DepEd Vows to Take Actions Against “Online Kopyahan” for Online Class

DepEd Warns “Online Kopyahan” Facebook Group Sharing Answers to Students

The Department of Education (DepED) has vowed to take action against the “online kopyahan” Facebook group allegedly sharing answers for online classes.

Leonor Briones, the DepEd Secretary, will be in charge of the students involved in the so-called “Online Kopyahan” that has recently gone viral on social media, particularly Facebook. Briones responds to a popular Facebook community where students share solutions to their many modules and exams.

“Cheating in schools is a lingering issue. I am not justifying this, but we assure the public we will not tolerate and we are seeking assistance from authorities on who to investigate,” said Briones.

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) had previously stated that they will examine and focus on cheating Facebook pages. Cheating is not just prevalent in schools, but also in human nature, according to the education secretary.

Briones went on to say that adults who are around these students should lead by example and call out deception. “We are taught that honesty is the best policy, and the best teachers of that honesty are the grownups themselves,” Briones asserted.

According to Briones, the government has previously approved limited face-to-face training in locations where COVID-19 infection is unlikely. The start of such classes, on the other hand, has yet to be determined because the resumption must be allowed by the host local government unit as well as parents.

She went on to say that parents must give their permission for their children to return to in-person classes. At least 100 public schools, according to the DepEd secretary, are ready to adopt restricted face-to-face sessions.
