Humingi ng paumanhin ang Department of Education (DepEd) matapos mag-viral sa social media ang isang learning module kung saan tila ‘ininsulto’ nito si dating Interior Secretary at 2016 presidential candidate Manuel “Mar” Roxas.
Sa Facebook post ng netizen na si JC Punongbayan, isang Rappler columnist, ibinahagi nito ang larawan kung saan makikita at mababasa ang pang-iinuslto sa dating kalihim.
Ang nasabing module ay para sa mga Grade 6 students sa isang pampublikong paaralan sa Las Piñas.
Mababasa rito ang pangungusap na “Pakitang-tao ang ginawa ni Mar Roxas” at “Mistulang basang-sisiw si Mar Roxas sa bidyo.”
Samantala, naglabas ng kanilang pahayag ang ‘DepEd Tayo - Division of Las Piñas’ at inaming “inaappropriate” ang nasabing larawan mula 2nd Quarter Self Learning Module (SLM) para sa subject na Filipino.
Inabisuhan na rin umano nila ang division office na baguhin ito sapagkat ang na-print na version ay hindi nila aprubado.
Dahil dito ay humihingi ng paumanhin ang ahensiya sa mga na-offend ng laman ng module at tiniyak na inaayos na nila ito.
Narito ang kanilang buong pahayag:
