Teenage Boy End Life Allegedly Due to Difficulties on Learning Modules in Leyte
A 17-year-old boy allegedly end his life due to the difficulties of self-learning modules provided for distant learning in Leyte.
After complaining about difficulties with self-learning modules given by his school, a youth is believed to have committed sinful behavior on Monday, April 26 in Tacloban city, Leyte province. According to the article of Hataw Tabloid, his older brother discovered the victim, a Grade 10 student, hanging with a blanket outside their home around 6:00 a.m. yesterday.
The victim had been complaining for several days to her parents that he was having trouble completing his modules and decided to avoid learning, according to her parents. Prior to the incident, it was discovered that the victim was capable of completing the household chores assigned to him.
The Department of Education (DepEd) had previously urged the public to refrain from linking the cases of students who allegedly died as a result of modules. There have been many reports recently that students in some parts of the world have committed sinful act as a result of the difficulty of self-learning modules and the struggle with distance learnings, which are being introduced due to the threat of COVID-19.
The Department of Education has issued a general warning to the public about certain persons and organizations that are using such events to defame and discredit the department’s efforts. According to them, such self-death cases were not related to distance learning.
