Noting that four months is not a long enough time to make a proper proposal for a study, several Econ 155 students under Dr. Angelo Tizon told ACH reporters that they’re seriously considering filing a formal complaint.
“Look, we have nothing but total respect and admiration for Professor Tizon, but we don’t think he gave us enough time for our Midterm assignment,” says Mark Santiago, who’s been spearheading the negotiations between the Econ 155 BB class and Professor Tizon. “The focus of Econ 155 is Microeconomics in the Local Level, and its supposed to overlap with our NSTP. Thing is, we’ve only had five, maybe eight, NSTP sessions since classes started in August. That’s simply not enough time for us to interact with the people of Barangay Sipag and think of a good idea for our field study.”
“We’re not going to budge on this. This class has to be a give-and-take, you know? We can’t give our 100% if we’re just rushing to meet a deadline.”
We could not reach Professor Tizon for comment, but according to another Economics professor, he is reportedly currently sitting alone in a reserved consultation room, wondering where all his Econ 155 students are. He was reported to have said, “Huh, I guess they’re all ready with their proposals, then. Wow, I must be getting really good at this Professor thing!”
