Teacher Tweaks Grade 3 Student’s Hair Due to Low Test Score

Grade 3 Student Suffers Scar After Assaulted by Teacher

CHILD ABUSE – A Grade 3 student suffered a scar to the head after their class teacher assaulted him due to a low test score.

The concept of teachers harming pupils in an educational setting where trust, safety, and mentorship are both alarming and distressing. Teachers are tasked with nurturing young brains, encouraging growth, and maintaining a safe school environment.

However, when this trust is broken, the consequences can be severe and far-reaching, affecting not only the immediate victim but also the entire educational community.


The consequences of teachers hurting pupils go beyond physical wellness and frequently invade the emotional and psychological well-being of those involved. Physical harm inflicted by a teacher can leave lasting scars, both physical and emotional, on the student.

Recently, a teacher from Sta. Cruz Elementary School in the town of San Miguel, Iloilo receives a massive amount of criticism online for tweaking the hair of a grade 3 student. The post garnered various reactions from the online community.

The victim’s mother is determined to file charges against the teacher for the assault. It was revealed that the victim’s classmate informed the mother about the incident, and later, the child confessed and showed signs of distress by pointing out their tangled hair.


The child no longer wants to return to school because of what their teacher did.

Under RA 7610 or the “Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act,” children are protected against any form of abuse, including physical harm inflicted by teachers.
