MANILA, Philippines- Sinabi ng isang mambabatas na dapat ibalik ni incoming Department of Education (DepEd) secretary at presumptive vice president Sara Duterte Carpio ang Philippine Historybilang parte ng high school curriculum.

“Join the call of thousands of academics and students in their fight against widespread dissemination of fake news and disinformation related to the Martial Law regime’s ill record. Do not use our education system as a tool for further revision of our history,” hamon ni House Assistant Minority Leader and ACT Teachers Rep. France Castro.

“The destructive effects of the absence of Philippine History in the high school curriculum must be stressed, especially now that there are efforts of historical revisionism,” dagdag pa ni Castro.

“The youth should understand the significance of September 21, 1972, the effects of the declaration of martial rule in our country,” aniya. “They should know and understand RA 10368 or the Human Rights Victims Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013.” 

Inalis ng Department of Education ang Philippine History bilang asignatura sa curriculum ng high school students. 

Dahil dito, natatalakay lamang ang mga kaganapan sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas kapag nababanggit sa ibang asignatura sa halip na maging independent subject na nakatuon sa pagtuturo ng paglalahad ng mga kaganapan.

“It is up to the government to ensure that education is a priority, that our educators have adequate support and that the curriculum does not aid historical revisionism and denialism for the sins against the Filipino people,” sabi ni Castro.

Subalit iginiit ng kampo ni Duterte na ang apela ni Castro ay “premature and misleading”.

“In any event, the current leadership of the Department of Education has clarified time and again that contrary to reckless and misleading claims, Philippine History is in fact being taught in the K to 12 curriculum. It is Rep. Castro who sows misinformation by making false claims on history revisionism,” pahayag ni Liloan Mayor Christina Garcia-Frasco, tagapagsalita ni Duterte.

“Taking a belligerent and combative stance in the molding of our youth serves no one except perhaps those whose intention it is to foment discord and disunity in our country. The challenge for Rep. Castro is to not give in to her personal and political agenda and to focus on upholding the welfare of thousands of teachers by legislation which is her duty and mandate,” aniya pa. RNT/SA
