Makoy, a grade 11 student from Brgy. Cebuano, Tupi, South Cotabato allegedly committed suicide after his teacher rejected his module.
On the first day of his class, Makoy complained to his mother about how hard the subject Mathematics is for him.
He took time answering the questions in his module. The teacher, however, did not accept his module because it was submitted late.
Due to his frustrations, the senior high student decided to take back his module and said that he would drop out of his class.
Makoy’s mother said the teacher was inconsiderate, and instead of helping students, she added unnecessary stress to struggling students like him.
The 16-year-old student was last seen inside their house hanging with no signs of life. He was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
