“True education is demonstrated when education is lost”. This saying perfectly sums up the anecdote that a teacher in Mexico shared in a video viral from TikTok how he failed all the students in his class after noticing an obscene gesture they made during a photo he took with them.
It all started when, in their states of WhatsApp, the teacher published the photograph with her students from a high school in San Pedro Limón, Tlataya (State of Mexico); however, it was thanks to TikTok that she realized that her students had made fun of her practically in her face at the moment of capturing the snapshot.
“The teacher thinking that she finally has a nice picture of the whole group”, reads the superimposed text of the video viral in TikTok of one of her students, proceeding to make a series of close-ups of the photograph of the hands of her classmates, keeping her middle finger raised.
The teacher’s reaction upon learning of the teasing
In a later video of TikTok, the teacher commented how it was that she discovered her pupils’ mockery despite the fact that she felt “super happy bragging that my students had done a good job in class” and asked her followers to help her give them a punishment. “500 hearts and I fail them”, wrote.
After reaching 501 “I like it” in TikTok, the teacher proceeded to notify her discovery via WhatsApp in the group chat you have with them and remind them all that they were “failed”, attaching a screenshot with which he supported his decision.
Students thought it was a “joke”
In another video, as highlighted by the portal elinformador.mx, the teacher collects some reactions from her “naughty” students at the news that they had been failed, as well as the signs of support he received from Internet users for his decision to give them an exemplary sanction.
