Lady doctor to Erwin Tulfo: Social Welfare Secretary ka, ang tapang mong mang-alipusta ng pagkatao ng mga guro

Uh-oh! DWSD Secretary Erwin Tulfo is once again in hot water following his eyebrow-raising statement regarding public school teachers.

This brouhaha started when the DSWD Secretary was sought for comment on the tapping of DepEd in the distribution of DSWD’s cash aids for students and the DSWD Secretary responded that the case of teachers favoring students because he or she is either a relative of a godchildren may happen again and as a result, embarrass the public school teachers as a whole.

Tulfo’s statement did not sit well with some netizens, including Dr. Ethel Pineda, a radio host and social media influencer.

In a Facebook post, Dr. Pineda asked DSWD Secretary if he was serious of his allegation against the teachers.

Dr. Pineda was apparently pissed because Secretary Tulfo was quick to accuse teachers of misdeeds and apparently for his distrust of teachers who live in the community where he or she teaches.

Dr. Pineda remarked that Secretary Tulfo’s behavior is unacceptable and he should be ashamed of himself.

Dr. Pineda was hopeful that VP Sara Duterte will not take this sitting down as well and take up the cudgels on behalf of the teachers.

Netizens have mixed reactions on Secretary Tulfo’s statement.

Wrong choice of words si sir, wrote one netizen.

Another commenter said Sec. Tulfo’s statement reminds how he humiliated a teacher in his show.

Parang ung ginawa ni Raffy Tulfo sa program nya, pinahiya nya ang teacher.

A third wants PBBM kick out Secretary Tulfo from his post asap.

He’s got vile mouth and very low regard for (poor)teachers and he’s the Secretary for DSWD ?I hope the President remove this guy asap— not good for the Marcos brand to be associated with this man.

You may now read Dr. Pineda’s original FB post below.

Really, Mr. Secretary? You are accusing teachers of misdeeds?

Ang husay mo mag-accuse agad. Nilibak mo pa. “Nakatira lang” saan? Social Welfare Secretary ka, ang tapang mong mang-alipusta ng pagkatao ng mga guro. Unacceptable behavior. Shame on you.

Wait for the Department of Education Secretary to take up the cugels on behalf of her teachers. I hope VP Sara will not let this calumny pass.

Ready ka na? You wouldn’t know what hit you.

Reaction?
