Answer: Rey has a very strong religious background such that he never fails to
pray and integrate Christian values in his lessons. He teaches Araling
Panlipunan and Values Education. He often quotes Christian proverbs and asks
his classes to start and end each class session with a prayer. Since he teaches
at a public school, some of the students are surprised at the change. However, in
time, his students get used to the routine.
Did he violate any provisions in the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers? If
so, what are these?He violated these provisions if he will use his influence to
coerce or to unlawfully hold the right to religious freedom. But as long as his
action aligned with the ethical standard of a teacher then he has no violation of
any provision thereof.
Any prohibition of these provisions shall contradict the purpose of the Code of
Ethics for Professional Teachers with regards to the religious freedom in the
school and as the nation as a whole.

is teacher's abuse of authority.
