Vice Ganda responded to a netizen who lectured him following his viral statement about teachers who continue to call students not raising their hands for recitation.
In It’s Showtime episode on February 16, Vice Ganda said he would make a law forbidding teachers to call students for recitation if they are not raising their hands.
Vice Ganda: "Ipagbabawal ko para sa mga guro, bawal tumawag ng estudyante sa recitation na hindi naman nagtataas ng kamay!" Agree ba kayo, Madlang People? 😅😅😅

“Ipagbabawal ko para sa mga guro, bawal tumawag ng estudyante sa recitation na hindi naman nagtataas ng kamay!” he said.
The comedian said this as “YorMeme” who is a made-up character that spews nonsense.
In a tweet on February 26, one netizen gave an open letter to Vice Ganda saying that teachers never intended to shame students when they call them for recitations.

He even said that calling students for recitations [even if they are not raising their hands] is an effective teaching strategy to promote attention engagement.
Vice Ganda said the netizen made a valid point, but his statement was simply a joke.

“Tama naman po ang karamihan sa mga sinabi ninyo. Matalino po ang pagkakalahad ninyo ng mga argumento ninyo. Mukhang alam na alam po ninyo ang mga sinasabi ninyo. Hanga po ako.
“Yun nga lang po at baka hindi n’yo alam na ang ‘Yormeme’ ay isang RUNNING JOKE! Lahat po ng sinasabi ni Yormeme ay mali. Si Yormeme ay isang huwad at magnanakaw na pulitiko. Isa s’yang maling tao. Sana po’y di n’yo siya sineryoso. Kahanga-hanga po ang matalino at maalam. Pero ok din po ang may sense of humor paminsan-minsan,” he said.
The netizen then received backlash from other netizens who defended Vice Ganda.
They explained that the comedian was portraying a character and the netizen should understand the situation before judging or making any comment.
Nakakaloka na ang haba ng kuda ni sir sa joke ng isang character sketch aka si Yormeme.
Maiintindihan ko siguro sir ang punto ninyo, kung ganiyan din kayo sa jokes ng mga pulitiko na, ehem, binoto mo.
I think nagtagumpay ang sketch kasi nagkaroon ng discussion lol https://t.co/8IvHLbMc33

A teaching technique has always its pros and cons. Here are some disadvantages of cold calling. As a teacher, I don't use it in class anymore. There are other ways/techniques that I find more effective. pic.twitter.com/U6AKAEm9cN

As someone who had patients at the ER sec to suicide due to bullying masked as “cold calling” by teachers, hindi sya all the time effective.
Minsan ang theories/guidelines are there to guide the educators but it still depends on the grp of students on how u can motivate them

hi sir, please do acknowledge the fact na hindi lahat ng teacher kagayo mo ka-dedicated sa profession mo. mali si vice and u have all ur cards to play pero i refuse to accept ur narrative generalizing all teachers practice different learning strategies kasi hindi po lahat.

Wag po masyado i praise ang cold calling technique dahil alam mo naman na malaki din ang negative effect nyan sa students…dapat alam mo yan as a teacher na pag di properly executed damaging yan psychologically and emotionally. Just saying…✌❤
