Director Darryl Yap trended on social media after he suggested measures that would help the poor.

On Facebook, the controversial director wrote:

“Kung talagang gusto ninyong tumulong sa mahihirap: Gawin nyong libre ang mga Catholic private schools at ipantay nyo sa public ang sweldo ng mga guro ninyo. Yun, ang tunay na malasakit,” he said.

(If you really want to help the poor, make Catholic private schools free and make the salaries of your teachers equal to the public. That is the real concern.)

His post received mixed reactions. Some comments:

“Underpaid lahat teachers Catholic schools.”

“If the government schools are made affordable and their level of education standards will be on par with international ones, as more students enrol in government schools, schools run by tax-free religious institutions will lower their tuition fees and increase teacher’s salaries.”

“Little knowledge is dangerous, direk! Ayayayay. Huwag kaagad magsalita pag kulang pa sa background of the study.”

“Tama. Grabe mahal ng tuition fees sa Catholic schools tapos mababa ang sahod ng teachers na overworked yung iba kasi matatanda na yung mga pari at madre na nagpapatakbo ng schools kaya sila lahat gumagawa.”

“I’m proud to say that I am alumnus of one of the big free private Catholic schools in the country, no others than The Sisters of Mary School – Philippines.”
