Netizen Joseph Sumayang shared on Facebook photos of a group of teachers in the said town and lamented the difficult challenge these educators need to surmount to comply with the requirements set by the Department of Education (DepEd).
Sumayang then appealed for accessible wireless internet connectivity in their area.

“To those who will see these photos, please help us to have signal here in Brgy. Libertad, Abuyog, Leyte, because our teachers need to climb mountains just to have signal and to connect to the internet and to submit required reports. Thank you so much!” he wrote in Visayan.
In April last year, DepEd vowed to provide every school in the country with an internet connection to improve teaching and learning methods for Filipinos.
Meanwhile, netizens were quick to praise the teachers’ dedication in spite of the challenges of their jobs. /ee
