‘Patrol ng Pilipino’ Tackles Student Bullying and School Violence

ABS-CBN news reporter Maan Macapagal will investigate the increasing number of violence and harassment cases in schools and the perils of bullying that may lead to criminal behavior tomorrow (Oct 16) in “Patrol ng Pilipino.”

According to a study conducted by the Council for the Welfare of Children, four out of ten students from grades 4 to 6 and high school experience violence inside their school, including verbal abuse and different kinds and degrees of bullying.

The two separate stabbing incidents recently reported in the Far Eastern University and Adamson University have also caused deep worry among parents. How have schools, which are supposed to be the safest place for students, become increasingly violent?

Discover the effects of harassment in Maan’s report, which will feature stories of victims and bullies themselves, as well as the factors that lead to bullying behavior. How does the Child Protection Policy of the Department of Education aim to protect students from forms of exploitation? Should the government prioritize the Anti-Bullying Bill and pass it into law?

Meanwhile, Jeck Batallones will bring the stories behind the heart-stopping University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Men’s Basketball championship game where the Ateneo Blue Eagles triumphed over the University of Sto. Tomas Growling Tigers. Get to know the Blue Eagles coach Norman Black and the heartwarming stories from the team’s best players, Nico Salva and Kiefer Ravena. After five consecutive years of winning, what’s in store for them in the next season?
