The problem of students bullying their schoolmates is becoming prevalent in the Philippines. Ted Failon takes in-depth look at campus bullying and finds out the impact of verbal and physical abuse that it can do to a kid being bullied in another eye-opening episode of “Failon Ngayon.”
There are many reasons why children are bullied. It could because of their economic status in life, their physical appearances, or even disabilities. Take the case of 20-year old Peter Bea who was diagnosed In 2005 with meningitis. He had to stop schooling and half of his face got paralyzed.
When Peter returned to school, it was not easy. Oftentimes, he was teased and ridiculed by his schoolmates. Worse, he was physically abused by some bullies. If Peter is bullied at school, “Alex,” on the other hand, admits that bullying schoolmates is one of his hobbies.
What type pf children are usually victims of bullying? How should schools handle and address the problem?
Be part of the solution and action this Saturday (Sept 10) in “Failon Ngayon,” 4:45 PM, after “ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs Special Report.”
