We received this e-mail from some teachers addressed to the students.
From: Concerned Teachers
We have read your letters on this site and our hearts go out to all of you. We feel itís only fair that your teachers respond to you today. Your frustrations are completely understandable; having no voice in a matter that affects you more than anyone else, must seem utterly unfair.
We care about you more than you can imagine Ė we even miss you. Our action today has your best interests at heart, from the perspectives of educators. And it is at great personal risk that we have taken a stand for you. More than ever we are realizing how much we love the Philippines, our students and our school. Lets all hope that classes resume soon and that this setback only makes us better. We have watched ISM become a better school over the years, because of caring parents, dedicated teachers, good administration, and of course you the students.
Be good, make the most of your day, and letís hope to see each other soon.
