kaya may dala silang backpack ay para hindi na sila umuwi ng lunch. Kasi in the afternoon may nakasched din kami na gagawin namin para sa projects namin. And dahil naka business attire kami (dress, heels and etc.) kailangan namin ng pamalit. That’s why may dala silang backpack. Kawawa naman sila, umuwi sila ng walang wala.”

The netizen added that if the unidentified man threw the bags in the trash instead, it would have been more acceptable. He said that it wasn’t necessary to burn the schoolbags in front of the students. He claims that as a student, they know that they have to obey the rules but at the same time is aware of their rights as a student.

“Those laptops, cellphones, bags and other things na nasunog ay pinaghirapan ng mga parents. Hindi yun mabibili with just a snap of a finger.”

Concerned netizens are now asking for the Department of Education’s (DepEd) help regarding the matter. They expect to receive the justice the students deserve from the said incident.
