Filipinos on the internet burst out of anger against a Bicol school employee because they reportedly ordered the bags with students to drop a 'no-bag & # 39; rule that had been imposed for a school activity.
A shaky video of the flames in pockets and photos of their burned remains at the Bicol Central Academy in Libmanan, Camarines Sur province, went viral with smoking netizens who punished the school authorities, especially the headmaster, Alexander James Jaucian, who was featured the students, whom they called "stupid" to bring the bags to school.
"Bags of students who did not stick to the non-pocket policy for today's school events were confiscated and burned in the schoolyard.The bag contains school supplies, clothing, cp and laptops. school my alma mater Pity, "Count Vincent Cañaveral (@Surrearlism) tweeted on Friday.
By the early evening on Saturday, the Cañaveral post had been retweeted at least 6,945 times and earned more than 15,500 likes.
& # 39; Tasumaki Day & # 39;  Cañaveral explained that the policy without bags was only implemented for the Tasumaki Day & # 39; of the school when students were asked to act as teachers while their teachers attended a conference.
In response to a question from a tweeter, he said: several laptops and mobile phones exploded while being burned.
@theRainShowers was upset by the action of the headmaster.
"Seriously?" This is incomprehensible! Failure by students is a criminal offense that deserves a protocol … Is it hard to think or take a bite for all confiscated items?
An angry @karujasutin said that the school "had absolutely no right to burn the bags of the students only because they did not meet the policy !!! this is insane. "
Another said that if the bag of her child was one of those burned, the school official" could hide better. "
" The parents of students must [make] take an action and (he [for] the property of the students who were burned, the parents of the students had to unite), "said @MariaOroga.
@ Jayru01438039 saw the action of the school official as a "clear picture of power stripping", adding that he "should not teach at all. "
