“What happened is painful to us. This is the first time that teachers have been kidnapped here,” said Sheilfa Bagang, 37, a mother of four pupils, echoing the general sentiment in the barangay.
“I have dreams for my children, but with what the kidnappers have done, who would want to teach here. What will happen to us? What will be the future of our children?” the woman said.
She appealed to the teachers to go the extra mile for the children.
But Jakaria said he could not force his teachers to return to work.
