[PODCAST] Hear, Hear: Hidilyn, education, and ‘palakasan’ culture
Just like Hidilyn Diaz, students and teachers have problems getting support from their own institutions – unless they rub elbows with the right people

Welcome to Hear, Hear, Rappler’s longread podcast featuring the best investigative and opinion pieces from its archives.

No bells or whistles here; Hear, Hear offers the full, uninterrupted audio version of every piece for you to listen. Investigative pieces are voiced by news editor Paterno Esmaquel, while opinion pieces and analyses are voiced by opinion editor Marguerite de Leon.

For this episode, we’re featuring the opinion piece “Hidilyn’s victory, PH education, and our ‘palakasan’ culture” by educator Sensei Adorador.

According to Adorador, Hidilyn’s struggle to get support prior to her Olympic win is not unique to the sports world. Even students and teachers have problems getting support from the educational system – unless they rub elbows with the right people.
